Over the last twenty years I have explored the many facets of leadership with thousands of
people. My work has included teaching, facilitating mentoring and coaching.
As I continue to reduce the amount I do, my work is now focused around two distinct areas:
Teaching the principles of authentic leadership to younger leaders, inspiring and enabling
them to find their voice and build a better world.
Working with more senior leaders to build an Inspire & Enable leadership culture in teams
and organisations that will unleash potential and deliver amazing results.
I facilitate a Facebook group called Lead! Community, a place where like-minded leaders can
share their challenges and experiences, seek help and advice, network, build alliances and
share and discuss leadership material.
I run public leadership programmes based on my book, ‘Lead Like Mary.’ These are delivered
remotely, over a six week period, exploring leadership principles and Mary’s traits.
Participants are sent material weekly, including a podcast and reflective exercises, to work
through in their own time and then join fellow participants for a one hour discussion
exploring the week’s material.
I chair a charity, the Osprey Leadership Foundation, established by Dr Tim Mackrill. We
work with younger people from different cultures and contrasting backgrounds to inspire
them about the natural world and enable them to develop into conservation leaders making
a difference locally, nationally and internationally.
We run school educational programmes, a Becoming a Conservation Leader programme and
Evolving Conservation Leaders, an innovative cohort of conservationists early in their
careers, providing networking, development and mentoring opportunities.

I have a number of both voluntary and paid mentoring and coaching relationships, choosing
to work primarily with younger authentic leaders who want to make a difference to the
world around them. Every assignment is different and all are rewarding.
