Personal Statement

I have a passion for creating the environment and holding the space to enable others to learn and develop their skills in the area of leadership development.  I do this is through building strong trusting relationships as a coach, and facilitator, enabling those I work with explore, challenge their assumptions and make positive change happen, in a safe environment.  I bring a wealth of experience and knowledge from the hundreds I have engaged with over the years from spread of industries, cultures and professions, and a strong desire to share this with others.
