➔ Brought together previously disparate teams to unify their approach to clients and work towards shared objectives

➔ Achieved a fast rate of business growth and strengthened the capabilities and commitment of their leaders and managers to improve client relationships, team performance, innovation, communication and succession planning for the business

Expertise:

➔ Vision and strategic planning
➔ Leadership Development
➔ New Leader Assimilation
➔ Change Management (engagement-based approaches)
➔ Advanced selling skills, value selling and developing a Trusted Advisor approach
➔ Team Development (including a range of profiling tools)
➔ Establishing a high performance Culture and Climate Change
➔ Employee Engagement
➔ Performance and achievement Improvement
➔ Executive Coaching and/or mentoring

TRIVIA: I also wrote a thesis on avocados and had a pet Rhinoceros – but you have to buy me a beer or a coffee to hear that story.
