I am an Accredited Facilitator offering independent, confidential solutions to family succession planning.
Independent succession planning facilitation
Being independent means I can bring an unbiased approach and fresh perspective to your family business.
I will help start conversations, lead you through the process and bring clarity when things get muddied by family conflict.
Why choose me
For the last 31 years I have been involved in the agricultural industry in the UK.
I am a director of a profitable hill farm on Dartmoor, work as a South West based rural business consultant and facilitator and sit on the Independent Agricultural Appeals Panel.
Originally completing an Honours degree in Agriculture, I followed this with a Business Advisor Accreditation.
In 2008 I completed a Nuffield Scholarship studying Rural Stress, this included visiting farmers in Australia and New Zealand where Farm succession planning is the norm. I realised that here in the UK silence and denial over this important issue results in high stress and rural business failures. This led to my passion for bringing professional facilitated succession planning to UK farming families and becoming an Accredited Facilitator through the Association of Facilitators.
To take my communication skills to the next level I completed an Institute of Leadership and Management endorsed programme and Association for Coaching Accredited Advanced Diploma in Professional Coaching through Wise Goose School of Coaching.
