Yvette Elcock - Director

Yvette has had a career in people development spanning over 25 years. She believes that personal development is critical for delivering high performance business results and as such, her strong commercial acumen and business understanding enables her to put personal development in a business context. This gives her style some edge. She strives to build and sustain strong, trusting relationships with her team and clients which she considers essential to Moonraker Development helping clients achieve their successes.

Before founding Moonraker Development, she held a variety of training, development and consulting roles and also spent time as an HR Director. Her early career roles were eclectic in that she held sales roles in a variety of different fields including agriculture and line management roles in leisure and department store retailing. Her mid-career included senior international roles working in the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and the US in communications and management development. She currently travels to Europe and Africa on regular assignments.

She studied Business Studies and is a registered practitioner of Myers Briggs Type Indicator, FIRO-B, Strengths Deployment Inventory, OPQ, and Level B Occupational Tests. She has recently become a Trained Facilitator for the Leadership Challenge from the work of Kouzes and Posner and has also undertaken continuous professional development in Gestalt, Transactional Analysis, Neuro-Linguistic Programming and Resilience coaching. She is a Professional Certified Coach with the International Coach Federation and trained as a Coach Supervisor with the Coaching Supervision Academy.

Yvette and Moonraker Development are in Birmingham, West Midlands although her Wiltshire roots remain. She is a keen gardener and has spent far too much on creating her little back garden oasis!

Helen_Laishely

Helen Laishley – Artist in Residence

Helen taught Art and Design, Philosophy, Critical Thinking and Theory of Knowledge for 13 years before taking the leap into full time creative practice.

Her focus was fostering creativity and creative and critical thinking. An outstanding practitioner, she took the lead on Gifted and Talented and Pedagogy and was an Assistant Principal for Teaching and Learning for five years. Her leadership responsibilities were enhancing classroom practice, assessment and behaviour for learning. One of her lasting legacies was a clear and visual system to support positive behaviour and communication between teachers and students.

She is a published author, illustrator and portraitist training at The University of Central Lancashire and Chelsea College of Art and Design. Her illustrative work uses bold colour, strong narrative themes and expressive figures. As a fine artist, she ensures each illustration is a stand-alone work of art in itself and so her books are limited edition art pieces in their own right.

Helen is an advocate of 'The Growth Mindset' in that she believes that the greatest barrier to learning and development is an individual’s attitude to learning and so believes that the process of art making is a powerful metaphor for creative leadership and teamwork. 'The act of making art can throw up a multitude of problems that need resolving. When I work alone these are the conversations I have with myself and my brushes. As a leader I use this creative approach to lead teams.'

Helen is in Birmingham with a teenager and small menagerie of rescued animals. She enjoys yoga, sewing and wool craft, all at amateur level.
