Based in the North West of England, we have founded Rhythm as two long-standing colleagues who have spent our careers solving problems, creating efficiencies and bringing a rhythm to organisations and their leadership teams.

We are known for overcoming challenges, building relationships, collaborating and delivering great outcomes – acting as critical friends and trusted advisors to a variety of leadership and executive teams.

We have a combined 50+ years in corporate life and are seeking to bring our expertise and fresh thinking to deliver effective solutions for your business in an accessible and affordable way.

I am a passionate, creative problem-solver with over 30 years’ experience within financial services and 25 in a senior leadership role.

I have built my reputation on getting things done, overcoming obstacles and building enduring solutions and capability.

Integrity is a core value and I am known for always doing the right thing… for the business, its customers and colleagues.   I have technical expertise in fraud prevention and risk management fused with a keen practical, pragmatic and commercial focus which has made me a trusted adviser to senior leadership teams, Executives and Boards.

I am married to Jamie and we have three daughters and an array of family pets.

I am a highly motivated fixer, with 25 years’ experience operating at a senior level in the financial services and retail sectors.

I have successfully driven transformational change across Corporate Banking, Finance and

Risk functions.

My willingness to get stuck in and get my hands dirty whenever required, has enabled me to create a track record of bringing people together to build exceptional business management capabilities and creating capacity for senior executives and their leadership teams to focus on delivering against strategic priorities.

I am married to Sue and have three sons and a puppy-in-training.

“Having worked closely with both Debbie and Nick, I can strongly recommend them – they would make a positive difference to any organisation.  With a strong work ethic and the ability to fix problems and get things done, well worth a chat if you need help embedding risk management,  improving risk maturity, changing culture, or bringing clarity and organisation to the running of your business”

Risk Business Management

A common challenge for senior leaders and business owners is how they can gain assurance. How to get a clear view of performance, of costs, whether things are being done in the best way, whether risks are understood and under control. We can provide assurance over any of our service categories or any aspect of your business.

Culture is massively important in any team or business – we are passionate about this and we always seek to take people with us, to achieve buy-in and to create an enduring capability – embedding any new processes and aligning role profiles and objectives/goals with your strategic priorities.
