Discovery and co-creation is what imagine if is all about.  We love nothing more than taking time to get to know your context.  Together, we can design a project that will unlock potential. 

 

Here’s a little about the people you'd work with…

Meet the Team

 

It’s now time to meet our greatest Assets!  We are proud of our little team, though we are all works in progress too. 

 

Together we make a difference – we bring people and perspectives together, promote equality and diversity, unleash potential, supervise crash landings, inspire change and celebrate the little things – nudging individuals and communities along that upward spiral.

Kevin Feaviour, Founding Director:

Founder and Director of imagine if, Kevin’s career makes for interesting reading.  After qualifying as a pilot, Kevin decided that air-traffic control in the brain was more up his street runway.

 

Kevin has extensive experience working as a psychologist in education, social care, youth services and business development.  He’s designed programmes and projects for organisations across the UK, in Europe and the US, focusing on everything from trauma to change management, and working with people of all ages and backgrounds.

 

Imagine if… takes you on a collaborative journey and our approach is always personalised to suit the needs of the individual, the team and the company. We emphasise and celebrate the importance of the journey because valuing the process is as important as the outcomes. As are the people who make that journey – after all, people are worth it, wellbeing is invaluable, and sustainable investment makes the most sense.

 

To say Kevin is a people person would be the understatement of the century.  He also loves being active through cycling and walking; he enjoys the seaside and cooking up a storm. 

 

Kevin has a natural talent for engaging people and getting them on board. He listens and understands other people's perspectives and provides bespoke support to help them develop local solutions. He leads from the front and is a charismatic presenter.” – Sue

Louise Cole, Director:

 

Louise has a background in international, community and youth development.  She is admired for her commitment to innovative collaborations, having worked in diverse education, voluntary, community and local authority settings as a trainer and facilitator.  She brings exceptional programme management and organisational development expertise through her previous senior leadership roles.

 

A Director of imagine if since its inception, Louise designs and delivers strength-based programmes, coaching and training to push that spiral upward.  She is driven to unlock the power and potential of people, enable them to better respond to each other and work collaboratively to make great things happen.

 

My vision is for imagine if to reach a wider audience because our tools are powerful ways of creating positive change.

 

Louise also works in her own local coastal community developing creative, place-based projects that connect people through art and culture.

Anna Hendrey, Director:

Anna studied LLB Law with Psychology.  After working as an Immigration Compliance Officer at London South Bank University, she joined SL5 Legal (Tuckers Solicitors) as a Paralegal.  SL5 specialises in Prison Law and Human Rights.  Anna represented prisoners throughout the Parole Board process, providing legal advice, explaining complex procedures, and supporting clients and their families every step of the way. 

 

Working at SL5 led me to realise that many of us don’t have the skills or mindset to manage conversations, maintain relationships or regulate our emotions.  This applied to the prisoners I represented and others who worked with them.  Many simply don’t have the resources or confidence to fuel self-development or initiate change.

 

We need to move away from analysing our shortfalls and take a strength-based approach to learning and rehabilitation.  To give people an understanding of their Assets empowers them, and with the right attitude and collaborative mindset, empowered people can create positive change.

 

She spends her spare time walking around London, trying to find ways to save the planet without giving up cheese.

Nikki Kelly, Community Connect Cornwall Lead:

 

Nikki is the Head of Community Connect in Cornwall.  She is an experienced community practitioner working with the public, private and voluntary sector for over 25 years, leading and developing national and international programmes of work.  Nikki can spot opportunities a mile away and is never far from her next brainwave.

 

[Nikki] has amazing vision and foresight for what needs to be accomplished and proactively puts in the plans to make it happen… The work she is doing and the impact she makes internally and externally is to be admired and commended!” – Lisa

 

Nikki is a mum of two, a nan of two, a wild water swimmer, keen cyclist and has just taken up gig rowing.

Sharon Nettleton, Community Navigator, Community Connect Cornwall:

 

Sharon has many years of varied and far-reaching experience, which goes someway to account for her calm, patient nature and well of wisdom we’re yet to get to the bottom of. 

 

Sharon worked as a nurse for over 10 years, specialising in Emergency Depts, Burns Unit, Acute Frailty admissions and surgery.  She later qualified with the AOR in Reflexology, working with a local Chiropractor Practice, midwives and birthing centre in Kent for 12 years.  She then worked for Age UK Cornwall for 6 years covering projects across the county including Living Well, Steady On and Integrated Care in Acute Settings.

 

Sharon was the first Community Navigator in our Community Connect Cornwall project, working with Truro City Council, Feock Parish Council and local GP surgeries to develop a community-based approach to support the well-being of local people.

 

Sharon leads on referrals, providing 1:1 support, signposting, carrying out Guided Conversations, coaching and goal setting to help individuals find the support that they need.

 

Seeing people’s journey in life take a positive step forward after meeting and working with them for only a brief period brings great job satisfaction, complementing a medical approach and providing a great outcome for everyone.

Outside of work Sharon enjoys spending time outdoors, with family, travelling and listening to Jessie Ware and her Mum, Lennie’s, Table Manners podcast.

 

You’ve helped me turn my life around, I couldn’t have done it without your help, thank you.” – Geoff, patient.

William Francis, Illustrator and Graphic Designer:

 

Now here’s a fine example of collaboration and innovation. Will is working closely with Anna to redesign two Asset for Success material packs, so that organisations without the time to co-create from scratch can choose a style to suit them.  You can spot his illustrations all over the website.

 

Will is energetic, imaginative and (as you can see) rather talented. He has a passion for ideas – who new illustrations could be so witty? We are excited to launch our new material pack and look forward to working with him on future projects. You can check out what else he’s up to here: williamfrancisdrawingman.com  @will_francis_drawing_man

 

All of the work has been a real pleasure – very much enjoying putting it together” (yes, he rhymes too).
