Project Description


Ellie Herriot

I am a facilitator at byrne·dean and deliver a range of training sessions all over the world.

I  am passionate about developing awareness and behaviours which allow employees and organisations to reach their full potential. I have experience running a huge range of sessions from all staff behavioural to leadership workshops for more senior staff and more procedural sessions.  I am able to balance my sessions between technical knowledge and real lived experience due to a varied career. As well as experience as a practising employment lawyer in top city law firms, I have worked as an in house lawyer and in HR within a financial institution. I therefore know what it is like to be a client and someone who has to deliver to clients, I understand the pressures and challenges of these environments and use this to make sessions come to life. I have also worked in HR at the University of Cambridge and taught law at a secondary school both of which honed my ability to answer a difficult question!

I have had my challenges during my working life including a period of post-natal depression and a serious accident which initially left me unable to walk and in need of a number of surgeries. This means I am resilient and understanding and can teach other people how to deal with their own life challenges and how to support team members.

I have always been interested in how human beings interact with each other and am grateful that this is the focus of my career.
