I began my career as a Human Performance Consultant with Accenture in Melbourne, but I’ve benefited greatly from a global career. Currently based in Hong Kong, I’ve worked and lived across Asia (Indonesia, Malaysia, China and the Philippines) and Europe (London and Dublin). These experiences have regularly exposed me to multi-location businesses, and highly diverse teams. I have now been a coach for 4 years, having been introduced to the process when I re-entered the workforce after being an expat partner and running my own business. Through becoming a coach I discovered that I thrive in and understand challenging and ambiguous environments, and I aim to share my insights through coaching to help them too also thrive in difficult situations. My key focus for my clients is driving and motivating them to be the very best they can be.
I’m a Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach, using this positive coaching approach to help individuals recognise a deeper understanding of what their strengths are, and how to use these in the workplace. Before I formalised my coaching practice, I used a similar skill set working extensively with Nestle Nespresso HQ as global head of learning and development, and as a change management and human performance consultant at Accenture. More recently I’ve worked as a coach and consultant for C-Suite and high potential managers in organisations including Microsoft; Coca-Cola; the US State Department; Glaxosmithkline; online fashion retailer ZALORA and Philip Morris International.
I love learning from others, as it enhances the learning experience for individuals and teams that I work with. I love when the individuals and teams I coach realise they have worked towards the best outcomes for them and others through our coaching conversations. It’s amazing to see the transformation of individuals in front of your eyes when they discover their own potential! As well as being a constant learner, I hold a Commerce Degree (Monash University), Graduate Diploma (HR&IR) (Melbourne University); Masters in Business (HR) (Smurfit School of Business, University College Dublin / NOEMA Business School Reims, France) and recently completed the Financial Times Non Executive Director Diploma.
