Everyone involved in Second Mile Consulting, including our partners, have all had different journeys to arrive at the same point – being motivated to always go the second mile. Whether through their approach to day-to-day life, in the workplace, setting personal targets to achieve, as a parent or carer, or setting up their own businesses. It’s at the core of what we do at Second Mile Consulting.

Director of Second Mile Consulting

Julia’s understanding of human behaviour in the workplace and her healthy dose of pragmatism gives her the gravitas to create lasting foundations for change – supporting individuals, teams and organisations with creative yet practical solutions.

Julia has 17 years experience of working in financial regulation which spans the SFA, FSA, PRA and most recently as Head of Authorisation Function for the Bank of England. Alongside a significant operational leadership role, Julia has worked on many key change programmes and sat on senior Leadership Boards including Structural Reform and Senior Managers Regime. Having experienced many regulatory high-profile crises and failures, Julia has first-hand experience of decision making under pressure whilst maintaining an environment where individuals continue to thrive and grow. Julia has a keen interest in raising awareness of the importance of self-understanding and emotional intelligence in making work places better places.

Julia has extensive experience of training, coaching and mentoring in the workplace, along with experience of a full range of employment issues as a leader. She is an engaging and energetic facilitator and delivers dynamic and interactive sessions focused on practical ways of avoiding workplace problems and constructive ways to engage management and staff for high performance. Using her leadership background, she draws on real life, credible examples on how things can go wrong, and how that can be avoided.

She is an accredited Facet5 Principal Consultant, accredited workplace mediator and The Right Conversation Team Diagnostic accredited practitioner. She has worked with many complex, multi-sector teams ranging from those looking for enhancement to those with significant issues.

Since her time at the Bank of England where Julia set up a number of wellbeing initiatives, Julia co-founded Thrive in the City, works to embed mental wellbeing in all aspects of the workplace and is passionate about helping relatively small financial services firms and start-ups compete with the larger long-established financial institutions and ways of working.
