Global Award Winning Executive Leadership Coach.

Global Head Office, Auckland, New Zealand


One thing that those who engage with me have in common is the hunger and desire to grow. They do not settle and they want results. 

What you will come to learn from me as your leadership or careeer coach is you are my sole focus.

We will speak confidentiality and candidly, our time together will be about you (not me), we will build trust quickly so we can get to work.

Developing yourself effectively as a leader will help not only yourself but those you serve.

Everyone needs a coach – who’s yours?



“Every organisation has the massive potential to achieve great things and it starts with its leaders” Nick Roud


As One Door Closes……..

In his mind he had missed out 3 times to the CEO role. He felt the door was firmly closed. Little did he know!


Here are some approaches to outplacement that we offer and I might suggest greatly help professionals, these are based on my experience as a career coach:

3 Traps For Emerging Leaders To Avoid!

Having days and weeks full of meetings possibly isn’t the very best use of the emerging leaders time!

Meetings. Proactive or Reactive?

Today is not about outcome rather giving yourself time and permission to review your meetings effectiveness. Allow yourself time to reflect and as you read keep asking yourself ‘am I being effective with my use of time’. Being effective is not about avoidance. 

Is There A Reason Why People Lead?

Some 80% of your life is spent working. You want to have fun at home; why shouldn’t you have fun at work?” Richard Branson

Your Peer Relationships, Are You Enabling Or Destroying It?

When we look at a highly effective team we notice, calm, common purpose; each with the ability to bring their thoughts, observations and suggestions, trust, love, a deep desire for all to be doing well, no hidden agendas and total focus on the future direction. 

Leading People

Leadership isn’t a sprint race, sure there are expectations on you but its not a race. As you start to notice what is actually going on around you only then will you be able to make formed decisions.

Why We Should Hire More Grey Hairs?

Whilst organisations all around the world are grappling with and fighting for talent my guiding principle is, don’t underestimate the huge benefits to your organisation and people that grey hairs bring!

Success, Is Their A Definitive Conclusion To It?

To be so called successful in leadership I believe it comes back to being very much ok in who you are. The rest takes care of itself.

Invest In Emerging Leaders?

No one is ever ready to step into a bigger role, we all have phases of excitement, fears apprehension, self doubt
