My consultation journey

There might be many of you whom I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting during my time at the Consultation Institute. I have attended dozens of training courses, sector-related events and of course our own successful conferences, and at these events I met hundreds of people who were deeply passionate about the work that they do and who believe, rightly so, that it is their role to make sure that people from all walks of life have the opportunity to contribute their part to democracy. What a pleasure and honour it has been to work with all of you during these last 3,5 years. I shall be leaving tCI today to join another institute, the Chartered Institute of Internal Auditors in London.

During my time with tCI I have seen the organisation undergone radical but extremely successful changes, we have improved our professional services to best reflect your needs, we have built a new website that is much more focussed on content, showing you the latest developments in this exciting industry. We have established successful relationships with foreign partners and are leading the way in this country to create more awareness of the Aarhus Convention. All of this wouldn’t have been possible without the help of you, our members and supporters, who push us to our best to establish consultation best practice in all sectors. It has been an absolute pleasure working with all of you and I hope you will keep supporting the Institute and its fantastic staff in the future. A special thanks goes out to Rhion Jones for being a wonderful mentor to me, and I’m sure to the wider consultation community, throughout these years. Until we meet again!
