Working with New Zealand’s Leading Organisations

Approach & Offerings

I weave my knowledge of intrinsic motivation and Complex Adaptive Systems into all I offer. 

There’s no one-size-fits-all approach. 

I partner with you to integrate these concepts into your context to increase engagement, innovation and effective decision-making. 

This is achieved through a mix of discovery work, workshops and check-in sessions (in-person or remote). 

I also associate with a few trusted partners to deliver value as a team on certain programmes of work (see partners further down page).

I would be delighted to work with you on one or a combination of the services below:


Change Resilience
& Agility

Let’s make effective decisions and thrive through a changing environment. We provide ways of thinking about motivation and approaching complexity to build resilience and agility in the face of unprecedented change.


Culture Shaping
& Engagement

Develop effective ways to understand and shape the evolutionary potential of your organisational culture towards greater engagement and effectiveness. We guide you through a process to continually monitor and influence culture for better outcomes.



Coaching is about having an outside voice ask questions to generate insight. Whether you have a specific challenge around leadership or want to be more effective in a certain area, coaching brings results.


Innovation Through

Capture and harness real-time insights from your organisation to understand where opportunities for innovation and increased effectiveness lie.
