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 – get in touch to check my availability.

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. To check my availability, 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.

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.

Julie fostered a very safe atmosphere of positivity during the ‘Resolutions Retreat’ I attended, and she really helped me to think about my goals, aspirations, and why this is my career. The conversations were lively but incredibly respectful – not always something I’m used to at work. It was really important to get together with like-minded women, of different ages, experience, and backgrounds, and really heartening to know we often share similar stories. I was especially interested in the match or mismatch with an ‘institutional message’, and how to navigate that in terms of my own ethics. The most important thing though, was that Julie helped us all explore different perspectives, and learn new things about ourselves.
