I’m a senior marketer with 15 years corporate experience and also a qualified coach.

I am focused on helping senior and aspiring leaders achieve significant improvements in personal impact and effectiveness. I believe that there are four key areas to focus on that together will enable you to expand your own perspectives, enable greater strategic clarity, better decision making, and more impactful execution: Active Understanding, Clear Goals, Personal Ownership, and Personal Brand Management.
Moving into a new demanding role? Experiencing conflict in the workplace? Working hard yet it seems almost impossible to make any progress? Feel overwhelmed by the decisions you need to make? Lack confidence to change your strategy and go for growth? I start by understanding your personal situation and remain actively understanding throughout the mentoring engagement.
A clear vision is built upon clear and actionable goals. I encourage a mix of small and large steps in order to achieve your full potential. Goal setting is an art, not a science. To achieve the biggest goals will require breaking them down into smaller parts. Throughout the mentoring engagement, clear goals are set, measured and reviewed during every mentoring session.
Mentoring empowers you to think strategically, and gives you the confidence to take control. During each mentoring session, you have the space to work on understanding yourself, what you want, and what you might personally improve to be even more effective. Each session results in you creating and owning your personal action plan. Being mentored results in you doing the “heavy lifting,” and so personal ownership remains yours throughout the engagement.
I can help you get on track and look good inside your business. I provide ideas and methods to reinforce your personal brand inside your company. In addition, I will regularly encourage you in different ways to improve your personal brand externally too – including techniques through social media engagements, personal development opportunities, and broader active networking engagements that strengthen your personal brand.

I am a passionate and energetic person who loves to help people and see other people succeed. I thrive on giving my all to any project and enjoy the journey as much as the end result. I like being challenged with new projects and watching my hard work unfold. I have excellent time management and organization skills, I am a positive person and accept any road blocks or hiccups as a test and something to overcome. I have had much life experience, some brilliantly unforgettable and some so traumatic I wonder how I got through, but I did and here I am, still alive and kicking, my sense of humour still intact and ready for anything else life chooses to throw at me.
If you are stuck and are looking for direction, I will be able to help. I’ve counselled people on a personal and professional level for many years and am fortunate to have had success. I’m more interested in your getting your strategy and direction in place than whatever fee is involved.
