Senior Innovation Coach

What do you do at &us?

I unlock the potential within teams to see themselves as solution providers to bring about the growth ambition achievable within their organisation. 

I love innovative concepts and challenging organisations to see beyond the norm and question what can be achieved.

I engage in coaching, making and the strategy to birth solutions that galvanise organisations to provide human-centric solutions.

What do you care about most in your work?

I love seeing people realise their true potential and how that translates into assets within their internal and external environment.  

I love it when teams collectively achieve challenging goals and the confidence they develop to solve future ones in an effective and systematic way.

I care about how organisations I work with allow their teams to develop a deep sense of belonging to owning the problem and the solutions that come through our working together.

What did you do prior to &us?

I worked as a business and innovation consultant with a wide range of organisations for many years.  My role entailed helping organisations explore new opportunities and challenging them to think outside the box to birth new solutions.  My multi-faceted role allowed me to help clients manage their innovation pipeline and growth ambitions by exploring their customers’ needs, gathering and analysing insights, and working with them to develop customer-centric products and services.  

What do you do for fun outside of work?

I love spending time with my family and eating out (as much as my body will allow). Also delving into a personal development book in my favourite corner at home.  

I love helping people realise their hidden potential by encouraging them to discover and develop their talents and skills.  You may find me talking to someone somewhere and doing just that in my spare time.  

What you might not know about me? 

I am the author of the book ‘How to Package Your Passion’ which gives me the opportunity to encourage people to maximise their true potential.
