Welcome to Leader's Edge
I started the business in 1997 and have developed a proven reputation for simply effective leadership and people development that creates real and valued change for people and their organisations.
I have a strong reputation to quickly cut to the chase, building trust easily while combining my deep knowledge of current leadership and neuroscience with the ability to hone in on the factors that are unique and relevant for each situation.
When my strategic thinking capability is melded with my engaging facilitation style the result is deeply meaningful insights for individuals and development that is valued by the organisation.
I have an energetic love of life, build trust and rapport easily, and I bring that attitude to my work.

Outside of business
For fun and leisure I can be found cycling either locally and at various cycle trails around New Zealand, developing my large garden, or perhaps indulging my creative energies in painting or drawing.

My tribal affiliation is Ngati Porou ki Hauraki. My pakeha heritage is Scottish, Irish and English.
