ICC Certified Trainers
Before founding ilume in April 2008, with my business partner, Raechel Ford, I ran my own successful coaching business for 14 years.
Typically my clients were large corporates, with the focus being on developing individual, team or entire organisations. Before coaching I led a successful 20 year global corporate career working in London for IBM, The Boots Company and Black & Decker. I then went on to Ogilvy and Mather Advertising, before joining Brierley Investments in New Zealand in a strategic leadership position. It was during this time that I discovered my talent for understanding the motivations of others and what it takes to create a successful high performing team.
Since then I have gone on to coach over 3,000 individuals in New Zealand, Australia and the United Kingdom, with the largest project coaching an organisation of over 400 leaders committed to changing a culture and developing individuals and teams internally. The project was deemed one of the most successful programs during the four years it ran.
A highlight of my coaching career was working with Antarctica New Zealand and travelling to Scott Base to work with both the winter and summer teams on their development.
I have recently attained the InterDevelopMental Institute (IDM) Certificate of Developmental Assessment in traditional behavioural coaching which is the equivalent to a Masters Degree, and I am currently studying towards the IDM Certificate of Master Certified Developmental Coach/Consultant. Most importantly of all, I absolutely love the work I do. I value the clients I work with, particularly as I see them take control of their lives and achieve new heights every day.
