As a trained agricultural economist with over 20 years of experience in supporting businesses through their challenges, I have built a wealth of knowledge in this field.
As an independent consultant, I work closely with farming businesses, charities, and families to help them add value to their operations.
My work covers a range of challenges, including diversifying income streams, managing family issues, planning for succession, developing strategic plans, and securing grant funding.
My current and recent clients include the Family Mediation Trust, Royal Norfolk Agricultural Association, Department for Education, A D Harvey, and the Prince's Charitable Trust. I was also awarded a Nuffield Farming Scholarship, sponsored by the Royal Norfolk Agricultural Association, which allowed me to study the processes and systems adopted by the next generation of farmers.
In addition to my consulting work, I have served as a magistrate for over 16 years and sit on the Family Mediation Standards Board for the Family Mediation Council. I also act as a Trustee for the Otter Trust and am a member of Anglia Rural Consultants.
