I am passionate developer of people with over 30 years coaching/mentoring experience spanning over a variety of sectors such as SME and corporate environments focusing mainly in the development of leaders of people, teams and individuals alike.
More recently I am now running my own People Development business, focusing on upskilling individuals and organisations in the concept of resilience and mental toughness, this provides evidence-based psychometrics on an individual’s mental toughness and how they deal with pressure and stress. A powerful tool for a coach/mentee relationship. The concept also provides distance travelled reports which demonstrates how they think and approach situations, why they think the way they do, and this also develops and promotes self-awareness. In turn improving performance and wellbeing.
I have supported my partner, who the age of 45 has changed career from having an IT business for the last 18 years to now becoming a commercial pilot. I have watched every step of his training and seen first-hand where has he excelled but also at times struggled. I am currently completing my PPL which I hope to complete this year, time dependant on COVID. I have always possessed a keen interest in aviation, a love, and a passion. I do not however wish to change my career; I wanted to fly and support my partner for leisure flights which we do regularly.
I live in Manchester, I have 2 grown up children, 2 rag doll cats and like I mentioned earlier, a passion for aviation. We regularly fly and visit as many air shows as possible throughout the year.
I was very excited when I heard about Resilient Pilot and I feel humbled to be able to play even a small part in the development of our pilot community, to help support your growth, be alongside you on your journey and to empower you to be the best version of yourself, to then go on and safely fly us all to our near and far flung destinations.
