I spent most of my 20 year career at Goldman Sachs as a Director where I was responsible for leading global teams and strategic initiatives around change and transformation, culture, governance and diversity. The role exposed me to incredibly varied, challenging and growth opportunities, including engagement with regulators and stakeholders in numerous jurisdictions, responding to critical events within financial markets, and developing and designing key programs around diversity and leadership development.
During my career I have been fortunate to lead, hire, coach, and mentor, and learn from many awesome purpose-led leaders and future leaders. However, while I loved the buzz of finance, I was often frustrated by the rate of progress and opportunity for some of the inspiring women around me.
At the peak of my career, whilst juggling a young family of 3, I hit an inflection point when I burnout out. I decided that something had to change - I needed to make my career work for my life and not the other way around. I knew that my own experience was not unique, and within a few months of leaving my job I was flooded with messages of very similar stories.
That set me on a journey, working with and speaking with hundreds of people, to understand the personal, organisational, and societal causes and drivers of lack of inclusion in workplaces. I qualified as an executive coach, and trained in the use of psychology, neuroscience, transaction analysis and NLP to identify some of the most leading edge approaches to help clients and teams make transformational progress in areas such as confidence, communication, impact and leadership. Nowadays I work with organisations that really want to make their workplace somewhere where everyone can thrive.
My mission is to help empower inclusive leadership, so that we ALL have the opportunity to realise our potential.
