“Tell you about Elevate?

Well, as someone who values purpose and advancement greatly I wish to help people grow, so I set up Elevate in 2004 to serve people in business through learning and development initiatives.”

We believe that if you’re purposeful about your leadership and life at work, you will achieve greater potential and be more fulfilled than if you’re not. We care about the growth and the fulfilment, and either or both of these are the platform for every piece of work we accept.

“Purposeful.” What do I mean?

It’s about connecting with what really matters for you, for the individuals you work with and of course for your business. We invite you to recognise it, pay attention to it and let it energise. This is a simple concept which provides a rich narrative, tremendous learning and people and organisational change. We’re proud of these dimensions which become the basis of all partnerships.

How we work

I partner with a small team of delivery consultants and coaches when the programme or project demands it. When engaging with you we have five core beliefs underpinning our work.


These founding principles ensure people thrive…

Core Belief 1

There is no such thing as standing still, you choose to grow or shrink.

We help you grow…

Core Belief 2

In order for change to occur you are asking the adult brain to do what it finds most difficult, firstly, think and then create new patterns.

We help you think,
you deliver new patterns.

Core Belief 3

There are two key support systems required for people to grow..
The head needs mental stimulation and challenge.
The heart needs emotional connection and belonging.

We have the know-how to enable this nourishment.


Core Belief 4

One size does not fit all. Every transition has its own unique elements.

We create a solution that fits you.

Core Belief 5

Change doesn’t happen by focusing on behaviours alone.  Enduring change at some point will connect to your values and beliefs.

We’re not afraid to go there.
