I am an inclusion consultant with a specialism in disability equality. My expertise lies in developing inclusive workplaces and service provision. In addition, I am a memorable motivational speaker and a facilitator of disability training and professional development training.
I am proud of the inclusion and disability confident solutions Making Lemonade has provided to public and private organisations for over ten years. I firmly believe that facilitating diversity and inclusion should not be something done by exception, but should be rooted in the heart of organisations in order that it is ‘business as usual’. Clients tell me that my uncomplicated approach, coupled with my commitment to adding value is what keeps them coming back.
Developing Diverse & Inclusive Workplaces
I offer a wide range of inclusion consultancy and disability confident services from ‘critical friend’ to board-level involvement and support for senior leaders. Staff engagement and valuing lived experience is a regular feature of my work.
Inclusive Service Design
In collaboration with your staff I design inclusive working practices and services that are bespoke to your organisation. By engaging with all stakeholders I create workplaces that meet the needs of all your staff.
I regularly speak at diversity & inclusion conferences and events. My keynote speeches are often described as ‘inspirational’ and ‘memorable’. Motivation and inclusion are at the heart of my messages, and the content can be tailored for your specific audience.
Action learning is an established process which encourages a deeper understanding of organisational and professional issues, whilst enabling the exploration of ideas and strategies. It is known to be effective around a time of organisational change, and adds value as a professional development tool. I am a trained action learning facilitator.
