Consultancy & workshops
As a human behaviour specialist and a trained social anthropologist, I have 20+ years’ consultancy experience, supporting corporations and national non-profits to engage their audiences and drive change and growth.
I work closely with stakeholders from C-suite to end-users, capturing insight and developing products and programmes that motivate positive change.
I develop and deliver:
Executive and personal coaching
Consultancy and workshops for leaders and teams
From qualitative research with stakeholders through strategy and on to product creation and dissemination, I take on specific communications and engagement projects. I’m particularly skilled in diagnosing systemic and cultural barriers and opportunities. I define messages and products that persuade audiences and enable organisations and teams to meet their goals.
As a consultant I often work end-to-end, translating insight into strategy before developing processes and products that achieve lasting results.

“Tillie is a brilliant advisor, colleague and coach. She was given the brief to research a concept and approach to respond to the lack of engagement we identified amongst clinicians. What we got far exceeded that.
Tillie approached the project as an ethnographic researcher, ‘lifting the lid’ of our organisation and tackling the obstacles to our project – as she sensitively gathered insight and imagined possible solutions. She conducted interviews with members of staff and took on real responsibility to ensure that those staff felt that our end product was something they contributed towards. Tillie went above and beyond to accommodate me and my requirements when our scope changed too.
Tillie, on a personal note, is sharp, professional and cuts through complexity and bureaucracy effortlessly. I loved working with her because while she built immediate rapport with each stakeholder group, she was an antidote to the cultural challenges and the inertia the NHS can face. Her style and approach is warm, never judgmental. If you are considering tackling a change-fatigued environment, or you are beginning to tackle long-standing cultural barriers and need to refresh your thinking, some time with Tillie is worth its weight in gold.”
Jack Tabner, Executive Director of Transformation and IT, NHS Foundation Trust
“As an insurance company really pushing market boundaries, we needed a tone of voice and visual brand that made clear how disruptive our offer is. Tillie got under the skin of our business strategy, our audience and our offer extremely rapidly, and produced some very insightful work as a result. Her collaborative approach and exceptional workshops got us to exactly where we needed to be at a particular moment in our evolution. I’d be delighted to work with Tillie again.”
Kate Whitelock, Head of Marketing, YuLife, Life Insurance
“The Women in the Workforce workshop was an incredible opportunity to connect with other women in our corporation – such an atmosphere of vulnerability and growth. The facilitators were engaging and the content was rich. Every word was intentional and useful. I know I will become better as a woman in both my professional and personal life as a result.”

“The Thought Leadership workshop was engaging, informative and well delivered. The tasks were thought-provoking and encouraged discussion by the group. The training was relevant and used our own existing materials to make the exercises bespoke.”
Technical Director, Richter Global
“Definitely one of the best training days. It was paced well and Tillie made sure all content was relevant to our specific organisation and the roles of participants. The structure and content were excellent – so were the visuals and handouts. I’d like to offer it to more people across the Trust.”
Katie Maughan, Head of Corporate Partnerships, The Prince’s Trust, UK
“Working with Tillie was a hugely rewarding experience for my whole team. Her experience shone through in her understanding of our cause, values and how we position ourselves in our communications. This meant we were able to start from a shared understanding and really use the time to build on our existing work. I would heartily recommend working with Tillie.”
