About me

Helping leaders and teams amplify social impact
and accelerate systems change

Hello, I'm Natalie

My work is driven by a vision for a more equitable world, where everyone can fulfil their potential, and where we live with care for each other and the planet. I’m passionate about supporting people and organisations working for this.

During my 15+ years working in this space, I’ve seen how challenging it can be; the pressure to achieve so much with such limited resources, to constantly demonstrate ‘value for money’, the need for resilience and the loneliness of leadership.

Drawing on the skills and experience I’ve gained through diverse roles focused on social change, I work in and at the intersections of three areas:

  • Strategy & leadership development
  • Learning design & delivery
  • Evaluation & impact management

How I got here

Early in my career, working in the charity sector, I co-designed courses on strategic giving. This involved listening to social impact leaders, understanding different approaches to driving change and developing a systems-thinking mindset.

Curious about the societal role of businesses, next I worked on leadership development projects designed to be mutually beneficial for corporates and charity partners. An important aspect of this work was assessing its effectiveness at achieving a range of outcomes for partners and participants.

Excited by the potential for startups established with social good in mind from the very beginning, I then moved into the tech-for-good space. Here, I supported teams to embed ‘impact management’ into their operations, so that as their organisations grow so too will their ability to create and measure impact.

When I started freelancing in 2019, naturally I wanted to help more organisations maximise their impact. Training as a coach in the years since has helped me hone a skillset that’s become integral to my work, which now brings together threads from across my career:

  • Strategic-thinking and a systems mindset.
  • Understanding leadership & supporting leaders.
  • Designing effective learning experiences.
  • Defining and measuring outcomes.
  • Building learning cultures.

Working for impact

Some of the things I’m proud to have achieved include:

  • Co-Leading the Climate Safe Lending Fellowship, equipping banking intrapreneurs with the leadership and systems-change skills to drive greater bank climate action.
  • Creating and embedding an impact measurement framework for social mobility focused coaching training startup Circl.
  • Delivering workshops on programmes run by the Social Tech Trust, Microsoft and Mayor of London, among others.
  • Facilitating impact-focused events with diverse groups, in boardrooms, community centres, schools and prisons, as a Senior Manager at Three Hands.
  • Planning courses in strategic philanthropy in the UK, Europe and South America, focused on themes ranging from reducing reoffending to environmental conservation, for the Charities Aid Foundation and Institute for Philanthropy.
  • Completing a psychology-focused coaching diploma and gaining accreditation with the International Coaching Federation (ICF).
  • Training aspiring coaches as a co-lead trainer for the MOE Foundation.
  • Climbing Yr Wyddfa (Mount Snowdon) as a sighted guide with a group of visually impaired hikers.
