Born and raised in Adelaide, South Australia, I started my career as a graduate with ANZ Bank, and eventually left my home town to develop my career with the bank’s Group Human Resources area, in Melbourne. 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.
After I returned to Australia, I joined Mt Eliza Business School – now the executive education arm of Melbourne Business School, where I developed and delivered customised leadership 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.
Since that time, 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 majoring in 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 a preferred supplier for Career Money Life, and an accredited facilitator of MBTI, Birkman, and Skillscope.
