As a career consultant and coach, I enjoy challenging the status quo and providing inspiring yet pragmatic ideas, guidance and advice to people as they navigate the opportunities and obstacles of their careers.

I work with organisations to help their people to identify their professional strengths, articulate the roles they play at work, explore possibilities and options, and take the next step of their careers.

Areas I get involved include the following:

  • Career transition + change

  • Talent assessment + selection

  • Career progression

  • Outplacement + job search

  • Individual coaching

  • Workshop facilitation
