I have worked  in the UK  and New Zealand in a number of senior management roles. With  35 year’s experience in local government , private sector and  charity settings I’m told I have a well  well-rounded  business background . Excellence , innovation and culture are the focusses for my ongoing  management work in the Charity sector.  I would describe myself as a Social and third sector entrepreneur  

With Xemplar3s consulting there is a  focus on the third sector to implement the best strategies  from business, sport and the third sector to  support development programmes for charity organisations.  

As a Co-Founder of  Chesil Sailability, Kartability and Dorchester Community Kitchen I have been active in the local community before meeting the amazing team that have built Dorchester Community Kitchen during the Covid emergency and now are realising our original goal of building stronger local communities with Community Share. 

I have  delivered  team, leadership and organisation effectiveness programmes for clients such as  Team New Zealand, Oracle Racing, Team Prada, NZ Rugby Union, Fiji Rugby, Cricket New Zealand, , NZ Netball, ANZ, ASB, Vodafone, University South Pacific, Auckland University, Origin Energy and  McDonald’s Restaurants.  

Away from work I continue  to have a  keen interest in sport and the outdoors with sailing and cycling occupying my  free time.
