I’m Anna, an independent management consultant specialising in organisational culture, change management, leadership development, performance and every aspect of company communication. I’m in business to change business for the better – with simple approaches to the organisational challenges that all companies face. I’m the very proud owner of Jester Consulting which offers a full range of management consulting services.
The most effective approach to landing a business strategy, creating a high performance culture, being a brilliant leader and communicating with impact is one which engages the audience emotionally. After all, ‘we are creatures of emotion, not logic’ (Dale Carnegie). It’s the reason I take a Felt Consultancy© approach to every business challenge. Find out more about that here.
“Anna is one of those special kinds of people who gets it first time. She drives ideas to successful completion and has a unique ability to connect with people at all levels. She does what any trusted advisor does – thinks strategically, challenges, then delivers her promises.”

I’m passionate about living and working in the Midlands and service clients across the region. I also work with organisations in London and across the UK (and sometimes the world!), on a short or long term basis, in both a consultant capacity and as an extension of the in-house team.
I’m not an agency – if you hire me, you get me. I don’t claim to be able to do everything. Instead I work with a network of tried and tested individuals and agencies, who I’m really proud to recommend, if we need them, to help us deliver your programmes on the ground.
“Anna delivers real value to the organisations she works with, with unlimited energy and enthusiasm plus an eye for quality and detail. An ability to engage at all levels of an organisation is a rare quality but one that Anna genuinely posses and uses to great effect. A true professional with intellect and truly great people skills.”
Emotions (whether Emotional Intelligence, managing emotions, or emotional engagement of others) forms the foundation of my management consultancy approach. I call this Felt Consulting©.
We don’t always remember exactly what people say to us but we always remember how they made us feel. In fact, it is that, above all else, which directs how we react, what we do next and how we pass it on to others.
“When dealing with people, let us remember we are not dealing with creatures of logic but emotion.”
“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
Whether it’s in the context of culture reform, change management, leadership development or strategic development, Jestology is an integral part of my consultancy approach. Successful companies are fun to work for and companies that are fun to work for enjoy happy, engaged, productive employees too.
