  • Delivery of workshops and ongoing Action Learning  focussed on change, creativity, innovation, collaboration, improvisation  (workshops have ranged from 1 hour to 5 days)
  • Consulting on and facilitating small, medium and large scale culture change initiatives (recently on improving customer service, integrating new strategy into organisational culture, a global initiative to increase female senior leader representation and enabling a culture of experimentation and creativity in service of innovation)
  • Group coaching and group development/group dynamics work
  • Dialogue facilitation – most recently on gender
  • Action Learning Group facilitation
  • Consulting on design and delivery of conferences and events

Some Consulting Testimonials

Steve is one of the most innovative practitioners of organisation consulting (OD) that I have come across. I supervised his dissertation on the theme of how to work ‘in the present’ in a way which enables innovation and change, and it is one of the best I have come across. His academic work is grounded in extensive experience in the corporate world, and by the way, he has another rare quality which is absolute integrity. I would recommend Steve to any one looking for a process consultant with the courage to challenge conventional change methods and who knows what he is doing
Professor Bill Critchley

Steve is an excellent OD Practitioner with superb intellectual and academic grounding, delivered through a highly practical and business focused style. Challenging, supportive, creative and intelligent, he provides the right mix of provocation and difference, and capacity to come alongside the realities of his clients. He is supportive and fun to work alongside – a real pleasure to be in a team with – which makes tough work much easier to deal with. I would strongly recommend Steve to anyone looking for a great coach, consultant and OD specialist.”
