I lead the team that partners with Australia’s top organisations as they support the careers of their people with integrity and respect.

To best support our clients as they manage everyday organisational turbulence, I draw on my 30 years of experience in human resource management and organisational development, much of this time spent as a member of executive teams. I have also been privileged to coach many of the outstanding executive leaders in Directioneering’s alumni at critical points in their careers.

During my own career journey, I have held senior roles with Ford, National Mutual Life Association, Coles Myer, Pacifica Group and Medibank Private. In my role as Group Executive, People, Culture & Communications at Medibank, I was responsible for all aspects of human resource management as well as corporate social responsibility and external and internal communications.

I understand first-hand the challenges that many organisations face managing teams that are geographically diverse and what this means for individual careers. Whilst based in Australia, I have had responsibility for local and regional teams and have worked extensively in Asia, North America, Italy and on the establishment of a joint venture Greenfield facility in China.

I have acquired a strong understanding of the challenges that organisations face through significant involvement in planning, restructuring and change management associated with diversification, acquisitions and the sale of businesses. I also bring my experience reporting to and advising Board Committees and Boards on matters that include executive remuneration, non-executive remuneration, leadership development, succession planning and health, safety and environment.

I am adept at gaining the commitment of executive teams, using my coaching expertise to engage them in improving their teamwork and developing their leadership effectiveness.
