I have been in HR working with sales, marketing and communications client groups all my professional life. A board director, trustee, coach and facilitator I am told that I have a nose for business along with the amazing ability to find the right balance between the business needs and the human needs and for both groups to feel supported. I  go outside the norm by being in touch with what drives employees, introducing innovative approaches whilst meeting the demands of creating a diverse talent base under very demanding business criteria.
