ABOUT

As an Organisation Business Coach, i am the catalyst in the transformation of your business to commercialise or adopt the most complex technologies - SaaS, AI, IoT or blockchain. I coach executives and their teams so they find ways to bridge the gap between enterprise procurement, end-users, the supply chain and other stakeholders.

Right from the onset, my intervention focuses everyone on the objectives that matter to the innovation uptake, to business growth and to resilience in order to deliver value and outcomes faster.

 

I work with two kinds of clients:
 

Optimise your strategy

Energy and water utility Innovation Directors and large contractors rely on
a 26-year international career in high technologies to facilitate systemic change with their:

  • Innovation culture

  • Customer experience

  • Value proposition

  • Collaboration with the supply chain.

+46% revenue growth*

Water and energy technology SME CEOs - seeking business growth and speed at the same time - and their teams relate relate to with my experience as a startup Founder, a Director of an upscaling SME and a female Board Director.

I am hired by Innovation Labs and public accelerators to coach SMEs in a number of areas:

  • Access to finance

  • Go-to-market strategy

  • Strategic objective setting and OKRs

  • Engaging with corporates = Account Based Marketing (ABM)

  • Value propositions

  • Organise your business to upscale / for growth. 

My coaching style is high energy; energy which I have learnt to tame being a chronic headache sufferer. I now use some of those techniques in my coaching practice: clients draw or go for walks to encourage breathing, grounding, self-pacing or creativity. Sports coaching techniques - such as developing mental toughness or championship strategies - also invite themselves into our conversations where they contribute to leadership development, resilience and team motivation.  Read some case studies for details.

In addition, with a 30% increase in global energy demand by 2040 and a 40% shortfall in global water supply by 2030**, I am committed to helping resolve some of the challenges and joined the Future Water Association as a Board Director in 2016.

If you want to transform your business to commercialise innovation, grow your revenue or embrace innovation faster, get ready to go from "brain fog" to a clear roadmap within minutes; "aha moments" included en route!
