BUSINESS MODEL REVIEW AND ANALYSIS 

Financial services business are evolving rapidly. Regulatory pressures, new competitors, customer expectations are all driving the needs to review and potentially change your business model to make it fit for the future.

OPERATIONAL EFFECTIVENESS REVIEW 

With many years of operational leadership experience, I love looking at a businesses operational effectiveness. I often use a tool I call Customer Thinking, based on systems thinking methodology to review operations. This methodology often produces surprising results, finds  hidden value and properly executed delivers a significantly improved customer experience.

CULTURE AND CLIMATE REVIEW 

The climate of your organisation is the breathing living heart and sour of your business. When it's great, people love working for you, when it's poor they leave. Many factors drive organisational climate, I work with a number of partners who help assess climate and provide Executive recommendations on how to make a difference.

DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION REVIEW

Today, a focus on Diversity and Inclusion is not just something to nod at, it has the attention of Regulators, Shareholders, Colleagues and customers yet the data still remains poor in many aspects of D&I. As a former Trustee of Stonewall, a founder of the insurance industry's leading LGBT organisation LINK, I have much relevant experience to help you in this area.
