For the past 25 years I have thrived as a creative and commercial Executive leading and coaching talent in corporate environments. Being in the C-Suite has given me direct access to some incredible people, in the technology, finance and banking, payments, education, creative and retail industries. I’ve worked in Asia at Leo Burnett Advertising, McCann Erickson and IBM. In Australia I have worked for ANZ Bank, Westpac Group and most recently, Visa Inc.
My foundation in communicating with influence started during my early career as a radio announcer in the New Zealand media. It was in radio I first learned the importance of clarity in messaging, along with the power a good speaker holds, and how anyone can develop this advantage.
Executive corporate life has exposed me to many different leadership styles and behaviours. There isn’t much I haven’t seen – the good, the bad and the plain ugly! I could write a book...and probably will.
My ‘superpower’ is successfully empowering and helping individuals transform across entrepreneurial, corporate and not-for-profit environments and my areas of expertise are:
- Executive & Leadership Coaching
- Marketing Advisory
- Writing & Speaking
I have an MBA, am a graduate of Harvard Kennedy Business School and will complete the final stage of my Diploma of Professional Leadership Coaching this year. I created a start up in Singapore so know the hard slog and highs of owning a small business, and am both a speaker and author on leadership, brand and marketing.
My finest role is that of “Mum” of two fine young people (my greatest educators), and with parenting comes my passion for good wine and storytelling! Ultimately, I am devoted to helping others achieve personal balance and a successful, joyful working life.
