My Clients and Experience
I am a change communication specialist and storyteller who is passionate about using her professional and personal skills to make a positive contribution to communities.
In my more than fifteen years’ experience working across the public, private and not for profit sectors, I have built a portfolio delivering change management projects and communication strategies in Australia and around the world.
Some of these projects include work on international aid transparency initiatives, introducing change management networks for developing country programs and establishing collaborative communication frameworks for eHealth NSW and the Australian suicide prevention sector.
One of my most in demand skills is my ability to translate often-complex concepts and personal experiences into powerful narratives for diverse audiences. My experience in this area ranges from report and copy writing word to facilitating stakeholder workshops and consultations.
Previously Acting CEO for Suicide Prevention Australia, I now lend my expertise to socially conscious organisations and am a proud Director of Australia's Community Broadcasting Foundation.
