My Experience /

Business Coach & Mentor

Like many people when I was starting my career, I had no real idea or clear plan on what I wanted to do for the rest of my life!

After leaving school, I went to university and graduated with a Bachelor of Economics. From there I pursued a career in accounting that led me to work for leading accounting firms across three continents. Whilst I achieved great success with these firms, I was very aware that a career in accounting was not my true passion. As a result, I commenced the search for a career which would ignite my passion to live a more fulfilled life.

What followed was a diverse career spanning more than 30 years, working with a range of dynamic and complex organisations in both the commercial and not for profit sectors. Throughout this time, I struggled with many of the same thoughts and emotions you may be experiencing now.

  • Feelings of being overwhelmed and exhausted
  • Working harder than ever for less return
  • Unsettled with the direction my career was going
  • Unsure of my purpose
  • Continually doubting the choices I was making
  • Frustrated with not knowing what the next steps were

Facing up to and dealing with these thoughts and emotions provides me with great insight, empathy and a true understanding of the struggles you are facing in business and life. My passion is to utilise my experiences to empower you to clarify your purpose and take the necessary steps towards a more inspired and fulfilled life.
