Independent expert support for Councillors to Hire, Inspire and Retire their CEO

As a leader in Local Government, I bring experience in management, politics and community engagement to my consultancy work with councils. I have a deep commitment to gender equality and believe that positive politics and productive CEO-Councillor partnerships deliver better outcomes for where we live, work and play.
