More about you (Short Bio or any other details you’d like people to know)
As a part-time visual artist and creative writer with almost 30 years management experience in the health and social care sector, I have a keen interest in the impact of creativity on health and wellbeing, and a person's capacity to be innovative in business.
As a published author, and exhibiting artist, I have direct and personal experience of the benefits of creative activity, and the processes that can be used to unlock creativity. There are many reasons why people choose to learn more about their creativity. Sometimes they're driven by a desire to approach work tasks in a different way, or sometimes they wish to 'be more artistic' or to write a book, or invent something the world has not yet seen. Whatever the motivation, creativity certainly seems to boost personal wellbeing, and enhance performance at work.
I am a founding member of The Coaching and Mentoring Network, established in 1999. Through this network, I have offered leadership development, coaching and mentoring to people who wish to increase their effectiveness in their jobs. And in recent years, I have focused on coaching people who wish to unlock their creativity as a means to achieving their goals. I offer this coaching through small group workshops, and on a one-to-one basis.
What I’d like from the AMED network is…
Networking, contacts, opportunity to offer creativity coaching
What do you do for your own development?
Networking, reading, research, delivering workshops, allowing my frameworks to be challenged and expanded
