Areas of expertise

Strategy

I am passionate about talking strategy and enjoy spending time with other leaders and entrepreneurs to talk to them about their strategies, strengths and weaknesses, of course over a coffee or three.

Leadership

I take pride in the leadership I have displayed in my relationships: professional & personal. Identifying, coaching & growing leadership qualities in others inspires me to be a better leader myself.

Team development

The teams I have built are effective, productive & supportive of the business and each other. They are truly my greatest accomplishments and I am immensely proud of what they have achieved!

Change management

At the core of what my businesses do and my coffee discussions with other leaders is a desire to inspire and motivate the community around me to change for the better.

Offshoring and BPO

Through my operational roles, I have been tasked with building a number of offshored teams, and the people I met, and the difference I made to their lives inspired Change Fox.

SDLS & agile

I have spent the majority of my career working in the software development industry and understand the complexities of delivering a product to market and servicing customers.
