Jenny Charteris

Jenny is a specialist in organisational change and inter-organisational collaboration, working primarily with leaders facing complex challenges in demanding and politically sensitive contexts.

Following an early career in business process transformation, she now works with newly-merged organisations, strategic alliances and other collaborative ventures in the utilities, government, civil engineering and defence sectors. She facilitates the development of top teams and boards to ensure they are aligned and fit to lead the change process, designing large change programmes, and coaching leaders and their teams to deliver them. Clients particularly value her ability to create conversations that get quickly to the real issues, and to bring energy and momentum to teams facing tough issues by using simple but powerful tools.

Jenny has an MBA from Durham and before moving into consultancy in the early 1990s was Head of Performance Improvement in retail financial services, worked in the civil engineering sector and ran her own small manufacturing business in South Africa.

Jenny is a visiting lecturer for Cranfield at the Defence Academy in Shrivenham and for Newcastle University Business School's Executive MBA programme.

Jenny is trained in BPS Level A and B, and is qualified to use Birkman, Myers Briggs Type Indicator, 16PF and Hogan.
