I worked as a human resources and change management consultant on three continents over the past 30 years. I loved the interaction and I loved the problem-solving challenges. I became very good at writing training material and facilitating meetings and learning events.
I now work as a freelance writer. Some of it is ghost writing - mostly website content but sometimes well-researched and written articles, reports and blogs, and at times victim statements and defense statements for folk who get summonsed to small claims court. In this latter matter I don't purport to be a lawyer, but what I do do well is apply my coaching and interest-based facilitation skills to help you say what your story is so that when you present it to the lawyer they can quickly find what they're looking for.
I also work as a mediator - in labour and community disputes. My special area of interest is disputes in small family-owned businesses.
