My 'Why' is to inspire a movement towards truly people-centred organizations. Organizations which see the person first and the employee second. A Coach, facilitator, and catalyst for positive change, I thrive on the challenge of making the world of work better and more humanized for people in organizations. I love networking and collaborating to share fresh ideas, insights and to learn. I have an in-depth knowledge and practical 'hands-on' experience of leading HR and Organizational Development projects. I am a visionary who rethinks what is possible when it comes to HR, leadership and the future of work, igniting positive change in others.

Throughout my HR career, ‘work-life balance’ comes up in discussions countless times. People have different interpretations of what work-life balance means. Whatever the views on work-life balance, it remains a hot topic for HR departments, given that a common...
The way in which we welcome new people into our organisations reveals a lot about our values and culture. The approach we take can make such a difference to how people feel.  If we humanise our approach through a warm...
Machine thinking is all around us. Organizations arrange themselves in divisional units and assign metrics to measure output.  We manage for efficiency, productivity, and compliance.  We treat work as a transactional exchange of wages for labor. Our organizations seek...
Throughout my HR career, 'work-life balance' has come up in discussions countless times. People have different interpretations of what work-life balance means.  Whatever the views on work-life balance, and how best to achieve it, the subject remains a hot...
We need to find the right ‘fit’.  It’s important the person ‘fits’ in with us. They need to ‘fit’ our culture and values.  You hear the word ‘fit’ frequently when it comes to hiring decisions. Let’s rethink this approach. Firstly,...
