I specialize in leadership development, executive presence, interpersonal communication skills, emotional intelligence, and business transformation. I have worked within the training and development field for over 16 years, developing skills that range from sharp listening to strong intuition, and finding a courage to challenge the status quo. Each play a small part in what makes me so effective as a facilitator.
My true strength and passion lies in helping my clients realize and overcome their problems – both internally and externally – and encouraging them to achieve their full leadership and business potential.
The approach I take to my work translates across cultures and industries. This has led me across the globe, including South Africa, Europe, Asia, and North America. It has been a privilege to work with companies such as Google, Siemens, Adidas, Saatchi & Saatchi, UNICEF, IBM and Microsoft, and learn invaluable skills that are transferable to individuals and organizations of any background or ambition.
