Crafting careers, mastering mindset, co-creating impact

Research-adjacent consultancy, training and facilitation

Research has never been an easy road, but it can be hugely rewarding one. Think of me as the superhero sidekick on your research journey.

I work with individuals and research organisations to help them…

  • Manage career conundrums and develop skills and strengths
  • Build personal and professional resilience
  • Co-create and share your research through events and resources

I’m a research-adjacent consultant, trainer and facilitator. I’m also the host of the Research Adjacent podcast.

I’ve been working in and around research organisations for over 20 years especially in engagement, events, education and communications.

I can help you change the world – even if that just means changing your own little corner of it!

Research Adjacent is a podcast that shines a light on the research-adjacent people, processes, and skills that go into making research successful. I’m talking about public engagement, knowledge exchange, outreach, project management, policy, research communications, publishing, funding, events, presenting, collaboration, facilitation, and the rest. New episode every other Tuesday.
