I have a passion for effective leadership, believing that a combination of evidence and practical application leads to learning and behaviour change.

LDC coach and facilitator

I am a senior leadership development practitioner, specialising in the Neuroscience of Leadership. I have a business background, having begun my career in the City of London, as a shipbroker and member of the Baltic and Mercantile Shipping Exchange.

I have held senior roles with the global organisation P&O Nedlloyd and my career has been internationally focussed, encompassing London, Australia, Hong Kong and New Zealand. I set up my own consultancy in 2007 in New Zealand where I work with government and private sector organisations.

My work is primarily in the areas of:

  • development, design and delivery of long and short term leadership programmes
  • development and delivery of neuroscience of leadership programmes and workshops
  • using neuroscience principles to design and support organisational change
  • leadership development consulting solutions for organisations
  • consulting to organisations to increase organisational buy-in to change initiatives
  • senior executive coaching and facilitation; working with individuals and senior teams to support them in becoming more effective leaders of people and results
  • brain-based leadership assessment diagnostics.

Lately, I've been:

  • using brain-based diagnostic and development tools for fast-track leadership development
  • focusing on leadership-team coaching and on-going development.
  • working with neuroscience to inform and support organisations.

I have a passion for effective leadership, believing that a combination of evidence and practical application leads to learning and behaviour change. 

I qualified as a Shipbroker in the United Kingdom and hold a Graduate Diploma in Human Resource Management from Victoria University in New Zealand, as well as an MSc in The Neuroscience of Leadership from Middlesex University, United Kingdom.
