How I work:
My aim is to enable business owners to do business not HR so we provide jargon free, practical HR solutions that improve efficiency and performance. Our flexible HR Support services from pay as you go to retained allow business owners more time to concentrate on building their business, knowing their staff are productive.

By using effective tools like DISC I help you to understand how you and your teams can work together more effectively by understanding the different behaviour styles that make up the workplace.

Interesting facts about me:
• I play hockey and netball (anything team related!)
• I love travelling and visiting new places
• I once stayed at the Tower of London!

Theresa was an instrumental resource for our business. Her strategic thinking, in-depth knowledge of all things HR related and her refreshingly human approach to her field allowed us to scale our business with our engaged and driven team. From our people strategy to our day-to-day HR policies and systems and from recruitment and on boarding to improving retention and everything in-between, Theresa spearheaded and transformed our HR function.

Theresa is a talented and knowledgeable HR professional and was an absolute pleasure to work with. She would be an asset to any business looking to put their people front and centre.
