Working directly with companies, I craft bespoke programmes tailored to realise potential and identify new routes for growth. I mentor teams, deliver inspirational learning as leadership programmes and advise on discovering unseen commercial opportunities. I provide businesses with a viable creative vision of what they can become, whilst keeping them honest and true to their core values. These companies emerge award winning, desirable and profitable Beautiful Businesses.
Intriguing questions I get asked and love to answer
How do the beliefs of people come together to shape something we believe to be beautiful? How does beauty as a philosophy and practice help us craft better things? How can beauty be applied to services and to organisations? How does beauty shape our decision processes? Can you code beauty? What does a beautiful organisation look like? How does a beautiful business yield high financial returns and can it still be ethical?
How does beauty scale? How does beauty express itself in the language of business?
Should beauty be a commercial duty?
