Executive Coaching Board Advisory Strategic Finance Developing narrative for HE leadership teams
I have retired from my full time role of Finance Director in the Higher Education sector and now focus on the topics in which I am most interested; unlocking potential in people. My chosen routes to do this are through strategic finance advisory, board advisory and coaching activity. I am now working with Invisible Grail (InviisbleGrail.com) which is a unique collection of very experienced colleagues who help University leadership teams to develop compelling narratives about their purpose and strategy.
I love learning and reading ; I am developing my poetry writing and songwriting skills; walking and photography are other long term interests - all of which now compete with grandchildren support !
