Natalie Firth

Natalie is a Principal Consultant at Q5 specialising in organisation design and effectiveness. Natalie focuses on taking the time to understand the unique circumstances of each organisation and working closely with teams to deliver a tailored solution. She is a qualified Scrum Master and experienced team coach.

Natalie has led projects in operating model design and implementation, cultural diagnostics, change management and process redesign. She has experience in both the public and private sector, most recently working on the cyber security organisation design for a global telecoms provider and operations operating model for a leading UK retailer.

Having started her career in Retail before joining Q5 in 2015, Natalie spent time in project management, HR and store management roles, as well as living and working in China. She holds a degree in Chinese from the University of Oxford and continues her battle to become fluent in Mandarin – she expects this battle to last a lifetime.   

Natalie was part of the team who established Q5 Pop Up Consulting in 2020 and also manages Q5’s relationship with 180Degrees Consulting Bath University. She’s inspired most by the people who took the time to mentor and coach her throughout the early part of her own career and is passionate about broadening access to consulting. 

Originally from the North-West of England, Natalie enjoys trips home to spend time with family and trying out new recipes.
