About Cindy


I am passionate about the natural world and believe that reconnecting with nature teaches us how to reconnect back with ourselves and others.

I am also passionate about business and have worked in business for over 30 years. We are currently going through a major shift in how business is done, and I believe this shift will realign business to the more ethical and vital service to society that it once was; business can be a huge force for good.

Business career and consulting
I have had a long career in business spanning 30 years. I am a business, marketing and psychology consultant for organisations and a business author. My background is in strategy, product and service innovation, marketing, business development, behaviour change & leadership.

My career has spanned engineering, heading R&D for part of Panavision, running automotive component factories for Smiths Industries and leading marketing and business development for Capgemini. I have created and brought to market many leading-edge products and services and have been personally responsible for sales of many millions of pounds.

I understand the stresses of being a board director, managing large teams and running a profit and loss centre. I also understand the pressures of being an entrepreneur as I have been running my business consultancy since 2003.
