Find out more about Hannah & her team of trusted sidekicks
I’m the founding director at sidekick. You can read more about me here. My secret weapon is momentum. I love to use a Strengths-based lens to get projects and people moving. I also know I can’t do everything! This fact is why I have a fantastic alliance of individuals working alongside me to bring out the best in each of you.
Laura is the EA to Hannah. Which translates into excellent organiser, admin slayer, comms prioritiser and juggler of many varied balls. Laura is genuinely delightful, always ready to work hard with a smile on her face. If you’ve not chatted with her yet, I hope you get to do so soon because she is a ray of sunshine on a dreary day. Laura is passionate about purpose, and believes that the clearer our sense of personal mission is; the better our mental health and well-being.
Zo is our Influence & Engagement Lead. Zo is a wonderful calming influence on the team. She thinks down the line, questions what we are doing, brings a fresh perspective and big vision. She’s getting married this year, has an incredible voice, and is learning to love Pax. She is expanding my thinking, gets the vision, embodies the values and is a breath of fresh air.
James is our COO: Chief of Other (Stuff No One Else Wants to do). James is an actual gift. Not only is he one of the most efficient individuals I know, he is also fully committed and full of encouragement. James turns ideas into reality, streamlines processes and makes things work beautifully. I know that if I ask James to do something, it’ll be both done in a jiffy and done better than I could have imagined. The state of my desktop and the number of tabs I leave open causes James to have heart palpitations. Sorry James.
Liz is cool, calm and collected. She’s wise and experienced, and I always feel safe knowing she is involved in a project. As soon as you get to work with Liz, you will understand why people feel comfortable sharing honest self-reflections with her. Liz is an employee engagement expert, experienced with Gallup’s products: Q12, BP10 and CliftonStrengths. If you want guidance on how to build your team – Liz is your secret weapon. She’s eager to share the skills and experience she gained during her 15-year tenure at Mars (the company, not the planet).
Justin has a distinctive coaching style. Full of passion, zest and know-how, Justin is not only a Strengths expert; he’s a personal finance guru and sustainability sage. Also known as ‘The Wild Trainer’, Justin is the one you go to, to help you take a new perspective on your challenges. His nature is equally disarming as it is encouraging. A man of many talents, Justin is a trained accountant and had a fantastic career with IBM before flying the nest.
Fraser brings confidence, clarity and courage to you and your project. He is a master inquirer and is the secret weapon of choice for you if you want to get to the root of your problem, quickly. As well as being part of the sidekick alliance, Fraser is one of the directors of his family-owned Michelin star restaurant and the vice-chair of a global medical relief charity. Previous to this, he worked tirelessly to find the best people for the right roles in global development organisations.
