I focus on helping small to medium business leaders get exceptional results by making good leadership simpler to grasp and easier to implement.
After a successful military and corporate career in multiple countries, I took a sabbatical to revitalise myself and built a consulting business, whilst completely on the road in Latin America.
Several years on, I now coach, mentor and facilitate leaders from organisations all over the world, with my passion being in the small to medium business arena.
I am basically like an electrician who helps you connect the wires and turns on the lightbulbs in your head so things become clear and you can max your performance with your team or business. I focus on 2 simple things - Mindset and Method. If we get these two things correct, time and time again, we see increased engagement, productivity and results.
I simply take the lessons I learned in corporate life, an MBA and working with global organisations, and combine them with starting a successful small remote business.
I help you navigate the challenges that the virtual, post COVID world brings, by sharing how I worked through them with you, so you can deliver the type of results you wish you could unlock on your own.
