My key passion is challenging people to grow and transform – not only individually, but collectively within organisations. In my experience, it is not about constantly gaining new knowledge but helping people to reflect about removing and transforming outdated thinking and beliefs, so they can own their own path and be accountable for the way they live and perform.”
