A bit about me
I have leading-edge expertise in working with leaders and their companies to optimise their commercial creative potential, building an innovative, entrepreneurial capability to achieve bigger goals and greater success.
My clients say that I bring a unique perspective to people and business development as I combine my coaching, mentoring, facilitation and consultancy skills with real world, commercial business experience. I have proven expertise in designing and delivering business innovation and growth activities and also in coaching business leaders.
I have worked in a variety of different industries – from accountancy to retailing, publishing and transport, where I acquired significant experience of working at board level across a number of sector-leading businesses.
I am an associate tutor at the University of York, designing and delivering executive development and leadership training in business creativity and innovation in the UK and overseas. I am really proud to be part of the team there, providing world-class professional development and training that makes a real impact on leaders and their businesses.
Driven by my passion for helping business leaders to succeed and achieve their full potential, in 2016 I achieved my PhD in corporate entrepreneurship at the University of York. I completed ground-breaking research into developing high performing entrepreneurial talent.
I live in Ripon, North Yorkshire, UK, and travel nationally and internationally for business.
When I am not working, my other passions include: my French Bulldog, Paddy; Spain, Spanish language and tapas; mixed media art (have a look at my creations on Instagram @bigbang_mixed_media) and creative writing.
Why I created the Idea Time Membership
I created the Idea Time Membership to help me to achieve my mission of helping as many entrepreneurs, and their businesses to grow and achieve more than they ever thought was possible.
I love my coaching and consulting business. I started it eight years ago, and provide in-person, high value, customised and growth-focused services for my clients in the UK and overseas. My work brings me lots of joy. I meet amazing, kind and genuine people who want to keep learning and growing themselves and their companies.
To run alongside my in-person coaching and consulting, I wanted to create a complementary business model to share my experience, resources and strategies with as many people as possible. My aim was to create an enjoyable, super productive and results-focused experience. I also wanted to make the whole customer value proposition as accessible, affordable, useful and engaging as possible.
Launching my Idea Time Membership achieves all of those aspirations!

Your Business Roadmap
From my own PhD research, and years of hands-on, practical business experience, I’ve created my 6 element Innovation Roadmap, which explains the key drivers that all businesses need to focus on to grow and achieve their business strategy.
It diagnoses where you are with your big, hairy business goals so that I can really help you with the areas that will accelerate your success the most.
These 6 elements are the building blocks of best practice innovation and business growth and are based on what has been proven to work according to research and live application in businesses just like yours.
The 6 underlying themes that businesses need to be great at to maximise innovation for growth are:
As the first step in your Idea Time Membership, you will complete my members-only online Innovation Roadmap Scorecard.
