I spent the first phase of my career with ANZ Bank in Adelaide, Mount Gambier and Melbourne, where I built the foundations of my HR career. After accepting a redundancy package in the early 1990s, I worked as an executive recruitment consultant before moving to the UK to complete an MBA.
Shortly after returning to Australia, I joined Mt Eliza Business School – now the executive education arm of Melbourne Business School, where I managed leadership development programs for corporate and government clients. I left Mt Eliza to join the Leadership and People Development practice at Nous Group before establishing my own business, Dunelm Consulting, in 2005.
I’ve been engaged as a consultant, facilitator, feedback coach and career mentor for various corporate, public sector and not-for-profit organisations. As an Associate with Right Management in Melbourne and Adelaide, I’ve worked extensively with professionals experiencing career transition and change. I’ve also delivered executive recruitment consulting and leadership development services on behalf Bendelta, Beilby (OPRA), iedex Management Consultants, Jo Fisher Executive and Horner Recruitment.
My first degree was a BA (Psychology & Geography) from the University of Adelaide. I later completed a MA (Modern European Studies) at Monash University, and MBA at Durham University Business School UK.
I’m now managing my own career transition, and commence a Bachelor of Nursing in 2020.
