Chrissie Tiller Associates CTA is me and a number of like-minded colleagues I collaborate with on individual projects along with a group of younger researchers, writers and facilitators for whom I act as a mentor and critical friend. My consultancy is informed by my creative practice and many years experience of working across disciplines, national boundaries and cultural contexts.  It is led by a passionate commitment to collaborative and partnership working and developing a shared sense of trust that comes from openness in communication with both clients and teams.
