TEDxFormbyPointWomen - 8th December 2018

Tuesday 15th January 2019

I was thrilled to be selected to do a TEDx talk at the Tate Gallery, Royal Albert Dock, Liverpool. I realised one of my life's ambitions to do a TED talk. It was a most inspirational event with some fantastic fellow speakers. It was the first TEDx event to be held in the North West and I was really proud to be one of the speakers. "A successful person is one who can lay firm foundations with the bricks others have thrown at them." - David Brinkley. Valuable lessons in building resilience!

Black Leadership Conference - Liverpool Guild of Students

Tuesday 15th January 2019

I had the privilege of being a guest speaker and delivering a workshop at the inaugural Black Leadership Conference hosted by the Liverpool Guild of Students. The title of my workshop was 'Changing the System from Within', showcasing how even small cogs can make huge changes within an organisation, drawing upon my 25 year policing experiences. As long as you have the correct strategy, you can effect change in the culture of an organisation. It was an absolute pleasure to meet the next generation of leaders, and see their passion and drive for the future.

Black History Month Celebration

Tuesday 2nd October 2018

To continue the celebration of Black History month, I will be sharing some history of black pioneers through the ages, often forgotten about and very rarely taught in our schools. I will be concentrating particularly on black women who are overwhelmingly under-represented in many organisations today, particularly in senior positions. An often unheard and unseen talented minority. #keepraceontheagenda #inspiration #inclusion #blackhistory #equalityanddiversity Today is Amina Queen of Zaria (c. 1533 - c. 1610) 16th century warrior Queen of present-day Nigeria. She was best known for her impressive military skills and her ability to lead the cavalry. She conquered much of North Africa for the Hausa people during her 34-year reign. Accredited as a brilliant architect who constructed strong earthen walls around the…

October is Black History Month - Let's Celebrate!

Monday 1st October 2018

Today is the commencement of Black History month. I would like to celebrate this month by sharing some history of black pioneers through the ages, often forgotten about and very rarely taught in our schools. I will be concentrating particularly on black women who are overwhelmingly under-represented in many organisations today, particularly in senior positions. An often unheard and unseen talented minority. Today is Amanirenas (40 BC - 10 AD) Warrior Queen of the powerful Nubian region of Kush which is present day Sudan. Referred to as "Candace" in some European literature. She fought alongside her husband and son in a war against a larger and more powerful rival, the Roman Empire. She lost an eye during battle which made her…

My New Book!!!

Tuesday 10th July 2018

I'm really proud to have published my new book, a research publication entitled "The Impact of Values, Bias & Leadership on BME Recruitment in the Police". As a black police officer with 25 years service, I could sense the culture and barriers to BME people joining the service and achieving senior positions within the service. The barriers were unwritten, unspoken but very real. Therefore it was of great interest to research this phenomenon within my own police force and to put some science behind the culture and barriers I sensed. I am very proud to have achieved this and produce this research to inform police organisations, leaders and HR professionals and help overcome these barriers to recruitment, retention and progression of…
