I am an experienced, reliable and supportive professional with a passionate conviction that culture, arts, heritage and museums can change people’s lives and bring communities together.
Most of the work I do stems from my belief that cultural organisations have a responsibility to respond to their communities' needs and agendas and involve them in decisions. I directed the largest ever programme of organisational change and community participation in the museum sector.
With over 35 years’ experience at a senior level across the whole range of the museum and cultural sector, I can help you and your organisation to move forward and transform in an innovative way, with positive outcomes for your communities, strategic partners, potential users and staff.
You can see the range of services I offer on my ‘Services’ page. I have hands-on experience of what is best practice, and also of what is transformational. In terms of participatory practice and organisational change, I have a worldwide reputation for developing cutting-edge approaches. My particular interests and skills are in:
- change management (especially embedding change across organisations)
- developing participatory practice and community engagement
- critical friend and facilitation work
I am happy for you to contact me to discuss what your needs are, and explore in what ways I might be able to help you. You can find my email at the top of the page or send me a quick message via my contact form.
