Several years ago, I found myself on the sideline, watching my husband work through the challenges of running a family owned business.  At the same time I was working for a government organisation as a workplace coach and trainer.  In both spaces the daily challenges centred around one key area – people.  Since that time, I have been fascinated with working and understanding why people do what they do and how to create an environment that allows both leaders and those on the floor to work together and find success individually and collectively.

I believe that so many issues that businesses face can be resolved through good communication, clear systems and processes and leaders that take the time to engage with their people.  With a bachelor in business, specialising in Human Resources and my experience operating at an executive level as Head of HR, I am able to bring you a range of services in the people space from both the compliant side of HR to looking at how to build and improve culture and engagement.   With developed skills and tools, I can help guide businesses to create a culture that can set themselves and their people up for success.
