Consultancy FAQs:

What’s the process for working together?

If you are interested in my bespoke consultancy services, we will arrange an initial call to explore how I can help and if we are the right fit for one another. Upon instruction, the consultancy begins with an insight session, which is an in-depth insight and listening session which is vital for anti-racism work. This typically takes place over two half days to meet with key staff, understand your organisation, explore current needs, challenges and concerns related to anti-racism and areas for improvement. After which, you will receive a proposal of short, medium and long term opportunities for further investment tailored to your specific emerging needs.

Can you provide a one-off workshop?

I do not offer stand alone anti-racism workshops. From my experience I have found that it is impossible to get to the essence of anti-racism in one workshop. I am driven to ensure that my services are impactful and genuinely help resolve organisational and cultural problems. For that reason I have based my services on what I know to be most effective. The work that breeds the biggest transformation and sustainable change is the process of individual self-enquiry and ongoing consultancy. To enquire about my consultancy services click here.

How is the consultancy delivered?

The consultancy is generally delivered via a face to face meeting at your office location. However this can be adapted to suit the specific circumstances and virtual services are also offered.

Do you travel abroad for consultancy?

If we are the right fit for one another, with pleasure. Subject to travel, accommodation and subsistence fees

What kind of organisations do you consult for?

I work with a wide range of companies and organisations  who are courageous leaders with a common trait of a strong desire for global change and a curiosity to do better.

Do you work with small businesses / self employed people?

Yes, I offer bespoke consultancy and I offer a course specifically for the self employed and small businesses with fewer than 5 employees.
