Rob Chappell is our Managing Director and one of the original co-designers of the MiRo tool. He is a psychotherapist by trade but has not practiced for some time, choosing instead to put his time into MiRo and for the past ten years, into managing a small charity, working with young people in Swindon. He's also a trainer and consultant specialising in the psychology of work. The rest of the time, he can be found doing ham-fisted carpentry, sailing the waters of the Kennet and Avon canal with his family or climbing up a mountain without them.
Our resident technologist is Richard Spence. Richard has over 20 years experience in software development, both for mobile phone and sever. He has worked for pretty much everyone, from great British blue chips to tiny start-ups. When he is not in the computer mines he runs a Guitar and Ukulele stall at the Glastonbury festival, the local “Fat Dads” football league and quaffs the odd pint of his favourite Stroud Brewery Ale.
Gareth Brown is an experienced Business Consultant and Coach and a qualified MiRo practitioner and now a Director in Red Admiral Learning. Heading up the marketing function for MiRo, he is passionate about what we do and having introduced it into many organisations, he has seen at first hand the many benefits it can bring. Rugby is his other great passion and although he is now far too old to play he still enjoys coaching and watching his sons play. Oh and he’s also Welsh and very passionate about that too. Gareth sent us this selfie from what looks like Barbados or perhaps a shopping centre somewhere in the midlands.
Our 'Man in the North', Jeremy Lewis is an Advanced MiRo Practitioner and trains MiRo Practitioners. Having spent several years as an internal and external organisation development specialist, he now runs his own consulting, coaching and facilitation practice. He lives on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales in Ilkley and when not consulting, coaching or facilitating (or indeed training MiRo Practitioners) he can be found walking on Ilkley's famous moor with his family or in one of Ilkley's fine hostelries, drinking something pale and artisanal that was brewed in Yorkshire.
Mike Fisher is an experienced HR, Organisational Development and Change Management executive with over 20 years experience of managing people programmes across multiple sectors. He has led large-scale people initiatives with FTSE 100 businesses of £650m revenue plus. Mike co-designed the MiRo assessment and co-founded the company. He is a family man and occasionally paints terrible pictures. He currently works at PwC but still finds time to help us as an adviser.
