I have had a remarkable career so far and have worked with a variety of outstanding people. They have taken me worldwide in many different industries and roles, and I consider myself fortunate for this and thankful to them all.

Constantly aware of my particular strengths, it took an excellent boss and a couple of mentors to draw them out and help me shape them. These are: enhanced reasoning and problem-solving skills to see the big picture, simplify the narrative and create brilliant teams to grow companies and deliver exceptional performance.  My world has always hinged on strategic delivery and figuring out how to change teams' mentality, human systems and processes for tomorrows world.

Perhaps most importantly, I would surround myself with far more gifted people in the nitty-gritty and specialisations than me. We've always focused on being bold and acting fast to capitalise on opportunities. Performance optimisation has always been the driving force for us all by asking one overriding question; How can we make it even better?

I love challenges, problems and ideological conflict.  I believe there is so much more in each of us, and our answers and solutions directly result from the quality and depth of the questions we ask.

My brain is wired to ask questions many would neglect to ask. I'm a lateral thinker and identify many alternatives as a matter of course. I am constantly seeking to understand and simplify complexity for everyone.

I have worked with Tech start-ups in security risk and healthcare, mega-projects in oil and gas, strategic projects in universities, set up several businesses, from Forestry to Tech and shaped many projects and leadership teams to have an unshakeable foundation and deliver unprecedented results.

My leading principles are integrity, courage and commitment.
