Welcome

Have you landed on this page because you:

  • want to enhance your organisation’s equality, inclusion and diversity?
  • want to develop yourself or your team professionally through coaching?
  • want to find someone to help you with research or evaluation?

If the answer is yes to any or all of the above, GREAT – I can help you!

To introduce myself, I set up my business in 2017, after over fourteen years working as an academic. I draw on my academic expertise and experience to offer training and consultancy around gender and LGBT equality and inclusion to organisations and groups in the private, public or voluntary sector.

I gained a coaching qualification in 2017 and offer professional-development coaching within organisations as well as to individuals.

I offer a range of consultancy, too, from impact evaluation work to advisory roles. I am based in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, UK but happily work more widely.

Please have a look around the website. If you have any queries or are interested in working together, please get in touch. I look forward to our conversation!

Never doubt that a small group of committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.

I’ve been working with Julie since 2013 and over those five years I’ve been impressed by her thoughtful and positive approach to each project she’s been involved with, whatever her role. Julie has a strong commitment to, and expertise in equality, diversity and inclusion – she has a high level of knowledge and understanding, and applies the principles to the work she undertakes. Julie is particularly well-versed in gender and LGBT equality; I’ve seen her address these in a wide range of formal and informal learning situations. She is good at listening, paying attention to different suggestions and always treats people respectfully. Julie is a great colleague with genuine warmth and integrity.

I really value working with Julie, and I’m happy to recommend her – I’m certainly looking forward to our next joint project!

Julie has contributed to The Fed’s work, delivering consultation focus groups for our work with the NHS, designing and delivering learning experiences for students and teachers for our work with the Government Equalities Office.  Her contributions have been knowledgeable, engaging, and challenging when necessary.  Her style is calm and relaxed but focused and she connects and inspires participants.

Evaluations have been very positive and clients have come back for more.
