I live in Yorkshire, by the sea. I’m a learning & development/talent/OD person: my current job title = Learning & Development Manager. I have a bee in my bonnet about workplaces being a collection of people who can, if we get it right, achieve amazing things together. Outside of work I am an outdoory person who loves hiking and backpacking and having adventures. And I’m extremely fond of my friends and family. I like sailing, croquet, history, and additionally have also been known to make the odd cocktail (and tweet about it). From February 2013 onwards I am walking north from the bottom of England to the top of Scotland. You can read why, here.
