…helping you make the impossible, possible

I work with individuals, teams and across organisations or communities to help you deliver impossible results. Over the last 25 years this has included working with large corporations, entrepreneurs, sports professionals and charities, as well as large-scale projects such as the 2012 Olympics. I am a Non-Executive Director of EMMY and BAFTA-winning visual effects company Jellyfish Pictures, and a writer and speaker on issues ranging from leadership, to flexible thinking and the dynamics of conversation. My books are 'Blamestorming: Why Conversations Go Wrong and How to Fix Them' (2014) and 'Workstorming' (2016). Do also visit www.conversationexpert.com
