Welcome to our showcase page. I am delighted to take up the role of Chair of CIPD Manchester and to work alongside a great group of fellow CIPD members, volunteering as committee members and ambassadors for the branch. We are here to serve our profession and the community of Manchester.
I bring to the role 30 years of HR experience, firstly in-house with several charities and then for the past 20 years running my L&D consultancy. I am passionate about L&D and the difference it can make to the performance and effectiveness of organisations.
I have been involved with CIPD Manchester for many years – initially as the Public Policy Lead and then more recently as the L&D Lead. I have also initiated work around flexible working, hosted a fringe event at CIPD’s ACE Conference 2019 on Modern Slavery and led last year’s social media campaign raising awareness of neurodiversity at work.
This is a hugely challenging time for all as HR professionals and individuals – with COVID-19, the most significant economic challenges of our lifetime, Brexit and the need to create a much fairer and more inclusive society.
We have a lot to do as a profession, and I am looking forward to working with you, as we step up to these challenges together.
We look forward to hearing from you.
