I’m Julie Drybrough, founder of fuchsiablue. Organisational consultant, coach, facilitator and generally curious.Working with heart, passion, love, all that good stuff; I ask questions and listen a lot for a living. With a wide client base, I’m lucky enough to work across UK and Europe.
fuchsiablue is about a desire to deliver effective, action orientated solutions for working with people in organisations. It’s about generating clear, connected, open conversations in teams and across divisions or departments; striving to create real opportunities for individuals to develop skills, capability and capacity. It’s about creating demonstrable change through conversations.
The name fuchsiablue came about in response to a starting off my working life in an operational context, where Learning and Development was seen to be “pink and fluffy”. I used to say, I’m not pink & fluffy, I’m blue and practical. The same stands today – I work in a way that encourages relationships, openness and dialogue… and there is an absolute purpose to the client work I undertake.
Basically, I encourage people talk & learn. My approach is driven by passion for the working with people and an understanding of working with complexity in organisations and teams.
Chartered MCIPD (Fellowship pending) with over 12 years experience in HR/ OD across the public and private sector. I’m currently studying an MSc in Organisational Change at Ashridge Business School.
My coaching approach is increasingly grounded in Gestalt methodologies and I am part of a supervision group to ensure the continuous development of my practice.
Newer areas of interest include effective dialogue in organisations and how to generate spaces for different ways of talking.
My favourite things include: good, connected conversation, tasty food, well-balanced wine & moving about via feet, water or bike.
