About Us

We understand the impact that a leader has on a business. For over 20 years we have seen first-hand the rise and fall of businesses because of the quality of the executive talent within them. Poor leadership encourages discontentment, expands the productivity gap, and decelerates the growth of your career and business. When you do not focus on your own leadership capabilities and those of your team, you can immobilize your business and your career. By focusing on unearthing extraordinary leadership, you can futureproof your business and accelerate your career trajectory.

As a business your competitive advantage is your employees, specifically your leaders. The people you have chosen to lead your business have given you the success you are experiencing today, and it will be the leaders you choose to hire and retain in the future that will accelerate that success. We understand that engaging and retaining high-quality talent is essential for outstanding business performance.  By attracting, recruiting, and retaining extraordinary leaders your business will succeed. 

As an individual your competitive advantage is you. The effort and focus you put into developing your capabilities will help you create a successful and sustainable career. Executive positions are in high demand. With so much competition it is important to stand out from other executives to get noticed and be selected for the career defining job opportunities.

We help organizations find the extraordinary leaders that lead their business to remarkable success by inspiring their people and transforming their performance.  

We help leaders transform their careers by unearthing their capabilities to create the extraordinary opportunities to be noticed and selected for the jobs that will accelerate their career.

We believe that every business deserves to be successful and that every individual deserves to succeed in their career.

I have dedicated my career to the success of the workforce and have enjoyed over 20 years attracting, recruiting, and retaining talent for start-up and scale-up companies, small to medium enterprises, through to multinational organizations within the healthcare, digital health, medical technology, biotechnology, and pharmaceutical industries.

For over 20 years I have been partnering with employers, executives, and professionals. I have coached people throughout their careers, helping them to unearth their potential and get access to the jobs that have advanced their executive careers. I have consulted with organizations as they pivot and scale, helping them to attract, recruit, and retain the high-quality leadership talent that have accelerated their organizational performance and competitive advantage.

I am a personnel problem-solver, head-hunter, and confidante to the aspiring. I take pride in identifying and unearthing ability, commitment, and entrepreneurial souls.

My extensive qualifications in psychology, organisational coaching, and professional career coaching give me the foundations to unearth the potential in people and leadership performance.
