Business & Career Change Consultant, Writer, Speaker

I’m a change enabler, a strengths exploiter, and an active advocate for the ‘smarter not harder’ approach to business, career and life. The journey to ‘what I want to be’ has been both fruitful and challenging, and is of course, an ongoing one.

It’s a journey that has inspired me to consult, write, speak, coach, and train on business change and career change. I do this for the uninitiated and the experienced, the curious and the indifferent, and the bold and the apprehensive. A broad spectrum I know, but that’s because change is personal, change is emotional, and change impacts all of us, whether by choice or not. Change is a constant in business and life and is happening at an accelerating pace.

Throughout my 20 year career I have supported some of the biggest and well known brands (including PricewaterhouseCoopers, Qantas and NBN Co) in the areas of change management, employee engagement and continuous improvement. It was during this time that I had several epiphany moments. Change programs fail when the people aren’t brought on the journey. People don’t need to be managed through change. They need to be guided, engaged and inspired by brave, authentic and influential leaders.

I have also made many pivots, transitions and daring leaps in my career which have all led to personal growth, empowerment and fulfilment. My career pursuits have included being a: chartered accountant, business analyst, program manager, operations manager, business improvement specialist, engagement manager and a change lead, across varying industries including financial services, HR, IT, telco and aviation.

The experiences, lessons learnt and outcomes from adding value to businesses going through change, as well as my own career transitions, compelled me to help both businesses and individuals to also achieve positive change.I am the founder of businesses with a focus on change. From a business change perspective, my purpose is to help business leaders engage their people when embarking on change programs. From a career change perspective, my purpose is to help people wanting to make a career change.

I am a member of the International Coach Federation, Professional Speakers Australia, and an accredited human behaviour assessor (Business DNA Behaviour), and hence have the ability to provide additional value to assist leaders and participants in transition, mentoring, and the learning process. With my Lean Six Sigma (Black Belt) and Chartered Accounting qualifications, I also bring an analytical and pragmatic approach to people and performance initiatives.

I enjoy spending time with those that count – hubby (Adrian ‘Moose’ Skeggs), family and friends. I enjoy sampling good food, wine and coffee and I enact my creative side by cooking when I have time. A good run or pilates class or game of lawn bowls clears my head. I have a passion for writing and reading which I engage in daily. Having grown up in Sydney, what’s not to like about being outdoors, watching sport and enjoying what this grand city has to offer? I also enjoy travelling to other places for new adventures and to experience other cultures.
