Georgina is a Learning & Development Consultant at =mc. She specialises in management development and performance management. Having previously worked in fast paced environments in the commercial world, she has several years’ experience in the sector. Her experience includes working as an HR generalist, managing volunteers and volunteering herself. Before working at =mc, Georgina provided training, advice and guidance to all levels of management and staff. She also supported the delivery of various projects and organisational change programmes.
Her current and recent projects include:
Working with Evolve Housing + Support, Surrey Police and Versus Arthritis to develop and run various workshops covering: leadership skills, coaching, feedback, challenging conversations, enabling performance and getting the best from teams.
In addition, Georgina coaches individuals to overcome current challenges and has worked with individuals and groups from a wide range of third sector organisations also including the London Borough of Hackney, The Roundhouse, The RSC, The Challenge, Central St Martins, UCL, World Cancer Research Fund and WWF to develop their management skills at various levels.
I am currently focusing on upskilling managers at various levels to enhance their ability to successfully manage themselves, their teams and projects. This includes a range of learning approaches such as practical training programmes and 1:1 coaching. I have developed and facilitated feedback training for various organisations, delivering this alongside key Management Skills, Project Management and Time Management skills training. As well as the organisations above, I have been working with MS Society, Reading University, Friends of the Earth, Action Against Hunger and Marie Curie.
I have hosted multiple very successful open programme ‘pop ups’ which have had a wide range of delegates and organisations in attendance. These are a real pleasure for me due to the variety of delegates and organisations in attendance. These programmes also give delegates great networking opportunities as well as the opportunity to share the challenges that are currently facing their organisations and the sector. Delegates share how they tackle these concerns such as: funding uncertainties in the face of Brexit and the need to diversify income streams; doing more with less to get greater results; the impact on the third sector of evolving public services; decreasing trust from the public for the ethical sector; and of course the impact of GDPR legislation.
Before =mc I worked in Management, L&D and HR, both in the commercial and third sectors. I provided support to staff and managers on all employment issues, identifying the best solutions in all circumstances. Throughout my career I have achieved the most satisfaction supporting others to improve both professionally and personally. This has drawn me back in to learning and development. Having volunteered extensively oversees and in the UK for third sector organisations, I am inspired by, and really passionate about this sector.
During my career I have had the pleasure to develop and facilitate numerous bespoke learning interventions. A particular focus has been improving organisational effectiveness on team away days. During sessions teams successfully identified ways to improve working, creating shared visions and aligning individual goals with strategic objectives.
I have upskilled managers to lead large change projects with confidence and facilitate team cohesion and effective performance at all times. In addition to interventions increasing organisational effectiveness and efficiency, I facilitated project teams in matrix structures, preventing conflict in highly pressured environments.
I am passionate about the huge value of timely and effective training interventions. I understand the enormous impact that individual managers have on individual and organisational performance. I therefore also train and coach managers to improve their interpersonal skills, overall effectiveness, team and individual performance.
It gives me great satisfaction to see people learn practical tools and techniques that enable them to achieve better results each and every day.Contact Georgina Wright
