I’m often asked to write and talk about the things I do and experience. If you’d like me to talk at your event or conference do get in touch.

My talks focus on the ways of thinking and working that create productive, collaborative and engaging places to be.


Each talk is grounded in real experience working with leaders and alongside teams.  My talks aim to provide theory, useful techniques and inspiration.  

I’m particularly interested in the new challenges which arise from transformation and the adoption of agile methods.

Topics include:



-Coaching Techniques

-Solution Focussed Coaching

-Creating a Coaching Culture

Building high performance teams

-Sustainable Pace, Burnout, Resilience, Wellbeing, Decision making

-Employee engagement and Psychological Safety

-Cognitive Biases and Thinking Styles


-Agile Transformation and change

-Scrum, Kanban, Lean

-Organisation and Team design for DevOps and Continuous Delivery
