Meryl set up her own consultancy and coaching business in September 2007 after many years in the telecommunications industry. She specialises in senior executive coaching, leadership and consultancy services for buyers and suppliers.
In December 2013, Meryl was appointed Crown Representative by Cabinet Office to work with strategic suppliers.
