I have used my multi-cultural background in a range of multinational organisations. I have supported diverse multicultural organisations in developing and localising strategies to instil & realise behavioural change at an organisational & individual level.
I have also contributed in HRD/OD solution development and localisation. Fluent in Japanese and English and with MA in Linguistics. Love gardening and pottery.
I'm part of the UK Accounts Department and I'm responsible for issuing all of Impact's sales invoices both electronically or by post in a multitude of currencies sent to our clients all over the world. I work closely with lots of my colleagues both here in the UK and overseas. Out of work I enjoy spending my time cycling in the beautiful Lake District Countryside, walking and spending time with family and friends.
During 35 years in Impact I have specialised in leadership development, working with every imaginable kind of organisation; meanwhile, at IFLAS I am Professor of Sustainability Leadership. In both roles, I am driven by the urgent need for change in the nature and purpose of business education. My tendency to scepticism, especially about leadership, began to take shape when I was expelled from school, a career high-point not since surpassed.
Using ten years L&D industry experience, I build trusted partnerships with clients to create detailed project plans for complex initiatives. I manage program execution and implementation, working with teams of consultants and coaches to ensure excellence. I co-lead our global knowledge management strategy, which transformed global collaboration and knowledge sharing. Being a mom of two young girls keeps everyday an adventure and in my spare time I love to golf.
With over 20 years' experience in organisation evolution and people development, working for both small and international companies, my distinctive attributes are positive energy, curiosity, and assertiveness. I believe that no business Strategy can be delivered without a people Strategy, which leads my daily commitments traveling in Italy and Europe.
