CIQ Certified Coach

Words create worlds – conversations connect them.


I facilitate conversations that matter, with Leaders and Teams who are on a mission, and are serious about achieving business results.


People Focus is a boutique consultancy organization, we work with people, teams and organizations to improve business results.


For us, this work is about unlocking the leader within, activating potential, helping people to:


  • Show up with intention
  • Be present
  • Connect with people
  • Have the conversations that matter
  • Build great teams
  • Do good work
  • Co-create your future


It’s about ensuring that good work gets done, people are successful, results are achieved.


I design and facilitate leadership and performance:


  • Conversations
  • Workshops
  • Programmes
  • Quipping people with practical insights, tools, frameworks and skills for everyday use


I coach people and teams to reflect, learn and grow. To use their insights, tools and frameworks, to build their skills and confidence, to follow through and achieve their goals.


These tools and frameworks come from a wide range of fields including; conversational intelligence (CI-Q), emotional intelligence (EQ), leadership, management, learning and development, and performance delivery.


We design tools to help close the gap between theory and action, between intention and impact.


With a 25-year career as an entrepreneur, leader, and consultant my approach is practical and commercial – doing business with a people focus.


I am known for my focused and energetic style, with the ability to quickly build connection and credibility, developing enduring relationships.


I am quick to understand context and situations by asking insightful questions and listening carefully to the answers.


I take a strategic approach to working with you, mapping things out, hatching bright ideas and co-creating innovative solutions that are just right for you and your business. I partner with you to follow through on your roadmap and plan.
