I provide straightforward, reliable and cost-effective advice on developing organisations and people. I have specific and extensive expertise in workplace review, change management, planning, and people development.
I help big and small organisations of all kinds by:
- facilitating problem-solving and planning workshops
- reviewing organisational structures and processes
- improving the effectiveness of work groups
- advising on internal and external communication
- designing and delivering tailored training
- managing projects
- coaching and mentoring senior staff.
I work mainly in higher education and health care, but regularly have other government, not-for-profit and private sector clients. I’m currently working with clients in secondary and higher education, health care, aged care, housing, and international education.
I’m based in Adelaide, but have work in Sydney, Canberra, Brisbane and Perth. I’m happy to travel, and always keep expenses to a minimum.
If I’m not the right person for your job, I’ll tell you. I can often recommend someone who is. If I need help, I work with partners I trust to do a great job.
As well as my consulting work, I have a particular interest and expertise in writing skills development. I manage this through my company Cool Rules [for writers]. Cool Rules offers informative, effective and enjoyable workshops on business writing topics including:
- business writing basics
- minute taking
- report writing
- writing business cases
- speech writing
- editing and proofreading
- structural editing
Enough about me. Let’s talk about you.
