Strategy - Facilitation - Engagement - Recruitment

Services

Strategic direction, planning, collaborative design and community engagement

I specialise in supporting the design and development of long term strategies with for-purpose Boards and organisations, including a review of existing plans and co-devising new initiatives. I can help you articulate an ambitious vision underpinned by a realistic, timely, and achievable roadmap.

Planning days and sessions are vital to the success of any project or organisation. As a facilitator, I bring an approachable and curious communication style, alongside extensive content knowledge across governance, strategy, partnerships, policy, compliance, creative processes and audience development, commercial activity, and industry development.

Executive recruitment, mentoring and coaching, team-building and conflict resolution

I have a range of established and sophisticated capabilities in human resource management, including team dynamics, cultural analysis, resource mapping, performance management, and supporting people to realise their full potential.

I specialise in executive and senior leader recruitment in the creative and cultural industries. My extensive networks across Australia enable me to identify a strong field of candidates for your role, with a particular focus on diversity and an approachable, accessible recruitment experience for both your organisation and potential staff.

Through my one-on-one or collective coaching and mentoring work, I bring a human-centered approach to supporting people to succeed in their roles and workplace. I have a particular focus on providing executive role support. Working with executives and leaders, I support leaders to be courageous, generous, and productive.

CLIENTS

Program design, stakeholder engagement, context analysis and evaluation

I bring a wealth of experience with co-design and systems thinking processes. My approach is future-focussed, assessing and translating trends as they emerge. This is enhanced by my experience of designing pathways to change. And to be sure we’re achieving what we set out to, I develop and implement a range of evaluation frameworks and tools to measure progress as we go.

I can also undertake detailed analysis and evaluation planning for your organisation or project. This includes desktop research of relevant strategies, plans, policies and programs nationally and internationally. I will identify best practice, complementary efforts, integration opportunities, and synthesise these key findings for both internal and external stakeholders.
