I have over 30 years’ experience working as a senior commercial lawyer and lecturer, in professional service firms, multinational corporations and universities.
I have held positions in Sydney, Tokyo, Paris, Geneva and New York, and have worked closely with corporate Presidents, Vice-Presidents, CEOs, Senior academics and Clinicians on a range of projects and topics.
I now specialise in working with those who work in academia and the professions: law, medicine, accounting, engineering, architecture, education, journalism and consulting.
I typically work with high potential professionals who want to improve their performance and productivity. My clients are often those who have been identified for possible promotion or been selected to participate in a leadership development program. Some clients want to make a career transition out of their field of expertise or they might want to return to work after a period of leave, illness or incapacity.
A focus of my recent work has been on helping professionals to build their inner resilience and wellbeing, particularly in the face of increased change and complexity in the workplace.
Importantly, I bring a strong evidence-based approach to my work, backed by hands-on experience in working with highly trained professionals across all industries.
