'​My passion for innovation comes from four places:

First, education and training.  I created learning programmes and advice and guidance systems during my 7 years as a classroom teacher, programme manager for distance learning degrees, and development manager for community online learning hubs.​

Second, youth charity. I created quality assurance systems, health, learning, employability and workforce development programmes, worked with organisations to develop new practice models and services, wrote, funded and spoke about approaches to charity, housing and young people over 15 years at Foyer Federation.

Third, asset-based thinking. I've researched and developed asset-based approaches since 2005, including the introduction of Advantaged Thinking, various programme innovations and quality assurance frameworks, and my new Assetspots model.

​​Fourth, the university of life. I was the remedial child with a stammer who grew up to get a Masters degree and travel the world talking about ideas. I've never stopped learning from amazing people of every age and culture.​

These are the four dimensions I've used to identify the 'creative chillies' that generate hot ideas for social change – the skills and processes that fire up inspiration into action. I’ve bottled these ingredients into InspireChilli  so other people can learn how to use them tooWhen you hire or buy InspireChilli, it’s not just the experience you’re getting - it’s all the ingredients.​​

I believe that Innovation makes people work better when innovation works better for people.  InspireChilli gives you the source for innovation through our unique inspirations approach - and that’s what makes the experience different.

Why not see for yourself?'
