Keith strongly believes that everyone has the capacity to change our world for the better and we each have a duty to pay it forward to support future generations. He has a lifelong passion for learning and continuous improvement and is motivated by helping people to realise their potential as leaders in society.
A Chartered Mechanical Engineer by background, Keith has acquired over 20 years of operational leadership experience in the Aerospace, Defence, Energy and Marine sectors. In that time his curiosity about the world has driven him to test himself in a variety of different contexts and to learn quickly from his mistakes. He has used his skills to design, deliver and evaluate new products involving complex systems as well as large-scale Leadership Development and Strategic Change Programmes. In doing so, he has applied Agile, Lean and Six Sigma methodologies to engage teams in continuous improvement and, in adapting these principles to solve specific problems, has evolved the state of the art in several areas.
Keith has an MBA from the Open University, is a Fellow of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) and is a Leadership Fellow at the College of St George in Windsor. In his spare time Keith enjoys spending time with his family, playing football and golf and has recently developed a passion for baking sourdough bread.
Angeline has a track record of delivering sustainable improvements in business performance in senior leadership roles. She is passionate about pushing for greater depth of understanding on the importance of mindset, systems thinking and behaviours on outcomes. She believes this is key to unlocking the potential for sustainable change even when faced with the most complex of challenges based on her personal experience of leading high-profile programmes within a global aerospace engine manufacturer. She is a practical, hands on leader with a reputation for building and maintaining collaborative relationships at all levels in an organisation and motivating cross functional and globally dispersed teams.
Having started her career in finance in a large blue-chip manufacturer, Angeline quickly established she wanted to understand more about how things were made and how value was created. She returned to full time education and graduated with a degree in Manufacturing Engineering from Nottingham Trent University. As part of her studies she had her first taste of systems thinking, change management and the application of lean principles. Her dissertation explored the differences, similarities and critical success factors of various published approaches to improve business performance. These themes and a desire to continue to learn have continued to be a golden thread that has weaved through Angeline’s career through increasingly influential roles in finance, manufacturing, supply chain management and programme portfolio management.
Angeline enjoys spending time in the fresh air and open skies of the beautiful blustery North Norfolk coast. She also shares a passion for watching a wide range of theatre with her husband and teenage daughter.
Kier is our first Apprentice and is currently undergoing a Level Three Lean Six-Sigma Apprenticeship. He aspires to move up through the higher levels of continuous improvements in the near future and is also eager to bring value to a quality-focused team whilst continuing with his education.
Kier has recently graduated from Durham sixth form where he studied Business, ICT and Financial studies. Since then he has gained experience in the production sector as an assembly line worker and the customer support sector as a business call centre agent. In that time his curiosity for business and problem solving grew, which has driven his passion towards continuous improvement. In his time with us Kier has supported several projects, traveling within Europe to support his apprenticeship and accelerate his learning, which have all included different aspects of Agile, Lean and Six Sigma methodologies.
In his spare time Kier enjoys going out with friends, playing golf, watching football and is also a keen skier in the winter months.
David has been delivering Lean training and leadership coaching for the past 25 years. He is a firm believer that the right combination of a good reliable process supported by good motivated people will create the right environment for any business to succeed. Having worked all over the world David knows the importance of the role that culture plays in a business and prides himself in how this has influenced his approach to training and coaching for performance.
David spent over 12 years working as an Engineer in the Army, which gave him a technical foundation and his first practical experience in leading a team. David joined Toyota in its infancy in the UK and was heavily involved in the start-up, supporting early process design and improvement activity for the body shop. In his final 5 years David moved into training and was one of the first certified Master trainers outside of Japan.
More recently David has delivered Leadership Academy training with Mercedes Benz, Rolls-Royce, and other blue-chip companies working across Europe, South Africa, Russia, North America and Australia. He has trained and coached leaders in industries such as Banking, Automotive, Rail, Pharmaceuticals, Mining and Food Production. He is a firm believer that everyone wants to do a good job but as leaders we don’t always create the conditions that would make it simple or easy for our teams to deliver excellence.
