Do you want to start a raw food business but feel frustrated, confused and overwhelmed with where to start?
Do you have an idea for your existing raw food business and need to gain clarity on your options and an action plan for growth?
I completely understand both of these scenarios having been in both of these situations myself. There are so many different directions which you can take your business idea that sometimes the choice can seem baffling, so we put it on hold and it stops us from progressing.
A short period of coaching can help give new insights, provide advice and support, keep us focussed and help move forward dramatically.

Why work with me?
Before I became a chef, I spent 25 years in organisational development – coaching hundreds of people in creative businesses to realise their dreams and make them vibrant and profitable. I didn’t leave those skills behind when I developed Deliciously Raw.
Deliciously Raw hasn’t been easy. I’ve had my fair share of knocks and I’ve worked hard. I’ve learned some tough (and expensive) lessons which means that I have much to share so you don’t have to figure these things out on your own which will save you time and money.
What you might not know about me is that I am a qualified coach and change practitioner, I hold a Masters Degree in Change Agent Skills and Strategies (coaching and facilitation) from the University of Surrey, a Certified Cultural Transformation Tools Consultant™, hold the Four Fields Foundation Qualification in Transactional Analysis and I have a Certificate in Writing Life Narratives from University of Oxford. I have coaching frameworks and skills built on sound academic foundations.
A lifelong foodie, I trained as a Chef with Matthew Kenney Culinary in the US (previously named 105 degrees), and I am a Qualified Chef in Advanced Raw and Living Cuisine. I worked at the Gothic in Maine after my training. I hold a Diploma in Advanced Vegan Cookery from Demuths. (yes I can cook with heat too!)
I have been lucky to secure articles in national magazines including Prima and Woman Magazine. My work was hailed as ‘confection perfection’ in British Vogue. I’ve appeared on the regional BBC networks and recently made a TV show with Grave Productions called 3 chefs, showing how delicious raw food can really be. I’ve got over my fear of public writing and speaking.
My Deliciously Raw training courses were shortlisted to the last 6 for the Looking to Cook Awards: Best Short Cookery Course in the UK and Ireland. I was in good company with Jamie Oliver on the shortlist too.
I received the Raw Food Hero Platinum Award 2015 from Imperfectly Natural.
I’ve learned a thing or two about selling raw food products – how to do it and how not to. I’ve had stands selling at many regional and national shows including V Delicious at Kensington Olympia and The Ideal Home Christmas Show at Earls Court. I have a Deliciously Raw Deli business supplying companies and independent customers with both fresh, frozen and dehydrated products. I can help with logistics, packaging and all the rules about labelling too.
I’ve developed menus for health food businesses and delivery services. I’ve set up professional kitchens with my own hands and spec’d kitchens for builders. I’ve developed ‘white label’ products – some of which are now for sale in the famous Luxury department store, Harrods.
I’ve developed Deliciously Raw over the last few years – a raw food cookery school with LIVE hands on one day to five day programmes and online courses. I’m an experienced trainer and know how to run and structure a course. I have a state of the art raw food studio which is a development kitchen with all the latest equipment including a paco-jet and antigriddle. I can pretty much make anything ‘raw,’ but not only that – so it tastes great.
I’ve developed numerous 8 course raw tasting menus for pop ups and other events and had the pleasure of being a personal chef for private fine dining clients. I know how to put together exciting, stimulating and engaging menus which capture the imagination.
Now I am offering my combined skills as a chef and foodie with my skills as a coach and organisational consultant to help you thrive.
