Author: Catastrophe & Systemic Change: Learning from the Grenfell Tower Fire and Other Disasters

Presenter: Catastrophe: The Podcast

From 2011 – 2014 I lived in a beautiful apartment on the 21st floor of Grenfell Tower. On the 14th June 2017 I sat on my bed and watched it burn. Seven of my former neighbours died. I vowed to do what it takes to ensure we learn.

Professionally I partner organisations in high hazard industries to develop the leadership and organisational capability to prevent catastrophic events.

My commitment is to open dialogues and enquiries that will help us to collectively understand how to be more effective at dealing with the systemic issues at play. Whilst prompted by Grenfell the application is far broader.

Please get in touch to explore working together such as speaking at conferences, media appearences or writing an article.

I am a leaseholder in the (in)famous modernist building in North Kensington – Trellick Tower.

My husband, Keith is co-chair of the Trellick Tower Residents Association, working to find new ways of working with the RBKC Council with tenants voices at its core.
