About Me

Ever since my HR 'spark' was lit, I have worked as a HR professional and most recently as a HR Director.   Through my experience I've learnt that businesses need to become more human focussed  and work has to have meaning for people so I set up 720 People and Culture.  I work with companies who want to take a different approach to creating great employee experiences.

  I work with leaders to be the catalyst for developing, changing and growing their business through a well thought through People and Culture strategy that is human focussed.  Change can be uncomfortable and unfamiliar so I work on a 1 - 1 or group level to ensure the solutions work for your business.  I have deep knowledge of working within the design led and creative industries as well as the public sector, start up environments and large global organisations.

As a certified Coaching Professional, I coach my clients in a way that utilises their innate knowledge to solve problems and create solutions that work.  If you have any questions about my methods, or would like to schedule a consultation, please get in touch today.

Vanessa has been instrumental in initiating a number of key strategies that have trained, empowered and supported our staff during an important transition period to Employee Ownership. Vanessa is exceptionally perceptive and her ability to quickly assess the challenges and opportunities within the practice and to propose strategies that will support staff and strengthen our business has been greatly appreciated at all levels.

Nicola Hewes, Regional Partner, Purcell Architecture Ltd

Vanessa is an inspirational People leader, with her knowledge and experience, but more powerfully, her ability to challenge the status quo and pinpoint what needs to change and gets to the point!

She is an asset to any organisation, with a good sense of humour and tenacity to identify and deliver goals.

Charlotte Nelmes, Head of HR, Purcell Architecture Ltd

Vanessa joined Zipcar UK as Head of HR shortly after the company had been acquired and during her tenure the Company was acquired again. Two integrations in short order present unique challenges for senior managers and Vanessa's skills and style lent themselves extremely well to the situations faced. I very much enjoyed working with Vanessa at Zipcar.
