With over 30 years of experience in personal, professional, and organisational change, Ali Davies helps individuals and organisations create and navigate change to achieve what matters most to them. She specializes in the human side of change.
For the last 19 years, she has worked with private clients, groups, and organizations in several countries around the world offering consultancy, coaching, education, and her core program, Change in Action.
Prior to that, she spent 14 years in large corporate organizations, including Coca-Cola and Pepsi UK distributors in the areas of Supply Chain Management and Customer Services. During her corporate career, her leadership roles included managing large complex change projects and leading teams to improve performance, achieve goals, and transform results.
In addition, she is the Founder of Outside of the Circle, an organization dedicated to helping high-level professionals at midlife and beyond design the next chapter in their life and work and create the changes necessary to turn it into reality.
My professional mission is to help make navigating change easier, simpler and to feel less of a struggle because, often, what people want most is just on the other side of the discomfort, challenges, and uncertainty of the change process.
My personal mission is to help people bring more fulfillment and meaning into life, work, business, and organisations.
Over the last 20 years, I have created many changes in my personal life, so I can relate to exactly what it takes to create change successfully.
I had a great 14 year career in the corporate world but in 2000 I decided that living and working by the conventional definition of success didn’t feel that fulfilling or meaningful to me anymore. So I decided to create my own definition of success and build my life and work around that. I set out to design the next chapter of my life and work and to create the changes necessary to turn it into reality.
In 2001 I left the corporate world to run my own business (a long held dream). Over the last 20 years since leaving the corporate world, I have continued to take a design approach to my life and work for each new chapter. As a result, I have made significant changes numerous times. For example, I left the UK to live in Ireland for seven years. I then moved to Canada in 2013 and eventually became a Canadian Citizen. There have been many other redesigns and changes to my business and personal life over the years too.
I now live on an island near Vancouver on the West Coast of Canada with my husband, teenage son, and our rescue dog, Shadow. Island life allows us to live and work on our own terms, by our own definition of success.
