I started my career as a commercial litigation lawyer with Eversheds in London. I then went on to became one of the first – and youngest – people to qualify as a commercial mediator in the UK and was soon after invited to train mediators around the world for the Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution (CEDR) on its flagship Mediation Skills course.

After 10 years in law I set up my own business, offering mediation and leadership and presentation skills coaching. I have:

  • Conducted numerous mediations covering every aspect of workplace and employment disputes
  • Delivered training courses in Hong Kong, Nigeria, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Spain and Ireland
  • Co-delivered a leadership development programme to the senior leadership of Amnesty International
  • Coached leaders and rising talent in central government, professional services, global NGOs and entrepreneurial start ups
  • Enabled a broad range of sustainability professionals and environmentalists to deliver their message through public speaking with power and impact
