Graeme began his career in HR back in the late ‘80s but tended to lean to the positive side of the role, delivering training and coaching staff, supporting leaders in their roles. His training specialty is management/leadership, difficult conversations, coaching, mentoring and feedback skills.
Graeme is a true example of an individual who has been inspired by a great teacher. When he left school, Graeme attended a training course and was struck by the very different approach to learning and course delivery. As a trainer, he strongly believes that you get to shape the type of day the learners have, and you have to make it fun and inspiring or you’re just wasting everyone’s time.
For Graeme, collaboration is key. He gets people talking, presenting them with the theory and then asking them what they think. Graeme is a firm believer that it is not his job to tell people what to think or do – just to help them to think differently.
A ‘fairly typical bloke’, Graeme enjoys music, festivals, gigs, sport, cycling a and walking, taking part in some fairly epic walks including the Coast to Coast walk from the Lake District to Whitby and the old border walk between England and Wales, Offa’s Dyke Path.
