I help employers and workers with the whole host of challenges that they face in the workplace. I’m the organised, unflappable one and I take all the embarrassing photos at the Christmas party.
I think the best way to find the right solution is to find out the result that the client wants and look for the least risky way of getting there. A client once said that I give honest and direct advice and had never let them down. My clients know that I always deliver to a deadline.
