I’m a people, team and organisation development specialist, coach, speaker and author.
After 26 years in a FTSE100 company, I now bring my experience and expertise to other businesses and organisations. I improve focus, productivity and capability by helping to build exceptional teams and develop exceptional team members and leaders.
I work with ambitious businesses and organisations that want to improve the performance of their teams. You may need to start up a new team to deliver a project, or want a senior team to work together to define a business strategy. You may have a dysfunctional team with conflict between members, or demotivated team members with a lack of engagement.
I set up my business after a successful career at Rolls-Royce plc. I combine specialist development capability and senior level HR experience with a background in engineering. This delivers creative and pragmatic solutions that solve your real needs, within the context of your organisation.
I’ve been a member of successful project teams and senior executive business teams and I've led teams of up to 50 people, including globally.
I’m a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development with Level A & B psychometric accreditation and I'm a member of the Professional Speaking Association.
My purpose is to deliver growth to individuals, teams and organisations. I set up AWD Development Solutions to focus on what I really enjoy – developing people and teams so they can grow businesses.
I work in areas of team development, change management, succession planning, organisation design and development, coaching, analysing training needs, talent management, leadership development, development strategies and processes, performance management, facility moves and start-ups, early career strategies, recruitment process design, career development, and workshop, event and meeting design and facilitation.
