A growing calling to bring the power of spirituality and consciousness into the business world led to Lorraine choosing to cut short her high flying and diverse corporate career at the age of 38 that changed the whole trajectory of her life. Instead of continuing to buy into the traditions of business, Lorraine has spent the last 20 years translating spiritual principles into a language and ethos that can be heard in the most traditional of organisations.
As a Corporate change agent, consultant, coach and mentor Lorraine founded organisational development consultancy azzur, being completely transparent about the spiritual principles on which it operates. She has worked with clients across the business spectrum from transport to financial services, retail to health, local government and the wider public sector. Alongside over 20 years of consulting, Lorraine brings 20 years of service industry experience to bear through her senior leadership roles at British Airways (BA) and Great North Eastern Railway (GNER).
She has lectured at Universities, set up the Foundation for Workplace Spirituality, supported the International Conference on Organisational Spirituality (ICOS) (sponsored by Surrey University), leads the azzur Conscious Leadership and Organisations team, runs consciousness retreats, blogs extensively and is currently co-authoring her second book, this time about Conscious Leadership.
She is a member and Executive Director of the Community for Living Ethics in Umbria Italy where she leads the Communication Department and several developmental projects including the Science of Group Work and annual International Conferences. Lorraine is also a member of several global spiritual groups and communities serving the greater good of Humanity and the planet. With Sundial House, she is a mentor for the 3-year Creative Meditation Programme as well as being a perpetual student and practitioner of creative meditation.
She works and studies extensively in developing and exploring consciousness in groups, leadership and organisations, believing that business leaders are key players in transforming the well-being of the planet and humanity as a whole.
