Our Team

Toby Harding MEng (Hons)

An enthusiastic and self-motivated technical project manager, team leader and technical consultant with 25 years’ experience, with a software development background. An excellent knowledge of Agile and waterfall project management methodologies (PRINCE2 Practitioner certified). A proven track record of delivering projects on time, to specification and within budget. A confident communicator at all levels of business.

Toby Harding graduated from York University with a degree in Electronic Systems Engineering and has many years experience of technical presales and waterfall/Agile project management.

Toby has worked with BT, Concert, Empower Interactive, Incomit, BEA, SmartTrust, Aepona, AirSense Wireless and London Translations.

Toby is now Head of Projects for Anatwine, a technology innovator in the fashion industry, and is managing projects with some of the biggest names in the industry including ASICS, G-Star RAW, Superdry, Zalando, Adidas and Reebok. He works with a team of 5 project managers who each lead multiple onshore and offshore Agile delivery teams.

With a strong hands-on approach to Agile software development and its associated tools (including TeamGantt, Bitbucket, IntelliJ, Bamboo, Jenkins, AWS, JIRA and Confluence), Toby is often seen with his hands in the code helping his colleagues understand how business requirements should be fulfilled, and how to make improvements to project and business processes.

In his spare time, his inner-geek appears, and Toby is improving his functional programming with Java 8 and learning Spring MVC and Spring JPA. He also created this webpage in Bootstrap just because he had some spare time. Due to his love of great food, wine, and the occasional G&T, Toby is a keen cyclist, spending time pedalling around the hills of the Cotswolds.

Lindsey Harding BA (Hons) MSc

Lindsey’s passion is helping leaders to flourish, realise their potential, and create a more positive experience of the workplace for their people. Coaching individuals to gain insights that help them to identify and unlock barriers to performance, find meaning in their work and become their authentic self, form a regular part of her coaching.

Alongside her work as a leadership development coach and consultant, Lindsey is studying for an MSc in Applied Positive Psychology & Coaching Psychology, a branch of psychology that has the potential to transform the lives of individuals, families and organisations.

In addition she is a certified psychometrician, working with MBTI and FIRO-B. Lindsey is fascinated by the interaction between organisational expectations and an individual’s personal drivers and beliefs and how these dynamics can affect performance and its sustainability over time; this is the result of over 20 years experience in HR, talent management, leadership development and coaching in global multi-nationals.

Her experience of coaching has been on both sides of the organisational table – as an internal and external coach, and as a buyer of coaching services – so she is familiar with the challenge of managing the differing demands of the organisation and individual for coaching outcomes.

Lindsey was Head of Employee Engagement and Inclusion for Experian in London until they moved to Cheltenham in February 2015.
Previously Head of Talent and Resourcing for Vodafone’s EMEA region, Lindsey has been Global Coaching Director and Faculty Director for the Leadership Performance Programme at Diageo, and has also worked for Barclays Group. She graduated from York University (neé Lindsey Brown) with a degree in English and History of Art.

Lindsey is a keen runner and hiker, which counterbalance her love of sharing good wine with her husband and baking with her young daughter!
