As a Director of Everest and a People and Culture Specialist with over 25 years’ industry experience both in New Zealand and the United Kingdom, I enjoy working with businesses to innovate and stay ahead of the competition in terms of developing sound human resource strategy that link with business strategy.
I have the knack of being able to come into a business to quickly determine gaps, needs and areas for improvement, and then assist with the development of a strategy to support the changes. Being able to liaise effectively with people at all levels allows me to quickly build effective working relationships. I’m results driven with well-developed management skills. I am an advocate of providing businesses and the people in the business with the skills to manage their human resource function, promoting a comprehensive and hands on approach to managing people.
My career pathway has included consultancy, management and senior executive roles. I am a Chartered Member of HRINZ, a member of the Institute of Directors and hold qualifications at post-graduate level in business. I hold accreditation in a number of psychometric profiling tools and tests.
