I have an innate curiosity and interest in people. I am not afraid to be a contrarian, to challenge assumptions and beliefs which may be holding someone back and preventing them from achieving not just their goals but their DREAMS.
I partner with clients in an exciting and creative process, setting clear goals and actions and holding them accountable to achieving them – thereby ensuring that my clients effectively and efficiently achieve results and success.
As each client is unique, I do not subscribe to a ‘one size fits all’ philosophy – my coaching is tailor-made to address each client’s individual personal and professional needs so as to empower them to achieve success.
Prior to becoming a coach, I practiced law for over 20 years. I am a dual-qualified (United Kingdom and South Africa) lawyer with broad commercial and corporate legal experience and expertise. I have worked internationally and locally in top-tier law firms in the UK and South Africa and as senior and general legal counsel for various organisations – including a multi-national publicly listed global bank, a privately-held asset management company, a publicly-listed investment management company and an innovative digital fintech.
A highly agile coach, lawyer and mediator confident working at all levels of management and competent at managing, and assisting my clients to manage, change and achieve success no matter the situation.
With strong communication and relationship-building skills, I work with my clients to build more effective and enriching relationships – whether with their colleagues, stakeholders or clients.
Having lead and managed cross-border, cross-functional teams and projects, recognises the importance of working collaboratively and motivating and developing others – creating more beneficial, productive and ultimately profitable careers and relationships.
