Speaker Bio
“Opportunity shrinks or expands in proportion to your courage. It’s time to dig deep and create new futures”

Client Focus Areas:
• Culture transformation
• Aligning leaders to purpose and strategy
• Mindset & behaviour change
• Creating organisational energy
• Enabling personal leadership growth

I have over twenty years of private corporate sector experience, including influential senior roles in international organisations. I’ve worked in the investment banking, legal and technology sectors, in organisations like Linklaters, Lehman Brothers, Olswang, Morrison & Foerster and Kleinwort Benson. I have successfully articulated corporate purpose and devised corporate strategies to bring purpose to life. I ran internal culture transformation programmes, as well as aligned leaders and teams to the corporate mission. I have led award-winning campaigns that increased corporate performance and employee engagement as a result.

Being a fitness enthusiast, I have crossed a few finish lines along the way, too. Having recovered from a traumatic cycling accident in 2015, I qualified as a personal trainer, executive coach and Systemic Team Coach.

Blending these skills with my corporate leadership and personal resilience experience, I coach and consult with leadership teams to build purpose-driven strategies, transform cultures and develop teams so they can be their brilliant best, create their future and thrive- and I love it!
