As a bubbly, kind and fierce emotional intelligence 

professional trainer, coach and facilitator,

I help people, teams and organisations

connect deeply with themselves, and others.


Why The Blue Flamingo?


Did you know that flamingo’s feathers are pink because the algae, mollusks, crustaceans they eat contain carotene? The right nutrition seems to be essential for these beautiful animals to be at their best. 

I nurture people, teams and organisations

to become more deeply connected  

with themselves and others alike.

The workshops and sessions I deliver are:

  • filled with positive, kind and strong energy 
  • experiential, engaging and highly interactive
  • designed from the heart

Why The Blue Flamingo?


Blue represents Blue Sky Thinking and is linked to Positive Psychology.

I believe the world will be a better place if we take a hopeful, positive approach that allows possibilities to emerge. 

Blue Sky Thinking enables people, managers and leaders to embrace other people's strengths (rather than focussing on their weakness), to build strong interpersonal relationships based on trust and compassion and to work collaboratively towards a shared purpose. All of which form the essence of emotional Intelligence.
