With a wealth of experience and expertise, I've excelled in various fields, including transformation, change management, learning, training, communications, and benefits realization.

My educational services are grounded in experiential learning methodologies, with a keen focus on leadership, change, team dynamics, and communication, both in tertiary and workplace settings.

My academic journey led me to earn a Master's degree in Learning Science and Technology, with a research emphasis on enhancing patient efficacy through patient education. I hold professional memberships in various fields, including organisational psychology, coaching, professional supervision, adult education, and training.
One of my significant contributions emerges from my extensive research during my Ph.D. studies, resulting in the development of the MQ Meeting Intelligence framework.
