Self description

Female , 59

I'm a lawyer who has worked in lots of different industries currently working in education.

Two grown up kids, lots of animals and a small farm in Kent.

I like getting things to work whether that's running large companies, planning new schools or building my house.

Life experiences

qualifying as lawyer

My legal experience has given me a good grounding to work in a number of industries

was CEO for exam board

Good practical knowledge of courses and optiond for 14 to 19 year olds

turning around failing business

Any business needs to focus on 4 things money, people, customers and systems. I have a lot of experience in putting plans in place to turn around failing businesses

Why mentor on horsesmouth?

I think I have a lot of knowledge and experience which would be useful to share with young people. It is very easy for my children to gain advice and support through the networks our family has. It wasn't easy at all for me to do that. Perhaps it is more difficult for others. E mentoring is brilliant system to pass on knowledge and experience

I am very lucky to have found your website. Recently I wrote about a problem which I face very often.... There were 10 responses from 10 mentors. They have really explained to me and made me understand that I do not have any problem. Your services are wonderful and I am very much thankful to all of you.

I have been mentoring on HM for 18 months. I really enjoy it & hopefully I am helping other people. Recently I posted my my first 'request for a mentor'. I have been completely bowled over by the response. So many people taking their time & making the effort to offer constructive advice in a friendly polite manner. For me it completely validates the intent behind HM. It reminds me how many good, helpful people there are out there. Thanks for providing such a great service.
'I called out for mentor assistance a week or so ago.

I have been inundated with unbelievably helpful replies, and now have a toolkit to draw on to start turning around behaviours and mind-sets that have been detrimental in my life.

I just want to thank Horsesmouth and all the amazing people who reached out to me.  Each and every one of you has given me something to think about, and some have given me heaps of material with which to start working.  Now I need to do the work! Thank you so much!'
