Becky is an engagement and change specialist with a range of research and organisational development skills, and a focus on enabling the health and wellbeing of communities.
Her passion is supporting transformational change that happens with, and comes from, the people at its heart. At SK she has worked on a number of projects including: the development of a simple and pragmatic tool to help NHS England’s Vanguards understand their readiness for change; an engagement of staff, leaders and patients in the scoping of the new national NHS safety investigation function; and a collaborative event for Imperial College Health Partners to explore and build collective momentum around improving patient safety.
Alongside her work for SK, Becky is based at the Bromley by Bow Centre and Health Partnership where she is delivering a two-year developmental evaluation of their grassroots approach to unleashing healthy communities. As learning lead for the project, Becky is particularly focused on embedding learning from the research into practice.
Previously, Becky worked for three years in The King’s Fund’s Leadership and Organisational Development team and for ten years within a number of social research consultancies (TNS BMRB, Opinion Leader, Frank Research). Specialising in qualitative and participatory methods, Becky has provided insight and engagement support to government departments, health bodies, charities and the private sector including a large number of public and professional consultations such as the Darzi and Marmot Reviews.
Outside work, Becky is a board member of Healthwatch Hackney and was for five years a Dementia Befriender for Age UK. She’s a qualified yoga instructor and Myers Briggs practitioner, and a big fan wild camping and cycling (although not often all at the same time!)
