It’s time to reclaim the original definition of good company: a place where we foster strong personal relationships and fruitful collaboration.
We help you realise this by creating a system that: assesses and improves the quality and resilience of relationships; and builds a dominant culture that helps relationships to thrive.
A big part of my work has always been around delivering transformation value in culture and identity as well as P&L. Whether that was with KPMG, both in the UK and Asia, delivering transformation projects for blue chip organisations or developing strategies for a number of charities.
Alongside Company, I’m also a founding partner at Maisha + Co, a creative collaboration consultancy.
I‘ve always held a deep interest in strategy, and have worked in many contexts helping companies and charities in organisational design and effectiveness. Amongst others, that led from corporate finance with JP Morgan, into the third sector with Medair in Somalia and Afghanistan, and onto management consultants McKinsey & Company.
More recently, I was CEO of Tearfund for 10 years, leading over 1,500 staff globally, before leaving in 2015 to pursue a wider range of interests.
I’m passionate about raising up a generation of leaders who are able to form sustainable, impactful, influential relationships, drawing on my experience as CEO of an International Development organisation for 14 years and as a Senior Manager at a large Telecommunications Company. As well as my work with Company, I lead Forge Leadership Consultancy.
My strengths are in ideation, developing others, strategic thinking, connecting disparate pieces of the jigsaw and activation.
