Since 2015 he has worked for a bespoke consultancy helping small and large organisations be more effective by providing practical approaches to handling major change. Prior to this he worked in the agribusiness sector as a Global Organisational Development Lead for Syngenta supporting organisation wide change and transformation. Before moving into OD Neil was a senior leader in agricultural R&D spending 18 years working for multi-national businesses, including 8 years spent in Switzerland.
Neil came across Thrive in 2018 when he was looking for a local charity to support that matched his interest and personal experience in how working with plants can bring significant health benefits. He joined Thrive as a Saturday volunteer at Trunkwell and has found that not only has it allowed him to give something back to the community but that the Thrive community is a place that supports him.
