This is my story

Having entered the wonderful world of UK Dentistry in 2003 thanks to a chance encounter with a persuasive dentist and a curry, I've spent the past 20 years helping dental professionals and businesses to reap the rewards of responsibility.

I love to help practice owners and managers to grow their leadership, teams and businesses with purpose - creating places where people love to come to work.

I'm both a qualified educator and a Fellow of the Institute of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability Professionals, which has provided me with the balance of skills needed to do this well. My experience as a senior leader in organisations on three continents has taught me that businesses work best when they are purpose-driven and responsibly-led.

I'm an author, speaker and panelist for the Private Dentistry and Dental Industry Awards.

Being a Boss in today's world can be an incredibly challenging task.

It often feels like you're juggling multiple plates while riding a rollercoaster, constantly striving to prevent any of them from falling.

Having spent 15 years in East Africa as a senior leader of an international development charity, where I eventually became the CEO, I understand the pressures you face. We managed various programmes, including a social enterprise and a full-service private dental practice, so I am well-versed in the demands of dental leadership.

Despite not receiving formal leadership training, I managed to thrive! Through the guidance of my mentors, coaches, and a great deal of studying, reading, and practice, I learned how to lead and, more importantly, how to view myself as a leader.

I have successfully led teams for over 20 years, gradually developing my leadership skills and knowledge on the job, day by day, week by week, and month by month. Now, I have distilled the insights I've gained into user-friendly programs to support people like you.



"It's now our go-to resource for tackling challenges and

making informed decisions.

Since Elleven’s foundation we have always partnered with charity, in our case the Smile Train. We’ve also wanted to do the very best for our team. After nearly 10 years it was time to review and refocus, as well as widen our support and get a greater buy in from the team. We wanted to ensure we were covering the all-important environmental aspects."
