Native English speaking & globally experienced facilitator
I have decades of experience as a manager, facilitator and learning specialist, having worked for many years with global organisations such as the European Commission (as a Learning Manager) and the British Foreign Office (as a Learning Adviser and Facilitator). I have designed and delivered face to face and virtual learning solutions for hundreds of teams in practically every country in Europe, as well as India and Dubai. I have a particular interest in supporting managers and leaders. I have supported teams with many topics and issues including diversity, inclusion, team dynamics, working across cultures, interpersonal relationships at work, personal impact, managing change, and much more.
In 2021 I decided to offer online courses on the Udemy platform through my own organisation Live and Learn, and I am gradually building my series of Best Boss courses on Udemy.
I grew up in the west of Ireland and began my career in the Irish Civil Service before taking a MSc in Training at the University of Leicester and studying eLearning at Dublin City University.
My first language is English and so all my virtual courses have a very high standard of English.
I am an Associate of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development and certified to administer a number of psychometric instruments. My style is conversational and interactive. I love to meet people and converse, and I hope I have a sense of humor.
I currently live in Brussels with my husband and a ginger cat.
My main hobbies are photography, crafting and genealogy.
