Biography

Currently Head of Change at one of the world’s largest retailers, Christopher has spent the past two decades mastering the complexity of change and how to manage change successfully. The thing is, the way organizations manage change has got overly complicated and often out of hand – Textbooks, extensive spreadsheets, expensive courses, accreditations, painstaking governance, reporting, etc etc etc, so many tick box exercises. Unsurprisingly 2/3 of change initiatives are deemed a failure. Christopher recognized that 80% of the value added comes from 20% of the effort. So, let’s drill into that 20% together and “demystify change!”

“Ah, you’re the change guy!”

If only there was a pound for every time Christopher has heard that in his career. Since graduating 20 years ago, Christopher has been busy in the change space. Unaware at the time, he was somewhat of a trailblazer in the Change Management domain, obsessed with the human centric, psychological nature of change. Pushing himself ever since, to operate at the ‘bleeding edge’ of the change sphere.

Christopher has successfully delivered over 200 projects and programs at some of the world’s largest blue-chip companies across the energy, retail, financial and professional service sectors. While taking on some of the broadest and toughest change leadership posts out there, 92% of initiatives Christopher has led either met or exceeded adoption, engagement, cost, and timings targets.

While running his own change management consulting business, Christopher started featuring in countless publications and outlets sharing my thoughts on the subject he loves. Whether it’s writing, guest speaking, working for himself or the world’s largest employers, his task has always been the same; drive change into the hearts and minds of his audience.

Christopher has since become recognized as a thought leader on all things change and thrive out of sharing his insights with the broader change community. This is through his talks, workshops and more recently, Christopher is speaking with publishers about his first book!

Christopher helps leaders, colleagues and clients orchestrate the human side of change. A natural leader, who’s adaptive and personable style engages staff and delivers positive business results. Christopher has extensive experience in nurturing high performing project and change delivery teams across multiple territories and diverse disciplines. Enthused by influencing and implementing change competencies with stakeholders from a wide variety of professional and cultural backgrounds. Bringing original ideas, creativity, and initiative to drive ambitious transformation and cultural change efforts in a coherent, sustainable manner. Christopher is especially passionate about bringing fresh change management thinking to the far corners of the globe and always keeping things simple.
