I have a deep passion for lifelong learning, and the notion that everybody should have the opportunity to become the very best version of themselves and contribute to creating thriving communities for our future.
I love working with business and community leaders when the way ahead looks tough. I have a special connection to humanitarian service and working with those who are in need of my effort and ideas.
I want to be able to say to my grandchildren that I am working with companies that care about people and are making a substantial difference in the world.
When in need of thinking time, I go for very long walks – 400kms and more – and find the combination of walking, thinking, and generating grand ideas to be irresistible.
I have a passion for working in leadership development. I love what I do, and being part of the team helps me play to my strengths. I am motivated by the growth I see in leaders when we work together – whether that’s partnering with a small organisation, working with amazing people in the Australian and Canadian defence sectors, or admiring the remarkable intellect of leading scientific minds in Australia.
Before taking up my role at PiqueGlobal, I worked in the financial sector. I relished the challenges as I moved through different areas and roles – learning and development, product management, business planning, sales and regional management. I draw on my corporate experience on most days. My background gives me a great understanding of the issues that organisations and business leaders are challenged with every day. In a similar vein, while I have formal business qualifications – which provided an excellent base to build upon – my most significant professional development has come from practical experience, working with talented people and teams to share and apply insights to deliver results.
My family also give me great joy and laughter. I’m proud that they are and continue to be, good people who care about others.
