As an experienced and accomplished HR Professional, I have over 26 years commercial experience. In my last corporate role I was the HR Director for a global organisation of 80,000 employees worldwide and 7,500 employees in the UK. I was responsible for the HR Shared Services (including payroll) in the UK, Ireland and Netherlands with the Heads of HR Operations across the globe in 70 countries reporting to me. My remit was systemisation, globalisation and consistency of policy and processes across the globe.
Earlier in my career, while working for smaller UK based financial services organisation, I held dual senior HR and operational roles which enabled me to develop a commercial approach to HR matters.
Alongside being an ActionCOACH I run a HR Consultancy business, KClear HR, which which supports SME businesses with the full range of HR services. KClear HR also supports the senior management and HR teams in larger corporates with ad hoc projects, HR strategy or sensitive HR issues.
I am a Chartered Member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel & Development and I hold a green belt in lean six sigma.
I strongly believe that everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and respect. The right people can become the wrong people if placed into the wrong jobs or employer/employee values become misaligned. How you deal with these situations has a massive impact on personal and business reputation. I pride myself in guiding businesses and employees through difficult situations to ensure it ends with dignity in place.

It was so simple and made so much sense! I am the World's most UNorganised person and I never thought I would have time to do the course, let alone put actions into place.Julia Clifford - iCAN Health and Fitness
It gives me clarity, focus and a plan on what needs doing to move the business forward towards my goals. It's great fun and the other people in the coaching group are such a support.Jill Davies - Granite 5
Working with ActionCOACH has had a huge impact on me and my business. My coach doesn't tell me what to do, but has a canny way of asking the right questions that lead me to make my own decisions. I find the opinion of someone outside of my business very useful to bounce new ideas off and i now have clearly defined goals with a route map on how to achieve them. Thank you. I wish I'd met you 20 years ago!Paul Youngs - Expert Print Management Ltd
