One-Line Bio

Consultant, facilitator and coach. Author of Informal Coalitions.


I work as an independent consultant and business coach, mainly helping managers to improve business performance, lead or facilitate change more insightfully, and develop their leadership capability.

I am Honorary Senior Visiting Fellow in the Faculty of Management at Cass Business School, City University, London.

I was previously a senior manager in the UK power industry, during the period of its groundbreaking privatisation and commercial development.

As a consultant, I have worked with a range of organisations in the private and public sectors, both independently and in association with others, including global performance development consultancy, Lane4.

I gained an MSc in Managing Change from Sheffield Business School in 1999, and am a member of a number of professional organisations. These include the Complexity Society, the Chartered Management Institute (FCMI), the Institute of Business Consulting (MIBC), and the Association of Management Education and Development (AMED). I also run the OD Innovation Network (ODiN).
