I have coached and consulted with individuals and organisations for over twelve years, in the UK and Australia. During that time, I have worked with thousands of individuals and hundreds of organisations to help them achieve their goals. My consulting work means I get to peek behind the curtains of organisations and learn how they work. Understanding
what makes organisations and their leaders tick makes me a better coach for my clients. And being a coach makes me a better consultant. As well as seeing coaching clients, I also lead the Simply Coaching team and deliver our training and development programmes.
I started my career in customer service, and through a combination of determination, investing in my own development - and a little bit of luck, I rose through the ranks. I have worked at executive levels in government, led the development of a new digital and design agency in Australia and am currently a principal at a global management consulting firm, Nous Group where I lead the experience design practice. I am also on the board of the Not for Profit One Ball who support young people with their physical and mental health through sport and I lead and run Simply Coaching. I love having a portfolio career and find learnings in one area of my life can easily be applied in another.
My diverse experience means I have seen the good, the bad and the ugly of leadership. I have learnt some lessons along the way, and now specialise in working with people who want to change their careers or level up their performance to achieve their full potential.
I have coached and built the capability of Chief Executives, Directors, Managers, Frontline Workers and everyone in between. As a result, my coaching style is direct, positive and future-focussed - working in partnership every step of the way.
Through my consulting work - where I lead the Experience Design Practice - I have coached and led teams through the design process. My design work has included employee experience design using co-design and other design methodologies. I am an expert facilitator and understand the importance of employee engagement to deliver results.

I am thrilled to have been offered the job! Thank you again for the coaching - it was instrumental in helping me clarify my goals and direction, and how to articulate that during my 'career change' process.
