Important Quotes:

“Championship leaders are the people who are taking the growth of the business or their team professionally in the same way that a sports person might do right.”

“We’ve got like 3 guiding principles in our business. One is work on really stimulating problems. Second, it’s to work with inspiring people, and the third is that everybody should earn what they deserve.”

“Don’t drink coffee in the morning for like 90 min until you wake up.”

“Be really clear about the kind of work that you just naturally will gravitate towards. I think that’s a fabulous thing to reflect on.”

About The Guest:

Are your teams stuck in the day-to-day without space to be inventive?

Have you set an ambitious vision but the ‘how’ has got teams running in circles?

Do you need to change ways of working but don’t know where to start?

If so, I might be able to help you.

I’m passionate about inspiring teams to take on seemingly intractable problems (and win). I love reconnecting teams with the adventure of a gnarly challenge and I get a kick out of pushing people ‘on stage’ and watching them deliver the work performance of their career (with backstage support of course!).

In 2017 I founded Sprint Valley – a Change Consultancy that helps teams navigate complex challenges so they can leave work proud and arrive home happy.

Together with my global team of (frankly stupendous) experts, our consulting-meets-coaching approach gets teams unstuck and helps them climb mount improbable. Every time.

Our clients are always the hero – and we’re the plucky sidekick, there to guide and support. Oh, and they win awards for the work we do together – which makes me leave work proud too.

We’ve transformed teams at Intel, McDonald’s, Nike, Gordon Ramsay, Scottish Power, National Grid, Vodafone and a host of companies you’ve not heard of yet (but will very soon).

Specialities: Innovation, Leadership Development, Design Thinking, Behaviour Change.
