What I Offer…

I am The Accidental Manager’s Best Friend.

Working with me is just like working with your best friend.

I’ll tell you things that no-one else will tell you.

  • Like how to get the best from every member of your team, without changing your personality overnight, and without becoming a tyrant or a walkover.

  • How to be fair and still get results.

  • How to stay in control of your team’s performance, so that you achieve your own performance goals.

You'll get honesty from me you about how you come across to your team, and how to make the small but important changes in your approach that will have huge results.

You'll hear what you need to hear, not just what you want to hear.

You'll have someone working behind the scenes to make sure you have all the HR basics in place, but most importantly, that you know exactly what they are for and how to use them effectively.

You can trust me with the stuff you daren’t tell anyone else, like the problems that are keeping you awake at night, the doubts you are having about whether you have the right team or whether this is the job for you, and the changes you want to make to help you achieve your business goals. And you can be sure that I will listen, and I will help you find the right solution that suits your business, your personality, and your team, and I’ll support you to achieve all your business goals.

I’ll put you back where you should be, in control of your team, your time, and your business.

Why I’m good at what I do…

I've worked for some of the biggest companies in the world. IBM, BT Plc, AIG, Boots The Chemists. I've worked in the public sector (for the Learning and Skills Council) and I've delivered training accredited by the ILM, the largest awarding body in Leadership and Management in Europe.

With over 25 years' HR and training experience, there isn't much I haven't seen at work. I'd love to tell you some stories but...confidentiality and all that!

Over those 25 years, I've developed and delivered every HR policy imaginable, managed major restructuring and change programmes, introduced absence management schemes that reduced absence rates by over 40%, harmonised terms and conditions of employment for over 400 employees, trained hundreds of managers in dozens of organisations how to manage teams and get the best out of people, mediated for teams and individuals who just couldn't work their issues through by themselves, handled more grievances, disciplinary cases and redundancies than I care to remember, and have never lost an employment tribunal case.

I know the difference great HR and people management can make, and I want to share that with you, so that you can be the kind of boss that great employees never want to leave. It's not hard, it doesn't take a long time or a lot of effort. Just a clearly focused and structured approach, commitment and consistency.

Management matters. More than you can ever believe. A good manager sees how to get the best out of each and every employee. They make everyone's life easier and better, so all their team can focus on doing their job, and making more money for the business.

As The Accidental Manager's Best Friend, I'll be your HR and people management expert, in your corner, helping you manage better, feel more confident and most importantly, feel happier about managing your team.

So if you’re ready to increase your productivity, reduce the hassle of team management, and build a more profitable business, give me a call.

Things I like…

Tea shops and coffee shops mainly. And gin of course!
