I’m passionate about using 19 years of experience working in global financial companies such as UBS, Barclays, Royal Bank of Scotland, Royal Bank of Canada, Schroders and Deutsche Bank to make work a better place for everyone. Logic dictates that by pointing out and raising awareness of the stupid, annoying, dysfunctional, crappy things that people do then less people will do them, and by pointing out the funny, positive, creative, good stuff then more people will do that. I mean who doesn’t want to have more fun at work?
I currently find myself in the role of coach and co-founder of a small start up business – Humble Associates. Through group, 1-1 and team coaching my mission is to help other humans understand and navigate business agility and leadership in the complex world of knowledge work.
I work with everyone from Scrum team members to Managing Directors, so regardless of where you are in your career feel free to reach out to me.
This website was original my blog, and through my writing I aim to highlight and poke fun out of the dysfunctional ways in which we communicate and behave at work. Remind you of best practices, give you ideas to experiment with and challenge you to take action to improve. To inspire you to be a better version of yourself. To make you chuckle. To give you the occasional kick up the arse. They often include fart jokes too.
So – are you ready to stop colluding with all the corporate bullsh!t that goes on and to do something to stop it?

To find out more about Noel then read on…
Noel originally trained as a primary school teacher, but upon leaving university realised this was not his vocation in life. After working in the fitness industry he moved into the corporate world where he has now worked for 19 years (and is still trying to find his vocation in life).
When not working, exercising, learning or blogging Noel enjoys spending time with his wife, 3 kids and 2 dogs.
NB. Writing about myself in the third person? Now that’s dysfunctional…
