As one of the pioneers of business anthropology I specialise in making organisations purpose led, people centric and highly productive in order to achieve sustainability and growth.
I combine my expertise in the social sciences with executive coaching, team systemic coaching and process consulting to work with senior leaders and their teams to develop dynamic and collaborative organisational cultures that connect their values with those of their employees, consumers and wider stakeholders
I hold a PhD in Social Anthropology and have formal training in executive coaching (EMCC EQA), systemic team coaching, facilitation, organisational process consulting, qualitative research and group psychoanalysis. I am a guest lecturer at Cass Business School in marketing and a Visiting Scholar at the Royal College of Art in design anthropology. I am a fellow at the Royal Society of Arts (RSA), a TEDx speaker and my thinking and work has appeared in the Financial Times and other media.
