Knock It Out Of The Park
I am a passionate connector, facilitator, and best practice pollinator who brings energy and enthusiasm to everything I do. I will help you achieve the future YOU want.
For 30 years I've led a hybrid career as an entrepreneur and senior manager providing strategy, project and customer experience expertise across a broad range of industries. These include the Olympics, arts, events, education, technology and finance.
Today I run a global coaching and consulting practice working with teams and individuals in expanding their leadership potential.
And by 'leadership' I mean in all facets of your life and business.
My approach combines curiosity, courage, a spirit of partnership and a good dose of humour. Deeply understanding you and getting to the core of your purpose is my top priority.
Whether I'm supporting you by facilitating for a group, making sure that project sees daylight and gets across the finish line or coaching one-to-one I will help you get to the heart of what you want and map out how to get there. Here's the catch. We will only be successful if you are ready to take action. Cause let's be honest: only wishing you could do it doesn't get you anywhere. It takes effort... and I will be here to support you and cheer you on along the way.
I'm a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC), Associate Certified Coach (ACC) and Project Management Professional (PMP) with an MBA and certificates in Global Strategy (SFU) and Organizational Analysis (Stanford). I'm also a graduate of the Advanced Leadership Training Program (Co-Active Training Institute)
Let's get started.
I provide facilitation for groups who want to uncover the value of different perspectives and explore possibilities beyond the 'usual discussion'. Whether it's a customer focus group, internal team building or an organizational strategy session, everyone will be inspired to participate.
You live the life you create.
Whether you want to take your game to the next level, find more balance, or make a big life change, coaching will give you unbiased support and hold you accountable for stepping into the future you want.
There's nothing worse than sitting in a room and hearing someone talk at you. So, I create and facilitate experiential, dynamic engagements that will deepen the learning and result in a call to action. Doesn't your audience deserve it?
