Strategic Planning | Business Planning | Analysis

Strategic and business planning are essential elements in an organization’s success. I bring a unique and comprehensive set of skills to museum and non-profit planning clients grounded in my education, 30+ years of experience as a manager and HR practitioner and supplemented by ongoing professional development. My planning processes are thorough, efficient and enjoyable. My change management mindset helps my clients ensure practical and effective implementation.


Facilitation | Stakeholder Engagement

It is hard to imagine any organizational or planning challenge which does not require engagement of an organization’s team and its stakeholders. Facilitation and engagement are key to almost everything I do.

Museums & Culture

Public Value | Transport and Technology Museums  | Collections Significance | The Empathetic Museum 

I appreciate the opportunity to work in the museums and cultural sector, one in which I have a life-long interest and deep commitment, particularly transport and technology museums. I believe our cultural sector’s success reflects our society’s general health, sustainability and values, and I am intrigued by the challenges for museums in creating public value and the role of institutional empathy.

As a Chartered Professional in Human Resources since 1995, I can help your organization build effective people strategies.
