I am a former Broker Sales Manager and an Operations Manager who is now working as a leadership coach, consultant and strategist across four key areas:
- Leadership of successful teams
- Optimisation of mental performance
- Leadership psychology
- High performing teams
Within these areas, I design, coach and facilitate bespoke leadership development programmes for individuals and teams including managers of all levels, directors, executives, professional athletes and aspiring leaders. My clients include the Delegates of the European Union, The Fred Hollows Foundation in Timor-Leste, the Fiji Sun newspaper, Lakes DHB, Kmart and Foodstuffs.
I am listed by Evan Carmichael as one of the top 100 leadership experts in the world to follow on Twitter.
When I design leadership programmes I draw from my twenty five years of managerial experience across a range of industries in the United Kingdom and here in New Zealand. I am accepted in the MBTI suite of tools and I am a professional member of NZAPT (New Zealand Association of Psychological Type) NZIM (New Zealand Institute of Management) and NZATD (New Zealand Association of Training & Development). I am a published author of two leadership books and I've had articles published in a range of magazines including Lifestyle for Men Magazine, M2, New Zealand Management Magazine as well as having a weekly business column with the Fiji Sun Newspaper. I am the current editor of Elite Leadership magazine.

If you are a regular reader of my articles then you would already be aware of my opinion that the traditional model of performance reviews is outdated. The process in which Managers sit down with their staff every six months to formally record and evaluate their performance no longer works and the larger the organisation the more outdated the process is and it just simply does not work. So what's next?Posted: Monday 30 October 2017
An internship programme if done correctly can be of great value to both parties, the intern and the organisation recruiting the interns. In this article I'm going to explore what needs to happen in order to make internships work.Posted: Monday 23 October 2017
I've noticed a strange trend in the business world. It seems that when a company has an employee that is a high performer and is getting through a large amount of work, the only way the company knows how to reward them is by giving them more work. Usually more difficult and challenging work too. Yet across the office is most likely sitting a co-worker who is struggling and not performing so well and what typically happens to that individual is they have work taken away from them.Posted: Monday 16 October 2017
When you hear the word Coach you most likely think of someone in sport. Maybe someone like Ben Ryan perhaps, who guided the Fijian sevens team to Olympic Gold or Steve Hansen, the current Coach of the All Blacks. Both people who are regarded as World-Class coaches who have developed their players and achieved high levels of success. Now the business world is taking these valuable lessons from the world of sports and bringing these coaching skills into the workplace.Posted: Monday 9 October 2017
The sales team is the life blood of any business. They are like the wingers of a rugby team. No matter how much work you do around the park, you need your wingers to take the ball across the try line to get the points on the board. Sales is important, yet I'm always astonished at how many companies make the same fundamental mistake and this mistake is costing companies a lot of money in lost sales.Posted: Monday 2 October 2017
