Consultancy for Tech Companies needing a little help with agile, management and HR

CULTIVATED MANAGEMENT is a resource for amazing Managers

My mission is to educate, train and inspire technologists to become the best version of themselves through cultivating their skills and experiences whilst achieving outstanding business results.

I offer practical, inspiring, experience-based solutions to challenging problems facing the modern technology workplace.  At the heart of the Cultivated Management approach are concepts of:

  • Outstanding communication and clarity of purpose.
  • A focus on discovering and removing friction that is holding you and your organisation back.
  • A focus on cultivating behaviours that drive positive change and build a winning culture (Culture is nothing more than group habits – what people do each day).
  • A need to treat people like people.
  • Being disciplined in following proven and high performing processes that work.
  • Underpinning all of this is the need for good management who inspire, lead and provide clarity.

Cultivated Management’s training and consulting is applicable to anyone making change, or developing their career. I keep things simple and easy to understand so that you, and your team, can be implementing growth plans quickly. My approach is direct and honest, yet caring and diplomatic.

I customize training to your specific needs through my business focused consulting, training and keynote speaking. I offer public workshops, books and presentations for individuals also.
