Download Resume

I am all about solving problems, strategizing ideas and initiatives and implementing change. I aim to enhance organisational performance by deciphering issues and designing more efficient and effective working procedures. I have an aptitude for client handling, facilitation, strategic planning, business analysis and team-building.

My approach to my work is creative, flexible and thorough. I am deadline driven, thrive in fast paced environments and am comfortable with high pressure situations.

I am a patient but firm manager and enjoy onboarding and mentoring junior staff. I have a gregarious nature and a dry sense of humour.

My Services

Business process reengineering


By plotting clients’ as-is business processes through mapping workshops and group facilitation, I am able to develop more efficient and effective policies and procedures. Through these methodologies I provide improved role clarity and defined levels of authority, as well as more streamlined process solutions to build better organisations.

Organisational design


Role clarifications, redefined reporting lines and capacity assessments are natural outcomes from organisational analysis. I have honed my skills around understanding how a company structure plays a pivotal role in effective performance and am comfortable with defining and implementing structural solutions for organisations.

Project & programme management


My methodical approach to projects makes for effective management of multiple streams of work and stakeholders. I also have a comfortable hold on highly political pieces of work where not all stakeholders are in agreement.

Financial modelling


My analytical side goes into overdrive when it comes to Excel. I have extensive knowledge and experience in designing and developing Excel models and dashboards to suit clients’ needs, including financial costing and forecast models, academic planning models and research output models.

Strategy development


My ability to ask the right questions and think broadly and creatively about my clients' issues and ideas has made for an adept ability for strategic planning.

Facilitation


My ability to listen, ask the right questions and develop personalised solutions makes for natural facilitation which I use as a tool to workshop ideas, map business processes, mitigate risks and work through organisational issues.

Implementation


Helping clients does not end with the handing over of solutions or plans for change. I work closely with organisations to guide them through implementation journeys.

Change management


With any change comes the need for stakeholder buy-in. Through well-defined communication plans, staff facilitation and consultation processes, I help organisations overcome difficult change journeys.

Public speaking


I readily make myself available to talk to audiences of various types on an array of topics. Some examples include "Women in business", "Turning science degrees into business careers" and "How to find your niche".

Projects

MY EXPERIENCE

I have run and been involved in an array of high impact projects.

Having worked with many clients, I have developed an ability to adapt quickly and efficiently to each of their needs.

I work hard not only to create specific solutions for clients, but also to guide them through the implementation steps required to achieve their goals in the most effective manner.
