Helping working class and introverted professionals thrive.


Hi, I’m Iesha.

Thanks for dropping by.


I have to be honest with you, I need to update my website. It’s on the list of things to do but in the meantime here’s a quick summary.


I’m a writer, speaker and communications specialist.


I share info to help working class and introverted professionals get ahead. I’m also very passionate about leaders’ mental health.


I grew up in a working class family and my parents didn’t go to university. I’ve been an engineer and maths teacher in some of England’s most disadvantaged communities. I transitioned to research and documentary story telling before switching to influencing government practice and policy in the UK. I’ve held various leadership and board level positions and written and spoken on BBC, Guardian and other national media.
