About Eunice

Eunice has been pivotal to the success of a huge number of manufacturing firms. She’s delivered bespoke programmes in a wide range of environments such as office, design and production – and across both large organisations and SMEs in a variety of industries, including construction, pharmaceuticals, bulk chemicals, explosives, steel, automotive, and furniture.

Her extensive experience and education have proved vital throughout her career – particularly her Six Sigma certification and status as a Chartered Engineer. Eunice’s keen interest in teaching and developing others is evident through her PGCE and PCET, as well as her Level 5 in Developing Subject Pedagogy and Understanding.

Eunice’s speciality lies in lean improvement programmes, although there are many strings to her bow. She also has a strong background in technical change management, plant engineering, operational management, and strategic maintenance. What’s more, she’s proficient in Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) and Six Sigma. Plus, she’s performed a number of operational excellence audits for businesses preparing for Shingo.

Through facilitation, training, coaching and mentoring, Eunice has achieved significant success for her clients. Among the benefits are a reduction in lead time, cost and inventory, along with enhanced delivery performance. 

In addition to this, Eunice takes her devotion to the sector a step further by being an associate board member on the Process Industry and Manufacturing Boards of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), as well as a founder-chair of the Education & Training Board (Manufacturing) and a professional development consultant.

Eunice’s determination to succeed and achieve spreads beyond work to her passion for sports. These include being the twice National Champion for the British and Irish Orienteering Squad, as well as making numerous national squads and competing in world championships for cross-country running, fell running, mountain bike orienteering, and ski orienteering. Additionally, she made the qualifying time for the Olympics in cross-country skiing.
