These days Steve works pro bono for a variety of charities operating via the Worshipful Company of Management Consultants where I recently completed my year as MASTER. Steve first got involved with the Company in 2012 having decided to stop work full time. He started doing pro bono advisory work for Charities etc. Then moved into a wider range of activities, learning more about livery Companies and the Civic City. Steve explains: WCoMC, is the 105th City Livery Company, comprises Freemen and Liverymen who are (or have been) Management Consultants. Its three core interests are Education – sharing knowledge and helping to develop the profession; Fellowship – the Company offers a varied menu of social events where networking (and sometimes access to the Company’s excellent wine cellar) is highly valued; and Philanthropy. The latter has always been a key feature of the City Livery, and today WCoMC contributes well in excess of £1m pa to charitable endeavours. The main activity is “giving something back” by providing consulting services to charities or not for profit organisations on a pro bono basis. This includes mentoring of Chief Executives.
Steve has 30 years’ experience as a management consultant, specialising in programme management and strategic change with a financial management bias. A former Director of PricewaterhouseCoopers, he has worked extensively in both Private & Public sectors and more recently in the voluntary sector. Using this broad experience Steve is able to provide coaching and mentoring support for senior managers. More recently this has focused on the third (charity) and education sectors. Steve is an authority on programme management and business change is a credited contributor to the OGC publication “Managing Successful Programmes”.
