I help people manage without hierarchy

I host training workshops with organisations that want to be more collaborative and less hierarchical. Find out more.

I believe the most effective way to change a team culture is through gentle sustained pressure, so I also provide coaching services to people that want a buddy to check in with regularly. Get in touch if you'd like to discuss either of these options.

Here's how to find me


I used to make noise machines

They're all open source; you can find the blueprints on my old blog.
