I am a leadership coach with a strong technical background in complex and successful organisations.

I can help you with leading a digital transformation or instilling a culture of agile working. Together we can find the right way to scale your processes, to embed them in the entire organisation and to develop your leaders to succeed in the modern digital world.

For nearly fifteen years I’ve been building high performing teams, providing mentoring in Agile practices and delivering personal coaching to unlock an individual’s true potential.

I’m always happy to discuss the process of software development, from driving quality in a delivery focussed environment to managing the tensions of business as usual against enterprise defining projects.

My main areas of expertise are in complex real time data analytics, high availability trading platforms and large scale eCommerce solutions.

Having worked with James Osborn for over a year now – I’d certainly encourage anyone looking for career coaching particularly around the software development world to take him up.

Coaching and Mentoring

I’m available to provide coaching and mentoring advice and guidance, especially in technical leadership roles.

I’m always keen to connect up and share my skills, whether it’s mentoring an Agile transformation, or coaching to unlock wider growth and personal development.

Schedule an initial conversation and I’ll be happy to share my thoughts, recommend approaches and put together a plan to help you achieve your goals.

Our first 30 minute conversation will be totally free of charge as we get to know each other and figure out how I can best ensure your success.

I can provide consultations via e-mail, Hangout or face-to-face in Central London.

I am a member of EMCC and I subscribe to EMCC’s Code of Ethics (see https://emccuk.org/).
