My facilitation style: I bring an engaging, warm, and bold approach to my facilitation. Honesty is my policy, and I strive to uplift and make every interaction relevant and meaningful.

What gets me out of bed in the morning: The excitement of working with such interesting and diverse people fuels me. A leisurely walk with my family and the prospect of discovering a new favourite song add that extra bounce to my step!

I get a real kick out of: Witnessing growth and transformation in real time is where the magic happens for me – those “aha” moments are simply the best.

What I most look forward to when working with a new client: I’m eager to dive into understanding the team dynamic, unpacking their needs on a very human level, and setting the stage for positive change.

Outside of work, you’ll find me: In my garden, engaged in lively conversations with family and friends. Picture this – a balmy evening, great music and laughter in the background, a crackling fire, and the stars shining above.

My dream client: A dream client, to me, is someone open-minded to the possibility of change. They believe that each person brings their unique magic to the mix, and together, we can create something extraordinary.

The number one thing I’ve learnt as a facilitator: Learn to read between the lines – it’s about seeing past the brand, beyond political correctness, image, and ego. Dive deep into the heart and soul of each person in the team to foster genuine connections.
