Ivan Hollingsworth founded Centric Consultants in a bid to tackle ‘culture-washing’ and support business leaders to build strong, sustainable, high-performing teams based on trust and psychological safety – not just pool tables and pizza Fridays.

After 16 years working in senior roles in the pharmaceutical industry, Ivan combines his in-depth research and knowledge with on-the-ground experience of a wide-range of different team dynamics, both in the private and public sector. Ivan creates an inclusive, open and engaging atmosphere tailored to your unique individual or team dynamic and shares strategies and tools that you can start using right away.

A former elite-athlete and awardwinning fundraiser, Ivan brings his lived experience of how culture and trust effect mind-set when it comes to reaching your goals. Over the past 14 years Ivan has raised over £500,000 for charity and uses a combination of his professional expertise, leadership skills, dedication to charitable fundraising and experience of being a Dad to Seb, his now teenage son who underwent open heart surgery as a baby, to discuss what resilience really means in practice.
