Productivity, goals and dilemmas of leaders and their teams


Certified Coach (ACC)

20+ Years’ International Business Experience


You can’t engage in your work in a fulfilling and useful way if critical elements – like role and responsibility, purpose, power and remit, reporting lines, accountability, medium to long-term context, common ground, environment, values, and so on – are unclear or messy.

Over the course of my work history, I have always been focused on the happiness and productivity of people. I partner with decision-makers to bring about sustainable shifts in how people conduct themselves and how they contribute to their organisation.

With a passion for manners and ethics at work, here’s what I do best:

  • Leadership Development & Coaching Programmes
  • Executive & Team Coaching
  • Stakeholder Engagement
  • Team Building & Alignment
  • Team Productivity
  • Aligning HR Strategy to Organisational Goals
  • Talent & Resource Evaluation, Planning & Development
  • Talent Selection & Management
  • Employment Law & Contracts
  • Diversity & Inclusion Programmes
  • Onboarding & Induction Programmes
  • Cross-Organisation Relationships & Consultation
