About Annie

Annie joined The Project Academy shortly after it was founded in 2007 having worked with Paul and Trevor on a business improvement project for Costain. As well as bringing experience as a business leader (specialising in organisational performance, business transformation and HR) for a number of well known UK and International companies, Annie also brings with her over 20 years experience as a performance consultant.

At The Project Academy Annie specialises in coaching senior professionals on the Cabinet Office’s Project Leadership Programme. Participants have said that she brings intelligence, perception, calmness and humour to her work and an ability to help them sort through complex issues and find elegant strategies and a simple way forward that really work!
The breadth of Annie’s experience, combined with her passion for exploring new ideas in the application of neuroscience and its impact on performance, has enabled her to engage with organisations global and local, private, public and charitable.

Some of her consulting highlights include:

  • Delivering change programmes for BP Oil and Deloitte Consulting – enabling them to re-align their businesses to new market conditions
  • Coaching business leaders at Unilever, Motorola and AstraZeneca – equipping them to raise performance levels across their units
  • Designing and delivering online leadership coaching programmes – enabling managers to rethink how they approach current challenges and find creative ways to raise performance

Annie is comfortable with high levels of complexity and ambiguity, but her background in science also helps her appreciate the need many clients have for clarity and certainty. They appreciate her ability to help them articulate their priorities and find creative ways to achieve results beyond their expectations.

Annie’s style can be summed up in 5 words – integrity, clarity, insight, challenge and grace.

Accreditations include 20 years as a Master Practitioner of Neuro-linguistic Programming.
