I am an Employment solicitor and a Managing Legal Trainer specialising in legal training and workplace mediation in the employment team.
My role as a Managing Legal Trainer involves training clients in all aspects of employment law, highlighting developments in the law and providing some practical guidance on how to handle the day-to-day issues which arise from an HR or a manager's perspective.
I conduct HR training sessions on all aspects of employment law. The training I provide is tailored to the client's particular needs and can be aimed at small groups of HR personnel or to larger audiences. I also run our popular Employment Law Academy at our London offices, providing HR professionals of different levels with an overview of the main aspects of employment law and keeping them up to date on new laws coming in.
Leadership and Manager Training
I run training sessions for leaders and managers in many companies highlighting relevant employment law issues, particularly around anti-sexual harassment and bullying, diversity and unconscious bias. I am also a Mental Health First Aider and run sessions to help managers deal with issues around mental health. My training sessions are designed to encourage discussion, debate and interaction, to raise the awareness of the legal issues and the impact for employees in the workplace.
I am a CEDR accredited mediator and am often asked by clients to carry out workplace mediations where disputes have arisen between employees or between management and a team member. I also carry out training sessions on mediation skills for HR professionals and managers.
