Keynote Speaker / Panellist

I'm passionate about career change, veteran's career support and improving access to land-based careers. With considerable experience in delivering presentations, I could be the perfect fit for your event.

Recent contributions include the Institute of Leadership's "Redeploying Leadership" series, speaking on the huge positive impact veterans can have in business (watch it here) and presenting the keynote at a Farm491 member's event.

Conferences, Workshops and Training

I have considerable experience managing conferences, facilitating workshops and running training. Please get in touch to discuss how I could help you present an event to remember.

Gateway Opportunities

I'm passionate about opening up land-based careers to professionals with prior out-of-sector experience. The combination of deep lifelong experts working with career-changers who bring a wealth of diverse experience and outlook is highly likely to drive productivity and innovation. I'd love to collaborate on projects to develop opportunities and support career-changers.

A key enabler which benefits all is identifying Gateway Roles, where the portable professional skills, such as leadership, project management, teaching, mentoring and logistics are brought by the veteran providing immediate impact in the rural business. Service personnel are used to learning new roles fast: they are sure to pick up the missing 20% sector knowledge quickly. If you wish to collaborate to make such an opportunity available ...

Career Coaching

Changing career is hugely challenging. Outcome-focused coaching is built around achieving the life and career outcomes you seek. The key building block is the goal, probably expressed as where you want to be two to five years after the career change.  We will work together to define that goal and then build a pathway to it. If you want support throughout the journey, we can do that too.

There is no charge for the initial 45 minute consultation which can be conducted face-to-face, by phone or video-call.

This is a response to recent initial call:

"Our conversation certainly helped me focus on the things that are important to me ... The core tenets we identified of energy, fun, respect for each other, making a difference, work-life balance and a relationship-focused role are very much in my mind at all times! Optimistic about making a change - just got to keep up the momentum.
