My Facilitation Style: Transformational, Empowering, Creative, Trusting the process, Supporting, Engaging, Challenging and Fun

What gets me out of bed in the morning: Prayer, Meditation and Exciting Projects

I get a real kick out of: Exciting viable business ideas and opportunities

What I most look forward to when working with a new client: Building professional lasting relationship, learning, supporting the client to overcome their challenges and seeing the transformation

Outside of work you will find me: Sightseeing beautiful places, attending events and connecting with like-minded people, shopping, being Momager and spending quality time with my family

My dream client: Someone who is passionate about leading and developing themselves

The number one thing that I have learnt as a facilitator: Confidentiality is key. Build trust with your clients and participants
