I am an Executive and Career Coach and a facilitator and group coach on leadership programmes. I am also a mother to two teenagers and a nine year old boy. Starting my career as a management consultant in Australia, I moved to the UK when I got married. Following an MBA from INSEAD, I joined a strategy firm in London, working part time with two young children. Then I took a break from the demands of consulting, launching my own Professional Development and Coaching Practice before following my husband’s job to Singapore where I had to re-think my career. Returning 5 years later to start again, I gained a diploma in Clinical Organisational Psychology and several specialist coaching certificates. Although I never took a full career break, I understand the pressures of re-launching a career as a mother and starting afresh, often in a new country.
