About Me

I can bring to your team skills, experience and good common business sense. And I can do it in a way that encourages your team to change behaviour for the better.

Here is a little about my story and the work I've done. To see what I've been doing recently, please look at my projects.

My Background

I have spent the last 16 years working with global performance management company, Nielsen.

I've worked extensively across the Australian and New Zealand markets with project work in the US, France, Malaysia, Canada, South Korea, Thailand and Italy.

Over the last 6 years I worked in the Executive Team leading the Marketing and Communications function for the Pacific arm of the business. I also have a history of success in leading sales process improvements - training teams and coaching individuals. This work has produced some of the most exciting commercial wins of recent years.

In addition to my training and facilitation work, I am a sought-after conference and boardroom presenter. 

Today I bring these skills and experiences directly to clients.


Teaching

When I am not working directly with clients, I lecture Marketing. Leadership & People Management to the students in the Masters of Information Technology course at the University of Technology Sydney.
