Elaine Grix is a professional leadership and development specialist with 25 years of experience in HR and talent management.
Before starting her own consultancy, Elaine held several senior roles in large-scale commercial businesses. This included her positions as Head of HR and Head of Talent and Development for Heathrow and People Lead for the new Terminal 2, where she managed leadership and team programmes for over 500 employees. She was also a Store Manager for Tesco, accountable for a team of 500 in a Superstore to ensure profit and excellence in operations and customer service.

In all elements of her work, Elaine aims to help individuals, team and organisations maximise their true potential and improve commercial performance.
