My aspiration is to contribute to the development of insightful leaders who can rise to the challenges of enabling maintainable human performance and sustainable, successful organisations in the 21st century. In particular, I have immersed myself in building and deepening leadership practice, through customised leadership programmes and executive team interventions, with the explicit intention of developing work that is on the cutting edge of executive education globally.
Relationships are central to my approach, both in the learning experiences and beyond. To this end, I collaborate with a small team of international practitioners, facilitators and coaches to deliver these processes in Africa, North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia. The company is grounded in principles that encourage it to be agile and lean in its design and structure.
I have been working as a facilitator for over two decades and I am privileged to be doing work that has consistently inspired, motivated and challenged me. I am driven by an aspiration to constantly stretch the boundaries of what learning can deliver and in service of this, I seek to achieve greater mastery of process design and facilitation. I am passionate about excellence and I am committed to rigorous disciplines in both design and delivery to enable a seamless elegance to each learning experience.
I have a Masters in Drama from the University of Cape Town, which inspired my passion for process design and facilitation, and I have undertaken postgraduate studies in systems thinking for organisational leadership which has added a further cornerstone to the way in which I work today.
Over the years I have worked with corporate organisations, government structures, non-governmental organisations and community based organisations. Working with these different organisations has been an invaluable experience in learning to understand the particular dynamics and challenges of different organisations and to tailor interventions specific to the needs of the context and the client.
Moving forward, I continue to focus on how to contribute to the development of insightful leaders who can meet the challenges of enabling maintainable human performance and sustainable, successful organisations in the 21st century.
