How do we find purpose and meaning in the work we do and the lives we live?

    This is the question that drives me.

    As a science-trained business nerd I value how creative problem-solving can help us overcome what from the outset may seem "impossible".

    I'm currently undertaking further studies with the Australian Institute of Professional Counselling and James Cook University to become a qualified counsellor and career practitioner.

    I decided to do this because so much of the work we do in business is about overcoming the imposter syndrome, dealing with feelings of self-doubt and making informed decisions that are best for ourselves, our people and the world around us.

    If you're looking for inspiration, motivation and help on how to lead your own purpose driven project or enterprise for your own business or someone else's, read my article on the entrepreneurship mindset and the power of business science.

    You can also check out my podcast show Purpose Driven.

    Do you offer one-on-one business coaching online?

    Yes, in addition to my R.I.S.E, G.R.O.W & L.E.A.D programs I offer one-on-one coaching sessions to entrepreneurs. If you'd like to find out more about this, simply reach out to me on LinkedIn.

    Are you a speaker, presenter or moderator?

    I speak and present on a range of topics at virtual and in-person events.

    I also provide moderating services for speakers and podcasters on clubhouse, via livestream and for pre-recorded events.

    If you're a thought leader or you're an event manager, agency, studio, videographer or production company who works with thought leaders, then there could be some cool ways for us to collaborate!

    Will you come and talk on my podcast show as a guest?

    Most likely - yes! If you're looking for a guest on your podcast and your show is a good fit for what I talk about then I'm more than happy to join you on your podcast show or LinkedIn Live recording, just send me a message and let’s chat :)

    How can I be a guest on your show?
