My partner and I are excited to welcome a tiny new addition to our family in November; I begin parental leave on 1st November 2023, and will be back to work in early April 2024.

What does that mean if you want to work with me?

Please consider me completely "off-grid" from 1st November until 2nd January 2024 . You can still hire me to run your operations and projects from 8th April 2024

From 3rd January until 4th April, I'll be monitoring emails around once per week . If you have immediate needs in this window, please leave me a message and I'll endeavour to support any requests in a timely manner, subject to the baby nap schedule at that time!

Wo-manifesto

I am led by...

  • Creativity - Transcend traditional ideas and rules, patterns and methods, interpretations and expectations. Create new ones.

  • Curiosity - Always be interested; even in the seemingly uninteresting. That’s often where the best bits lie.

  • Commitment - Bring your whole self to everything you do - not just business. Don’t hold back, but try to leave on time.

I know my strengths...

I am:

  • Brave - In thoughts and actions, I step forward

  • Enthusiastic - I’m willing and able to help when I can

  • Adaptable - I am quick to think, decide and act; I make stuff work

  • Articulate - I can convey concepts and stories (I’m working on feelings!)

  • Independent - I look for my own solutions and invent new ones

I will be generous with my skills...

I can:

  • Join the dots - Spotting opportunities, connecting people, seeing over the horizon

  • Problem solve - I respond well to immediate challenges

  • Provide creative input and challenge expectations

  • Focus equally on “task” and “process”

  • Prioritise and provide pragmatism

  • See the bigger picture - who, what, why, where, when

  • Get stuff done 

I follow my inspiration...

I am inspired by:

  • Stories - books, podcasts, films and documentaries

  • Something where there once was nothing - creative projects and clean sheet technology

  • Models, theories and frameworks - adapting them and trying to apply them

  • Consistent and carefully curated aesthetics

I will seek and share joy...

I get joy from:

  • The initial “brain download and breathe out”

  • Putting a creative spin on something practical

  • Creating something from nothing

  • Talking, writing and sharing stories

  • Ticking off the to-do list

I will always evolve...

These were key moments in my “professional” life:

  • Getting given three new laptops, three new racing cars and making it work, despite a little “can’t do this” cry. Being asked to get my passport and join the team

  • Walking away from a financially secure, but mentally toxic workplace - in a relatively split-second decision. I’ve never regretted it on any level

  • Creating an event from scratch because I realised no one else would

I truly believe that...

We should all spend time doing what we love - whether that is growing your business, working on what you are good at or spending time with the things and people you care about.

I make that happen by...

  • Taking on projects

  • Managing operations

  • Giving structure, systems and skills

  • Sharing stories and experiences

  • Making stuff happen
