I have been actively involved in the professional recruitment sector since 1987, owning and running recruitment agencies since 1993. I am a Fellow of the Institute of Recruitment Professionals (REC).
I’m on a mission to make organizations better by making HR better. I cultivate conversations between HR professionals and organizational leaders and push them to re-imagine the role of human resources. I explore what HR does (and why we do it) by discussing the intricacies, complexities, and absurdities. I inform, share ideas, and develop solutions. I consult with organizations, advise HR teams/professionals, speak to HR and business audiences, and write for a variety of sites and publications. I rattle cages. I take an audacious approach. I push for HR to remain relevant. I work to make HR better.
