I know what it’s like; I’ve been there. I’m still there, leading, advising and coaching individuals and teams to achieve breakthrough performance with some of the biggest brands and greatest thinkers in Canada – from CTV, Cadbury and Loblaw to Seneca College. For 20 years, I’ve helped leaders with bold goals – for themselves and their teams – make them a reality.

I started as an HR business partner, navigating the intricacies of benefits plans and compensation structures, employee relations, recruitment, org design, and all other facets of people management. I too had to kick and scratch for funding to pay for much needed learning and development programs, many of which I ultimately designed in-house. As I worked my way through the manufacturing, packaged goods, media and retail industries, I realized I was developing an affinity for leadership and talent management. I went on to lead the Learning and Talent Development function for Canada’s largest retailer, including all training solutions and learning technology enablement for 190,000 colleagues across the country. I led teams, large and small, in the delivery of learning solutions from the requirements phase through pilot, implementation and into rollout. I managed multi-million dollar budgets. And I facilitated dozens of soft skills training programs on every possible priority leadership competency out there. I get it. I am you.

Today my focus is on helping shape high performing individuals and teams across a myriad of industries, to make great things happen at work. We spend so much time there – let’s make it amazing!
