Hi, I’m Mandy

With over 15 years' experience in HR & People Management, I've figured out the strategies that truly work when it comes to creating a happy, high performing team, and tackling problems in the workplace. Now I share my expertise with entrepreneurs and business owners through a variety of services, tools & templates.

Do you find HR complex and confusing? Perhaps you’re unsure how to interview people, plan for difficult conversations or get the most out of your team? Or maybe it’s hard to make time for HR, when you’re busy running a business.

If so, you’re not alone.

By working with me, you’ll feel empowered to make positive changes in your business. You’ll avoid costly mistakes and solve the problems that are draining your time and energy.

Over the years, I’ve helped hundreds of people hire, motivate, manage and retain the best & brightest people. I’ve also created innovative HR strategies that reduce cost, increased employee engagement and improved team performance.

My approach to HR is ‘refreshingly different.’ My advice is based on what I know works in the real world, not the text book answers. I offer an alternative to ‘traditional’ HR consultancies, where the services are rigid and expensive (with 12-month tie-in clauses) and the solutions can feel a bit outdated and ‘old school’.

Why I love HR

I’ve always wanted to work in HR. Ever since I can remember! I was greatly inspired by my Dad, who was a small business owner and had a range of challenges with his team members.

I strongly believe that GREAT HR is the key to business success. Research has proven that employees can strongly influence customer satisfaction and profit, in both a positive and negative way.

If you can hire and keep talented people, build a unified team that work together to achieve a common goal, and nip problems in the bud before they get out of hand, you’re going to be winning in business.

My Experience

  • During my career, I’ve worked for a variety of companies, in very senior HR roles, including Global HR Director for Pearson Technology and Head of HR at Argos.
  • I’ve done pretty much everything from helping hundreds of people be more confident and effective at managing people, improving employee engagement levels, solving complex problems like absence, conflict and poor performance as well as identifying how companies can work more effectively and become more profitable (yes really, that’s the role of a HR Director).
  • I’ve led a team of 25 people myself, so I know first-hand how rewarding, yet challenging people management can be.
  • I have a Masters in HR Management and a degree in Business Studies, and I’m fellows accredited by the CIPD (which basically means I’ve proven myself as an HR Director).

When I’m not working…

You’ll either find me at a coffee shop with a good book or magazine, at the gym or spending quality time with my friends and family. I’m also a big advocate of flexible working.

I’d love to help you with your HR challenges.
