Values & Business Ethics | Finance Best Practice | EQ for Finance, Risk & Assurance | Authentic Leadership Growth for Men | Executive Coach & Mentor | Educator & ‘Wild Mind’ Trainee


I’ve been doing what I do for a fairly long time. I love engaging with people and opening doorways to development.

I am a uniquely experienced consultant, adviser, trainer, coach, mentor and guide operating at the intersection of human capability development, organisational strategy, governance, risk management & assurance, culture & ethics and process effectiveness for over 30 years.

I have extensive ‘C’ suite and Board experience acquired in major Australian organisations including ANZ Bank and Australia Post.  For several years I also journeyed across the Victorian public sector with the Office of the Auditor General.

I was the Chief Audit Executive of the Australian Postal Corporation for many years where I managed the Board’s Audit, Risk & Compliance program and reinvigorated the company’s Internal Audit service. I was also a member of Australia Post’s Culture, Ethics and Risk Management Committees.

I am currently 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.

Reflecting my transformational and human development interests, I am also the co-founder and President of Melbourne Men’s Group Inc., a not for profit volunteer organisation & registered charity that has delivered transformative personal growth and wellbeing for men since 1998. 

A primary learning from working with men for almost 25 years is that good relationships are ‘good medicine’ – they keep us healthier and happier, and are foundational to professional & personal wellbeing. 

I bring an eclectic mix of human insight and strategic capability to my consulting, people development, coaching and mentoring engagements. I am graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors, a Fellow of CPA Australia and a Certified Information System Auditor.

I have Bachelor of Business (Accounting) and Master of Business (Information Technology) degrees and am certified in Neuro Linguistic Programming and Breathwork. In addition I hold a Cert. IV in Training & Assessment, and I am accredited in the DiSC personality profile.

I am also actively involved in deep transformational learning with the Animas Valley Institute (AVI) of Colorado. AVI has fashioned a contemporary framework for the initiatory descent to soul and, more generally, for nature-based human development at all ages and stages of life. 

AVI’s ground-breaking ‘Wild Mind’ and ‘Soulcraft Apprenticeship and Initiation’ training programs have around 100 courageous participants from the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Colombia, Canada, Europe, and the United States.  As part of my lifetime journey, I am a student in the Wild Mind Training Program.
