What Can I Do for You?

Let me bring my leadership experience to help you solve problems, develop your skills or maximise opportunities.

I’m an experience general manager with more than 30 years of experience leading small, medium and large teams. I am located in Brisbane, Queensland.

I am able to assess team and leadership issues objectively and take a holistic view of specific problems and opportunities so I can give you advice and coaching on how best to approach them. Being independent of your organisation allows me to have fresh eyes and often see things that can sometimes be missed when you are involved in the business daily.

I’ve worked with three ASX top 20 listed organisations, not-for-profits and charities and start-ups. My ability to adapt my leadership style and approach to improve team culture, performance and engagement is due to the real life experience I have gained leading teams. My advice will be practical and effective. If you need to fix problems within your team, my advice will have practical advice that actually works.

My Masters degree and Harvard Disruptive Strategy training, coupled with years of hands on experience, allows me to work with management theory and practice to develop solutions which can be operationalised.
