I offer substantial experience from both the Executive and Non-Executive perspective in leading organisations to achieve consistently great outcomes.
After a long career as a director of social care services, in Grimsby and Birmingham, and a past President of the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS), I now have a range of different roles. These include chairing Turning Point and a Non-Exec of Anchor housing and care services. These demand business skills and financial acumen, but I also bring political awareness and a specialist knowledge of commissioning.
I am a qualified Senior Practitioner Coach, fascinated by the demands made upon leadership styles in organisations and continue to develop my own skills and awareness to make the best offer I can. I get the importance of clarity of purpose, values and strategy, alongside the influence of leaders at all levels in shaping the culture of the organisation.
