Even the best teams need help sometimes.
I'll work with you to
discover what's really important
plan a way forward.
There are times when teams get stuck, despite the best intentions of everyone involved. In these moments, external facilitation can be the catalyst for breakthroughs and renewed momentum. As an experienced facilitator, I offer a space for teams to step back, reflect, and engage in meaningful dialogue. My approach is tailored to unravel complex dynamics and guide teams towards clarity and cohesive action. Whether it's resolving conflicts, aligning on objectives, or simply finding a fresh perspective, I'm here to help you navigate through these challenges and emerge stronger and more united.
Impact with Experience
Across my career I've co-founded and worked with a range of organisation types, including:
- Worker co-operatives: I'm the co-founder of Symbiota, a not-for-profit worker co-operative that reaches over 70,000 people every month through its events brands.
- Activist organisations: I co-founded UK Uncut, an anti-austerity movement with a reach of 50,000, and subsequently advised the Occupy movement and Extinction Rebellion.
- NGOs and thinktanks: I was the network organiser for the New Economy Organisers Network, a key player in the 38 Degrees digital team during its period of fastest growth, and the youngest ever board member of Greenpeace UK.
My diverse experience is complemented by a highly technical background in artificial intelligence, complexity science and physics, an ICF Level 2 qualification in transformative coaching, and extensive meditative practice.
What I offer
Some of the ways I work with teams include:
- Retrospectives: Conducting reflective sessions to review past projects or periods, identifying successes, challenges, and areas for improvement.
- Vision and Strategy: Helping teams identify key objectives, create actionable plans, and align on a path forward.
- Conflict Resolution: Navigating conflicts to find common ground and foster a culture of understanding and respect.
- Decision-Making Processes: Guiding groups through complex decision-making scenarios in an inclusive and effective manner.
