Following an early career in Chartered Accountancy, Janet has been working in, and consulting to, organisations for more than thirty years. She was the co-founder and Managing Director of the award-winning change agency InterAction and went on to create Connexions Performance Coaching at the beginning of 2008.  Connexions is a company which focuses on leadership performance and the impact of leaders on their organisation.  Janet is currently a tutor on the Cambridge University Institute for Sustainability Leadership’s High Impact Leadership programme.

Experiences and passions

Janet has successfully coached and facilitated leaders all over the world.  Believing that culture really does eat strategy for breakfast, her special passions are for ethical and purpose led organisations, sustainability, collaboration,  inclusion and recognition.  She has designed and delivered successful leadership development programmes in many cultures, including Europe, Africa, USA, Middle East, and Indonesia and successfully coached and/or delivered leadership development to some of the most deeply cynical and demanding groups of leaders, winning respect from CEO’s, six-figure-earning sales executives, investment bankers, and senior ranking officers in the military.   She spent fourteen years as Managing Director of InterAction, a change agency which she co-founded and led to great success.  In 2006, InterAction won the Guardian Award for the Best Change Project, for the hugely successful Living Service project for Tesco.

Janet’s work with individuals and teams is outstanding. All the feedback after trainings she has given has been 10/10, proving she has the skills to communicate meaningfully across a whole range of different people. Her tools and methodology really work, and she has a great ability to look at a situation or organisation and analyse exactly what it needs. She has done work for me/my teams which is quite varied, but all giving excellent results. I highly recommend her.
