As chief people and culture officer for the London-based Dorchester Collection, me and my team are responsible for all aspects of human resources, learning and development, employee & guest engagement, innovation and corporate responsibility, working with all functions in the business to ensure our people are the cornerstone of every business decision.
I'm a well rounded professional with an exceptional background in people leadership, organisational development, people practices, education, development and operations; and global experience within diverse cultures and attitudes. I lead the business by thoughtfully challenging the status quo, disrupting traditional ways of thinking, showing common ground where needed and building long term sustainable people and strategic initiatives.
I have more than 25 years of operations and people resources experience, a proven success record in people management, operational performance, human resources, organisational development, finance, change management, employee relations, grounded in a holistic approach to employee and guest engagement within all constituents of the business. I have knowledge and experience operating and managing in several countries including Canada, United States, France, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Japan, China and the United Kingdom.
