Employee Engagement

WIBN Groups


Hello there.
I’m new to this working of networking, so please be gentle with me!
I’ve just set up my own freelance consultancy business, Parkslife, with a focus on employee-engagement. And what’s that? It’s helping businesses to get the best from their workforce in a positive, fun and motivational way to enhance workplace happiness and, ultimately, boost the bottom line.
I left John Lewis through redundancy in September 2017 after 15 years with the Partnership, the world’s biggest co-owned business. I’m a journalist by trade and, at John Lewis, I led a nationwide network of employee-engagement magazines, social media channels and intranet platforms.
They enabled and encouraged staff (Partners) to have a voice in their business, feel more engaged, be more happy and, well, work harder to ensure success. Win-win.
Communication and employee-engagement are intrinsically linked for me, so I feel my journalism background - spanning 30 years across local and national media, training and developing journalists - gives me a unique set of tools.
I can offer a bespoke service, tailored to your needs, designed to meet your objectives, providing practical and tangible solutions.
