Since 2002 I have been involved in the nonprofit sector, aged care and healthcare sectors within Australia and New Zealand as a board member, manager, consultant, mentor, managemen coach and management trainer. The past two decades have provided me with a comprehensive insight into these sectors and equips me to provide guidance, advice and help to managers.
I understand that while your organisation exists to help those in need, your responsibility is to first and foremost operate a viable and sustainable business, while answering to multiple stakeholders.
I began my journey as a mentor to senior executives and a management coach to front line managers and eventually morphed into a general purpose consulting firm. From 2006-09 I was the founding Executive Director for Community Southwest Ltd, an alliance of not-for-profit agencies based in south-west Victoria, and during 2017/18 I was Operations Manager and Acting-CEO for Gunditjmara Aboriginal Cooperative.
Over the years I have been a mentor to CEO’s, provided coaching to more than 400 executives and frontline managers, created and facilitated workshops in leadership and project management, created and delivered a professional development program in frontline management for nonprofit managers and delivered seminars in future trends. I have provided guidance and advice on best practice governance, executive recruitment, human resources, digital strategies, organisational mergers, fundraising, community engagement, workplace conflict, service delivery reviews and capacity development.
