I often ask people if there is one word that describes what you do, I am always fascinated by the response. My word without a doubt is connection. I am extremely curious when it comes to connection, what it does and how it affects everything we come in contact with. So looking back on my journey to date there is no surprise connection has my attention.
Connection has got me to this point and will get me to where I am going. Since returning to New Zealand in 2009 I have been fortunate to work in this space. A lot of my work has been online focused. However more recently, I have combined this experience to support professionals that want to go on the journey to a more connected world.
Over the years I have trained thousands of professionals, worked hands-on with hundreds of small to medium sized businesses and supported some of New Zealand’s largest corporate brands. I have also led the online business networking training for national industry bodies such as the NZ and Australian Accountants, NZ Engineering and NZ Lawyers. My goal has always been to transfer skills, knowledge and wisdom to empower businesses to reach their full potential.
