I believe that an organisation is built around relationships. So when psychological safety is overlooked, those relationships are too. And your organisation suffers. Let’s stop that from happening.
After completing a degree in ecology, Tom’s first job title was “Experimentalist”. From there, he’s gone from IT and engineering to CIO, CTO and to being an organisational change consultant.
Tom once worked in an environment that cultivated fear. Where people were afraid to speak up, suggest new ideas and admit mistakes. The business suffered and was going backwards. And people weren’t happy. Needless to say, he didn’t stay there very long.
But from experiencing how not to do things, it made him driven to learn and teach others how to do things. To help organisations create an environment that promotes change, experimentation and support.
Tom founded Iterum Ltd as a vehicle to deliver a new approach to training and consultancy around the world of work. Iterum has clients globally, including healthcare, aviation, manufacturing and technology, and is the organisation behind psychsafety.com Today, Psych Safety is the primary source of psychological safety content around the world. A continuously evolving platform that pulls together all of Tom’s, and others’, resources for others to benefit from.
Tom is also a father, an avid mountain biker, and studying for a Master’s Degree in Global Public Health. Full bio is here.
With a degree in Physics from Oxford and many years’ experience in teaching, leadership development, and curriculum design, Jade is an expert in education and facilitation, and is currently researching for a PhD in Educational Practice.

Communicating is Deisa’s lifetime passion: in this process, she earned a Bachelor’s degree in Literature with a mention in creative writing and a publishing diploma from Venezuela’s Central University. After that, she continued developing verbal and writing studies to match with graphic design and how to explore the visual appeal and the function of comprehensive management in illustration.
The next moves are taken through 10 years of working with books, magazines and printed materials and also with digital formats in various publishing houses, advertising companies and related freelance projects. Deisa’s workshops, courses and presentations are focused on creativity as the foundation for connecting people and ideas with interesting and attractive results: she believes in play and experimentation as part of the dynamic in the creative process.
When Deisa isn’t drawing something or tattooing someone, she enjoys street art, spending time with her daughter and friends, chatting about life, time and memes, as well as exploring new spots at natural spaces to observe and restore energy.
We don’t adhere to one particular framework. Every team is different, so every approach to change is different. That’s why we take the time to understand how you and your team work and what you’re trying to achieve – and suggest the best roadmap for you. And if something isn’t clicking? We simply switch it up.
We’ve held senior leadership positions and we work with clients in many industries, including technology, aviation, healthcare, education and more. And practices that work for one can work for another. So we use shared learnings to get the most out of your organisation – regardless of industry.
Psychological safety is all about continuous improvement. So we stay up to date on best practices by regularly talking with the psychological safety community and being involved in academic research across numerous institutions. Plus, we never stop reading. So you’ll always feel like you’re moving forwards with us, never backwards.
