Tom specialises in creating space for reflection.
He is a freelance leadership coach, consultant and facilitator, as well as a founder and social entrepreneur working across the cultural and voluntary sectors. He works particularly with leaders at times of transition. He is a coach, advisor and facilitator for Clore Leadership, leads People United’s Arts and Kindness Mentoring Programme and acts as a sounding board for those involved in creative social change.
Previously Tom was the founder and CEO of two national charities; Music for Change (promoting understanding between cultures through music) and People United (how participatory arts can grow kindness and social change). Starting both from scratch, he built these arts organisations by being an enthusiastic generalist and with a belief in the power of creativity in bringing people together.
Other things he has got up to include: working as strategic manager for the Royal Opera House (2006-2007), writing the first education pack on Tibet (1995-1997) and promoting artists from around the world as founder of the voluntary initiative Under One Sky (1993-1997). He is a fellow of the RSA and a member of the European Mentoring and Coaching Council and British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
