How did I get here?
I’ve had an incredibly fulfilling career working with some amazing, yet understated, organisations who deliver some of the most valuable services in our society. I started my career in a large FE college, moving into development programmes working with SMEs and individuals to access learning opportunities through publicly funded projects. This gave me my passion for learning and I had my first Eureka! moment, discovering how I learn [see Blog ‘My Journey: Learning to Learn]. This is where my journey truly started, following a professional pathway with the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) that eventually led, a few years later, to gaining a Masters in Managing Innovation and Change at Oxford Brookes University.
Along the way to my Masters, I became a trainer, an assessor, a Talent Development Manager, an Organisational Development specialist and a coach. I developed programmes for learning and organisational development across the voluntary, private, public and community sector. I have worked in mental health, housing, brain injury, and most recently back in mental health as the CEO for an amazing young persons charity, Visyon.
