  • expert facilitation (of meetings, workshops, strategy development days, etc)

Rosanne is passionate about helping organisations and individuals reach their full potential. She has substantial experience of training and development at all stages, including training needs analysis, designing and delivering training interventions and training evaluation against business outcomes and performance.

Before starting her own consultancy practice in 2002, Rosanne had HR roles at Bedfordshire County Council, British Waterways and, for ten years, at Kodak, where as an HR business partner within a senior management team she provided a comprehensive range of HR services at a strategic and operational level to over 700 employees. This generalist role encompassed resourcing, compensation, industrial relations and employee relations. Rosanne then moved into Kodak’s management consultancy service where she designed and delivered management and personal development programmes, facilitated team meetings and events, and coached teams and individuals to maximise their performance.

As a Certified Positive Intelligence Coach, Rosanne is also able to offer a 6-week Mental Fitness Coaching programme to individuals and teams as a foundation to 1:1 coaching.
