“I am a passionate advocate of helping people achieve their full potential. My experience has given me the ability to act as a critical friend in a continuous quest for improvement and innovation.”
I have been working with local government since 2010 when I led O2's Local Government Futures Forum (LGFF) designed to help councils maximise the benefits of technology. This achieved a response from 10% of Great Britain’s local authorities and featured in The Guardian’s top innovations in the sector in 2013, and convinced me that an insight- based approach is the secret to innovation and transformation.
I have built a portfolio approach to my work, my main role of which is being an Independent Councillor at Pembrokeshire County Council. My professional career has seen me working predominately with public sector clients for organisations such as O2, Microsoft and Northgate Public Services, as well as consulting with niche businesses working within the local government space. I have a strong customer service ethos, with experience of creating and managing high-performing teams. I am an experienced facilitator and coach, able to utilise a range of thought-provoking and practical materials, and am in my element delivering tailored strategy and leadership development programmes that will accelerate the progress of the individuals and teams attempting to lead change in local government.
I am a proud public servant and currently the Welsh Local Government Association's deputy spokesperson for digital and innovation. I hold Non-Executive Director roles with Pobl Group and Data Cymru, am an approved LGA member peer, a community councillor and a school governor.
