Workshops and Schedules

Please take a look at my calendar or drop me a line via email or the contact form. We can then discuss your specific needs. I try to make our first interactions face to face if possible, but this is not an absolute necessity. We can plan a meeting at a suitable location, plan to block out my calendar for workshops and consulting and discuss your specific requirements. For coaching only, please use the contact forms or email on

All discussions are strictly confidential and personal, business data will be respected at all times and will not be shared with a third party.

In the event you wish to proceed, I will forward a simple agreement in order to protect all parties. We can also agree a suitable NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement) as appropriate.

If at any stage, either party feels that there may be a conflict of interest, they should declare it and defer / stop the work or session.
