I work with organisations who want …

  • Their people to open up and have honest conversations about what’s really going on and impacting their well being, motivation and outcomes
  • Their company values to be expressed in daily actions and not just posters on walls or competency statements
  • To give their managers practical skills to help connect the dots for people between what the company wants, values and achieves, and their individual contribution, satisfaction and career management
  • To get beyond blame and help build relationships that create positive outcomes
  • To invest in their communication and leadership skills because they know this is how they’ll release the potential of each employee

Who is Vanessa?

What you need to know …

  • Working with me is disruptive, challenging and highly supportive
  • I’ve failed enough to realise that my strengths as a facilitator are in having real conversations that drive real outcomes
  • You will get clarity of what’s going on under the surface that’s impacting engagement and contribution, and practical skills to use every day to build personal commitment towards what you want to achieve in your organisation.

Some personal bits …

  • I’m utterly inspired by possibility and the potential of human beings
  • I have two spirited daughters aged 17 and 13, a hubby, Heinz 57 cat and a crazy miniature schnauzer.
  • At 36 I discovered Parkrun and it showed me how having a fixed belief that you can’t run because you’ve had asthma since 7 is simply not true.  I’ve just done my 200th park run and even managed Brighton marathon on my 43rd birthday.  I finally admit that I can –  hell even like to run and am privileged to have met some outstanding human beings through it.
  • I’m a shamanic practitioner
  • I’ve just completed my 200 hours yoga teacher certification
