I love helping people learn

I started my career as the playwright and founding director of a children's educational theatre company. Eventually, I wanted a more stable life. So I got at job at the University of Sydney. There I discovered my passion for training and 'one to one teaching' (the term coaching didn't exist yet). I spend 20 years mastering those skills. But I'm a maverick. So I decided to do my own thing. In 2006 I set up a business called Metamorphosis Consulting. Three years later I changed the name (oh the irony!) to Think Learn Succeed. Since then  I have:

  • Trained over 60,000 people across Australia
  • Coached hundreds of professionals and leaders
  • Designed more than 90 positive psychology courses
  • Written a book
  • Created  over 100 youtube videos

I'm a lifelong learner, too

I’m always studying something. My qualifications include:

  • Bachelor of Arts, specialising in Social Anthropology
  • Graduate certificate in Adult Education
  • Master Practitioner credentials in Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP)
  • Graduate Diploma of Applied Psychology (Counselling)
  • Diploma of Positive Psychology
  • A wicked sense of humour and the ability to turn misfortune into wisdom

I've trained positive deviants in many iconic Australian businesses, including:.

  • Essential Energy
  • NIDA (National Institute of Dramatic Arts)
  • Sydney Opera House
  • Thales Australia
  • Telstra
  • The Iconic
  • Qantas
  • University of Technology, Sydney (UTS)
  • Waverley Council
  • Weight Watchers Australia
  • Westpac
  • Wollongong University
