I offer a range of services to clients, either as a one-off or on an on-going basis, and as the Managing Director and Owner of Courageous Workplaces, I am able to draw upon the wealth of material and resources from Courageous Workplaces and CourageousHR as appropriate.
Project Management / Interim Managment
Most of my career has been spent either working within or for organisations on the implementation of 'people' projects. Since I went independent (2003), I have managed projects for a diverse range of clients including global software and IT, European medical devices and global FMCG companies.
Clients use me to deliver complex projects. I am often faced with multiple countries, multiple stakeholders, matrixed organisations, unclear deliverables, tight cost constraints, opaque relationships and different political agendas. On a number of occassions I have been called in to implement the recommendations of one of the 'Big Five' consulting firms and ended up agreeing with the client to do something very different from their proposals!
Through Courageous Workplaces, I (and my Associates) can deliver a range of advisory services to clients and individuals. These range from the traditional consulting to development workshops and programmes.
Teachers Pension Scheme Changes
I offer Trustees, Boards, Senior Teachers and Teacher Representative groups independent advice and support in how recent changes to contribution rates to the TPS will impact you and your school. I can advise on the technical aspects of consulting with teachers, implementing contractual changes and the process of change. In addition, I can help you screen and select benefits providers, conduct benefits evaluations and provide cost implications.can deliver a range of advisory services to clients and individuals.
I have and continue to mentor a small number of senior professionals, typically HR or responsible for HR teams, and are happy to talk to individuals about offering this as a service.
Throughout my career I have been a trusted advisor to CEOs, MDs, Directors and senior professionals, both in business and HR. I can bring this experience and the wealth of knowledge that I have gained throughout my career and from the hundreds of HR professionals and managers that I worked with and have run workshops for to you.
I regularly speak to groups of management and Human Resources professionals on a range of topics – marketing and HR, talent management, the future role of Human Resources and courage in organisations.
I have delivered seminars and key note speeches to groups of up to 150 professionals and am very comfortable working with translators for non-English speaking audiences.
My inspirational talks are based on delivering key themes (agreed in advance) with a mix of research, humour, real-life stories and practical advice.
I have delivered workshops to hundreds of HR professionals from around Europe, Africa and the Middle East and with my broad HR background across multiple countries, I am comfortable delivering material that is both highly relevant to your situation and practical in its application.
