I am a passionate corporate governance change leader who shapes, drives and implements ‘right sized’ governance policy and related frameworks and processes holistically in businesses. 

Having worked in both the private and public sector with a career that spans well over two decades in governance at varying levels, I have defined, rejuvenated and co-created governance frameworks and processes enabling sound, probity-rich and effective decision-making in organisations.  I have done this through advising Chairs, Boards, Committees, Managing Directors and Executives on how to implement heart centred corporate governance, enabling active and adaptive management approaches to aid in delivery of their business strategy.

I am very passionate about coaching, guiding and providing thought leadership to Boards, Executive Management and governance professionals.  I relish the opportunity to support the continuous improvement of their personal effectiveness and mindsets to enable the delivery of co-created governance within their organisation at both strategic and operational levels.

I hold a Master’s Degree in Management, a Postgraduate Diploma of Applied Corporate Governance from the Governance Institute and am a graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors, Company Directors Intensive Course. 

I am also a certified Neuro Linguistic Programming Coaching Practitioner and a Fellow of both the Governance Institute and the Australian Institute of Company Directors and I am a member of the Australian Board of Neuro Linguistic Programming.
