A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME AND MY WORK
I was born in South London. My mum was English and my dad Jamaican.
My life in education has included primary teacher,
Headteacher, (twice) and University Lecturer. I really enjoyed it all, but my work as a consultant has been specially rewarding as I have the opportunity to visit so many schools and communities.
Both as a University Lecturer and a Headteacher, I became fascinated about the way our thoughts impact upon feelings and behaviours. I went on to research some of the latest neuroscience and became a Master Practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programming in 2008.
I now work as an Education Consultant delivering keynotes and leading training events and workshops around the country. I love my work as I get to learn from, and to share insights with, thousands of children, parents, carers, and school staff. A real privilege!
