HR & People Consulting

Small to medium sized business owners usually cannot afford HR staff or don't see how it could add profitability to their longer team goals. This dilemma, to invest or not invest, is a hard and difficult one for most smaller businesses.

However, creating an HR strategy or adding the right HR services to your business will do one or two things (usually, both);

  • It will increase your overall sales and profitability by ensuring you have the right engagement, people skills, incentives or team dynamics to deliver your business and financial goals. 
  • It will reduce your existing spend by ensuring that all of your current people related costs are delivering the right outcomes and results.

And you don’t have to hire HR staff, or create your own HR strategy. There is another way.
You can use me to create an HR strategy and or provide you with the HR services that will help you deliver your short or long term goals. 

As a global HR Executive, I have worked across the USA, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany, Australia and New Zealand. I have managed teams in these countries and have a track record of launching capability improvement programs, culture change initiatives, and leadership programs.

Now, I’m available as a consultant for small to medium-sized businesses looking for cost-effective HR solutions. 

Here’s how I can help you maximise your current or future people capability: 

  • Consulting with or mentoring your existing HR staff to help them create a longer term strategic HR plan for your business
