It's fair to say I've had a varied career and I'm excited to be able to share insights and ideas from my own adventure to help kick-start and develop yours.
Life is full of opportunities. With an open mind, enthusiasm and the drive to have a go, anything is possible.
My career adventure began in manufacturing where I worked as an industrial chemist. Having been bitten by the business bug I moved into commercial and business roles; reaching executive level.
I got bored and frustrated with the corporate phase of my career and decided to use my product, business and people development combo to start my own positive wave.
So I left my board-level role and set off on my own entrepreneurial path. Via jewellery, business mentoring and talent development, I found my true purpose. Inspiring and supporting professionals and professionals-in-waiting on their career adventures.
