I hope you enjoy browsing this site. If you do, please get in touch and we can share ideas about our work, and learn in the process!

I am a Business Development Consultant. I set up Blue Ridge Management Ltd to help businesses link their strategic planning and people development. This involves a review of the implications for people of the future strategy of the organisation.

This can often raise questions about organisation structure, succession, payment systems, and learning & development.

There are several practical ways in which Blue Ridge Management can help companies, for example:

To design and run a management development process, focused on achievement of business goals.

To work with companies to ensure they get the greatest return from their investment in management development

To coach senior management in periods of rapid change, so that they understand and work on the personal transitions that will be necessary.

To manage a Development Centre to identify the high talent in a company.

I have a strong network of associates so you can always be assured of the very best expertise, at a reasonable cost!

I am a member of the European Mentoring and Coaching Council, and I work with a Supervisor to help me to develop professionally, and to ensure my clients' interests are well looked after.

I have an MA in Coaching and Mentoring from Oxford Brookes University, and I am an Associate Lecturer working on Career Planning and Personal Awareness at the Business School.

My background is in HR and management development in several industries. I have experience as an HR Director, and Head of Learning and Development for Legal & General. I have also been an interim manager, setting up Blue Ridge Management Ltd in 2001.
