View Company Profile


I have worked in HR within North West agencies for many years, and have been with Mando since 2015 as HR and Wellbeing Lead.

In 2018 I reduced my hours with Mando, to establish my wellbeing business Dewa Consulting.  Dewa provides training and workshops around wellbeing – menopause, alcohol awareness, stress, sleep, mental health and more.  I am a GCologist (helping individuals and teams to harness energy for impact, through data) an Emotional Culture Deck practitioner (allowing companies to improve culture) and a personal and professional Executive coach, supporting primarily mid career women to find their mojo. I am also a trainer for Drinkaware, Burnt Cheft Project, Ripple and Chasing the Stigma.  I also worked as a volunteer Counsellor with Childline and Shout the Crisis Text line.

Working in both an agency and as a trainer means that I have immense empathy in the training room for Managers and Staff (being both myself) and also can bring my wellbeing knowledge into Mando to support the wellbeing of the team

I am delighted to be Co-Chair of the BIMA Wellbeing Committee, helping to raise awareness around both positive and poor mental health and to support the BIMA community.  I also Co-Chair the HR Peer Network and sit on the BIMA North Council.
