By following the paths of others and not creating her own (and working her butt off in the process), Samantha realised her creativity and reach were restricted in a corporate environment. The corporate world was no longer meeting her needs. Samantha had her epiphany moment and decided then and there she needed to take a leap and step forward into growth and not backward into safety. She needed to escape the corporate trap. She needed to ditch the ladder. She needed to create her own path and run her own show in business.
With her passion to train, coach and mentor others, Samantha has taken her experience from the corporate world, and her learnings from going it alone in the business space, to help others survive and thrive. As a ‘corporate escapee’ Samantha now wears different hats in business in both the training/consulting space and coaching/mentoring space. All hats involve encouraging others to work smarter not harder, focus on their strengths and be creative and innovative.
With her cool, calm, collected wisdom and demeanour, Samantha incorporates values around achievement, challenge, developing others, variety, innovation, reputation, reliability, competence, enthusiasm, being productive and community contribution into life and business.
Samantha enjoys spending time with those that count – partner, family and friends. Samantha enjoys sampling good food, wine and coffee and enacts her creative side by cooking when she has time. A good run or pilates class or game of lawn bowls clears her head. She also has a passion for writing and reading which she engages in daily. Having grown up in Sydney, Samantha loves being outdoors, watching sport and enjoying what this grand city has to offer. Samantha also enjoys travelling to other places for new adventures and to experience other cultures.
In 2016, Samantha will marry into the rugby fraternity when she ties the knot with partner, Adrian Moose Skeggs.
