With a career spanning over 25 years, I have developed a valuable understanding of the different drivers and challenges facing numerous organisations across a broad section of industries, sectors and countries having lived and worked out of South Africa, United Kingdom and now Perth, Western Australia.
I share my depth of knowledge in the professional services, banking and finance sectors to facilitate motivating, highly relevant presentations, workshops, programs and coaching. My work aims to develop the participant’s skills and allowing them to translate these skills to their own work.
My passion is enabling those around me. I work with individuals and businesses – helping them work out where they are at now – where they would like to go and how they might close the gap between the two with an emphasis on strategic and business development planning.
I have worked with a number of clients across a broad industry base in the professional services market (legal, accounting and engineering) mining and resources market (small exploration companies to large multi nationals), SME market, as well as companies in recruitment, utilities and government.
I believe in giving back to the community – I am the Perth manager for the Melbourne based NFP called The Nappy Collective who collect unused disposable nappies and distribute them to families in crisis; and I also work with the Jade Lewis & Friends Foundation who provide women prisoners with a second chance.
I grew up in South Africa and spent most of my childhood barefoot having fun. My husband Anthony and I spent over four and a half years in the UK where our daughter Kate was born. We moved to Perth Western Australia 14 years ago – a great decision. I am hooked on learning and development and I am a self-confessed book addict who runs a Women’s Business Book Club called POD Book Chats. I freely admits that I can’t play golf to save myself but I am an asset in a game of Ambrose because of that fact and at the end of a hot day in sunny Perth you will find me with either a cold beer or a good drop of wine with my family.
