How I Help
Passionate about Inspiring Excellence
In addition to running open programmes, I also deliver bespoke training programmes specifically designed to meet your identified business or personal objectives. I specialise in management, leadership, personal development, sales training and customer service programmes.
I have a passion for coaching and offer leadership and personal performance coaching on a one-to-one basis. I’ve developed my own corridor coaching model -bQUICK® Coaching, and written a book. I deliver coaching programmes, ranging from three-hour masterclasses through to four-day Diplomas, to support you to implement a coaching culture in your organisation.
Since 2002, my Horses for Courses® programmes have been using experiential equine facilitated learning techniques to improve business and personal performance by exploring people’s abilities to build rapport, lead, communicate, coach, negotiate, and influence.
Bespoke programmes tailored to your individual training needs to deliver tangible and sustainable business results.

One of my big passions is the diversity of my work. I travel all over the UK and the world, delivering learning and development programmes, and working with clients from all different backgrounds and cultures is a part of my job that I love.
When it comes to your training needs, I’m as flexible as you need me to be. If you’d prefer to have your training delivered in-house, I’ll travel to you. Or if you’d rather go off-site for your training, you can come to my own training venue in the heart of the beautiful Northamptonshire countryside.
My converted barn offers you a relaxed training environment, which is conducive to full body, experiential and brain-friendly learning. The gardens and paddocks make great breakout areas when the weather is good, and during the breaks, delegates often go for a walk to either visit the horses or our neighbouring alpacas. The training room is very versatile, and depending on the nature of the programme, we have the flexibility to work either with a boardroom style set up or more informally without tables.

We have a wealth of commercial expertise and we make sure the learning insights you will gain working with the horses is transferred directly into your business and workplace scenarios — delivering tangible and sustainable business results.
“There is something about the outside of a horse
that is good for the inside of a man.”
Insightful, inspiring, rewarding..great links to real life leadership situations .. thank you for a wonderfully fun and powerful day.
Thank you for a really great and memorable day. We have all been talking about it non-stop. The way you were able to blend your horse whispering skills with your leadership training was awe-inspiring. I know it will have a massive impact on our business.
The facilitators, both equine and human, were fantastic. I loved “the out of the box thinking”, which challenged my beliefs. The debrief session, with live business scenarios, gave me new strategies to handle some challenging business issues.
Have you ever done this?
A colleague stops you in the corridor and asks “Have you got a minute? I just want to run something by you.” Your heart sinks, you’re rushing to your next meeting.
You feel torn between wanting to help and needing to be somewhere else. Your mind is already at your next meeting. You decide to help.
“OK what’s the problem?” you say. You half listen, and then you give them your best advice – tell them what they should do quickly, succinctly and move on.
And in some situations, with some people, that may have been a good call. However, often in these moments, we miss out on the amazing opportunity to develop and empower our people.
Using the bQUICK® Coaching model, you can combine awareness, intention, and skill to make a real difference in just a few highly focused moments in the corridor, at the coffee shop or on the computer.
When you choose to coach, you can quickly and easily tap into a myriad of business benefits that adopting a coaching style to your communications gives you.
Using the bQUICK® Coaching model will give you a simple structure to enable you to purposefully empower and grow your people, increasing engagement, accountability, learning, creativity and performance.
