I understand how to provide effective strategic business partnerships to help grow your business, through leadership development by working alongside organisations, providing what it takes to get the job done.

With an educator / trainer background, being a current serving health and emergency management professional, with a safety, quality, audit & business management background, I understand how to get results, by building capability and capacity through working strategic partnerships to take your business to the next level.


I have references you can talk to about my performance, don't just take my word for it.


Having a sales, marketing, business management, occupational health, process safety and emergency management background, I understand the value of building solid relationships on trust, understanding how to gain team buy-in and results focused offering solution based answers.


By understanding business psychology dynamics and taking the time to really find out and understand what is important to make a business operate effectively, I have discovered that the old saying "you can lead a horse to water but can't make him drink" no longer applies, as I understand how to make him "thirsty."
