A few


Alison Hall – ex Acting Director and Deputy Director of HR and OD at Great Ormond Street Hospital NHS Trust

We worked together at Guy’s & St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust

Sheila brought fresh, innovative, thinking to my team at GSTT, working with staff in Recruitment to significantly reduce our time to  hire which contributed to us winning the NHS Streamlining London Award in that area in 2016.  She also delivered a number of corporate transformation projects, including an in-depth review of equality and diversity issues across the Trust.  Her review highlighted areas which required action, proposed interventions to address these, and used data to shatter incorrect assumptions on the part of senior managers enabling them to focus their limited resources on key areas.

We worked together at Defra

Sheila was my Interim Deputy Director in Defra HR and I learnt a huge amount from working to her. She led the design and transformation of Defra’s HR function, creating a quality service proposition that really delivered results. Sheila brought fresh, credible perspectives into the business and provided a real focus and energy to drive projects forward. She is credible working with stakeholders, including at the most senior and sophisticated levels, but is also great to work for and really champions the development of her team.

We worked together at Guy’s & St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust

Working with Sheila helped me see the power of data in really understanding what is happening with the people in my organisation and enabled me to take decisions which made a real difference.  Using data helped us triple our B5 nursing job offer rate in the course of just 6 months. I now try to integrate data driven decision making into all my work and that of my team.

We worked together at The Law Society

I worked directly with Sheila whilst at The Law Society.  It was a pleasure to work with her.  She is supportive, generous with her expertise and provides constructive challenge when appropriate which I particularly valued.

 We worked together at KCTMO

Sheila used her extensive knowledge and strong interpersonal skills to provide strategic direction to People and Organisational Development at KCTMO. She quickly analysed the organisation’s needs and effortlessly secured the buy-in of key stakeholders to the strategy by applying her calm, logical persuasion and influencing skills. Sheila is a consummate professional who inspires her managers by empowering and supporting them to deliver the best possible HR service. Her management style is open and transparent providing praise and developmental feedback when appropriate.
