The Art of Work Logo

As a journalist, I’ve interviewed Nobel laureates, rock stars, artists, scientists and politicians. As a coach, I believe we all have the potential to excel at work we find fulfilling. I also believe that when we challenge ourselves, in our life and work, that's when we find the most joy.


“The expression or application of human creative skills and imagination”


“The application of effort to a purpose, especially as a means of earning a living”

The Art of Work:

a mix of both that makes life richer, deeper, better

What can coaching do for you?

Coaching is a process that inspires people to make the professional and personal changes they want to make. It can help you gain fresh perspectives on your work and life, find out what’s keeping you stuck and develop the confidence and clarity you need to move forward.

I won’t tell you what to do. I’ll ask you powerful questions and take you through a process that can be life-changing, but you’ll be the one in the driving seat. My aim, with every client, is to build a creative partnership that brings energy, spark and challenge.



How do we find fulfilment as we pay the bills? In this podcast, which developed out of my previous podcast, Work Interrupted, I talk to inspirational guests about how they have managed to build a work life that brings some meaning, fun – and even joy.
