For the forseeable future, I intend to continue to work within the performance sector, mixing voluntary and paid work alongside continuing to help others as a PANDA Associate Coach. From February 2002 to May 2011 I started two degrees in science/engineering, though I never graduated, going to work for greenroom (a Manchester venue supporting, developing & presenting new performance from 1983 to 2011) as Administrator & Box Office Supervisor initially, and then Programme Co-ordinator in June 2004. I’ve been a Board Member of Reckless Sleepers since June 2006 – an established experimental theatre company based in Nottingham & Belgium. Previously, I worked in various roles in the hotel trade for seven years.


I continue to develop in my coaching career, and more recently have started to facilitate PANDA Action Learning Sets also.

Imagine a perfectly clear mirror, just for you. A mirror that reflects back what’s inside that you can’t otherwise see. A mirror that filters out distractions to help guide you to discover the solutions within. That mirror is coaching.
