As one of the joint managing directors at Ararna, Harry has over fifteen years’ experience delivering training and consultancy services to a wide range of clients. He has led on a number of projects which have required engagement with an array of individuals from diverse backgrounds, communities and levels of ability.
Harry imbues his work with an analytical approach. This has enabled him to create a number of financial and mathematical models designed to enhance client organisations.

He has designed and delivered training for over three hundred and fifty NHS managers via the OCN-accredited Ararna service redesign programme. This programme has been rolled out across NHS organisations in England and Wales and has helped managers within the NHS to explore practical solutions to real life challenges.
Harry’s NHS work is built upon a deep understanding of the key strategic issues facing the health service. This has ensured that his knowledge is continually relevant to the present needs and culture of the client organisation. This is demonstrated in his support for CCGs, assisting them in the development of business plans and longer term strategies. Harry has extensive experience working within the primary care sector, having co-authored the Department of Health’s Improving Access, Responding to Patients Guide.
He is also highly skilled and experienced in delivering services to other public sector organisations. As an expert in the worklessness agenda, Harry has worked with a number of local authorities on employment and enterprise, economic regeneration and job brokerage. He has delivered numerous coaching and leadership programmes for senior managers and directors.
Harry has delivered training across all levels of sales and marketing services, providing one-day customer services training for advisors, and executive coaching for members of the board. His depth of experience has enabled him to provide expert knowledge and insight on business development and income creation across a range of industries.
Harry is trained as a Black Belt in Lean Six Sigma and is an expert on identifying efficiencies within client organisations. Additionally, Harry is certified in the BHBIA adverse event/product complaint training, which has provided him with the credentials required to perform market research for the pharmaceutical industry.
