SOME OF MY STORY | MENTORING & GUIDING
Personal Guide & Adviser | People Development | Emotional Intelligence & Communication | Wild Mind Mentor & Student | Business Ethics | Educator | Personal Growth Advocate
We all have a story and here’s a little bit about mine…. I’ve been doing what I do for a fairly long time. I love engaging with people and opening doorways to development. I am inspired by the ‘moments of grace’ that arise from guiding people toward personal insight and transformation – this inflection point is where ‘my great joy meets the world’s great need’.
I bring a diverse amalgam of human and organisational insight to my personal development, coaching, mentoring and consulting engagements.
I have extensive senior executive leadership and Board experience accumulated in large, complex corporate organisations. I was the Chief Audit Executive of Australia Post for many years, leading the Board’s Audit, Risk & Compliance program and transforming the company’s Internal Assurance service into a leadership development incubator. I was also a member of Australia Post’s Culture, Ethics and Risk Management Committees.
In parallel, personal enquiry, development and capacity building over 25 years has been an ongoing focus. In an era of cultural transition where the expectations of men and masculinity is an open question, I co-foundered Melbourne Men’s Group Inc, a not for profit, registered charity and volunteer led organisation with a collective and individual focus on community, personal growth, and wellbeing.
In that context, I design and facilitate contemporary human development programs including the Awakening the Conscious Man workshop and the Knowing the Conscious Man intensive. I have facilitated, coached and guided human development individually and collectively at hundreds of ‘talking circles’, workshops, breathwork programs and personal one to one sessions.
This is supplemented by depth development programs in the Cultivate Wholeness initiative – offering insight experiences inspired by the Soulcentric principles of the Nature Based Map of the Human Psyche – as developed by Bill Plotkin and team at the Animas Valley Institute (AVI) of Colorado.
I am a senior consultant with national business values and ethics consultancy Managing Values; I am also a senior adviser for CPA Australia where I consult on finance best practice, and human development on bespoke emotional intelligence and related programs. I also designed and facilitate the ‘Communication Influence and Trust’ development program for the Institute of Internal Auditors Australia.
From a traditional education perspective, I have Bachelor of Business (Accounting) and Master of Business (Information Technology) degrees and am a graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors, and a Fellow of CPA Australia.
I am also certified in Neuro Linguistic Programming and Breathwork, hold a Cert. IV in Training & Assessment, and am accredited as a DiSC personality assessment certified trainer. I am also actively involved in deep personal transformation work as a member in AVI’s ground-breaking ‘Wild Mind’ Training Program (WMTP).
The WMTP is aimed at building capacity in professional human development guides to support others to cultivate their innate wholeness and acquire the skills of Self-healing. It has 80 courageous participants from the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Colombia, Canada, Europe, Brazil and the United States.
Aligned to AVI’s aspiration of transcending the flatland of contemporary western culture, I am also a member of the Soulcraft ANZ Inc leadership Council.
