I am a Consultant, Coach, Writer, Public Speaker, Trainer, Facilitator, Sailor, Puppy Owner, Reader, Music Aficionado, Wine Lover, Runner, Traveller, Adventurer...and I was Crew of Dare to Lead on the 2017/2018 Clipper Round The World Yacht Race.
That’s the short story. The longer version goes like this:
I’m entranced by people who strive to make the world a better place and hope that I will leave a happy mark too. I work primarily in digital and mental health because I want to launch and grow companies with products and services that make a tangible and positive difference in people’s lives.
I revel in the things my senses tell me – that deep wet-earth smell of a forest; the scent of jasmine wafting through a hot summer’s evening; the sun on your skin and the wind in your hair; tasting salt on your lips. Focussing on what is “real” in this world is how I get results - happy people, great products and delighted customers!
I’m a “yes man” but not in a sycophantic way…being a critical thinker is a core part of being me. My “yes” is to the experience of life. I want to grab it by the scruff of its neck and squeeze out every last drop of adventure. Which is why I strive to make my professional and personal experiences both varied and interesting. I’m naturally curious and enjoy learning new things. I love a challenge.
So go on then, how can I help you?
How I can help...
Over the last two decades I’ve worked with organisations of all shapes and sizes to translate their growth strategies and drive delivery. Internally, by fostering a healthy, engaged and productive workforce. Externally, by successfully establishing and driving adoption of a product or service offering. My focus is always towards driving brand value and ensuring commercial success.
You want your health-focussed business to scale and grow. You want a viable business that delights your customers.

Clipper round the world yacht race
I have loved sailing ever since I stepped onto a dinghy in Albany, Western Australia in 1995. I spent as much time as possible from then on, trying to find ways onto the water. I walked away from that to do the sensible thing in building a career. In 2017, it was time to go back to do something completely and utterly about my love for the sea. My Dad instilled in me a spirit of adventure and so off I went to become one of 700 people per race who achieve something remarkable. Courage is contagious...
