About Us

The team at Carrie Birmingham Consult are specialists offering clients ideas, insight and support. We passionately believe in helping people to be the best they can be. We encourage you to bring your whole self to work – not just your work persona – and so we do the same. Our team has expertise and experience and we will partner with you to safely navigate whatever you are facing.

Straight talking and informal with a great sense of humour, Carrie herself is driven and insightful. Her previous years as HR Director at The Sun and The Times gave her the experience and tenacity to see through the messiest, most turbulent of issues, instigating the best solutions to both resolve the problems now and for the longer term.

Carrie’s qualifications include:

  • Masters in Organisational and People change
  • Qualified coach, facilitator and gestalt practitioner, helping to navigate complex human dynamics
  • Qualified in the use of diagnostic tools (MBTI, OPQ, Voiceprint) to enable personal awareness
  • NLP business practitioner using somatics to develop leadership in both body and mind
  • CIPD registered.

When leaders are feeling the pressure of a complex situation during times of change and are unable to cope, the ripple effects can have a wide reaching impact. Utilising her skills, qualifications and experience, Carrie guides you to build self-awareness, which helps you to find the best way forward. Carrie’s kind and challenging approach helps you to learn how to resolve those messy problems.

You need to be brave, though, as Carrie will invite you to experiment during the process.

A commercial and pragmatic thinker, clients describe Carrie as passionate, honest, clear thinking and fun. She’s also robust and energetic, guiding you through complex situations with ease. Carrie’s sense of humour means that she enjoys having an inappropriate giggle with friends, family and clients!

During her downtime, Carrie enjoys going camping, yoga and walking her dogs.

“Carrie is an empathetic, hard-working and passionate manager of change in tough organisations and environments. We worked together for three years on the digitisation of News UK’s commercial team. It wouldn’t have been delivered on time and under budget without her.”
Paul Hayes – Former MD Commercial, News UK
