How Can I Help?

You do what you do, because you love it, and you make a difference. The work you do brings great value to your community, your audiences and the people that you work with.

If you want to:

develop your skills, 

expand your reach,

develop global or local partnerships,

increase your impact and understanding,

or more…

Then let’s work together!

I am a trusted advisor with over 20 years experience in senior roles in the Arts and Creative Industries, Government and Not For Profit sectors. Developing, creating and delivering innovative and transformative solutions are my forte.

I’m a different kind of consultant for a new kind of world. Let’s change it together.

The feelings of guilt are real. #tullytheofficedog #coneofshame #officedogsofinstagram ...

It's been a tough week looking after Tully the Office Doggo and juggling work, but a great nights sleep can change everything. Ready to power through the next few days... #whatpublicholiday ...

Partnerships between two organisations can be tricky. Between more than two even trickier. You can start off with the best intentions then find yourself peddling in different directions- or even worse, butting wheels. A great outside facilitator can help to set things up right, and smooth the bumps in the road by sending up principals of engagement and bringing the best out in brainstorming sessions. If this is where you’re at, don’t hesitate to get in contact via the link in the bio- we’d love to help you out! #facilitation #partnerships #brainstorming #collaboration ...

For those of you sending lovely messages and thoughts about my much loved Tully, I just wanted to let you know that she’s being a complete trooper, but it’s tough. We’ll know more in a few weeks but right now it’s all about healing the wounds and making sure this skin graft takes. Wish us luck! #caninecancerwarrior #officedog #tullytheofficedog ...

When you start your own consultancy it means long hours, juggling priorities and supporting people on urgent tasks. Everything feels easier and more sustainable if you can be present. Present in play, present in rest, present in work. COVID has made it a difficult time for focus as you run several scenarios and solutions simultaneously while you juggle the mental load of constant and unpredictable change. I'm going to spend some time today in the moment being present in play... right after I whip a budget into shape for a client... #balance #catchingup #beingpresent #meditation #ariannahuffington ...

It feels like a really long time ago when we needed to put 100ml bottles into a transparent carry on bag. I’m lucky enough to be able to work remotely with clients, but I do miss that experience of getting off a plane and experiencing the places my clients live and work in. #bloodycovid #firstworldproblems #imisstraveling #aesop ...

When you're a consultant you're often tasked to getting up to speed really quickly and getting to the heart of projects, values and strategies. I'm lucky enough to have clients who trust me to go there with them! #gratitude #smarts #consulting #boyandbear #catempire #mavenandmuse ...

Tully the Office Dog has had better days, but she's back home and getting lots of love! #caninecancerwarrior ...

A shout out to new clients @theoperatives, a multitalented group of humans kicking goals, supporting emerging talent and pushing boundaries. Looking forward to a time when our stages and venues can be filled with the energy of the formidable Grace Jones again! #supportlivemusic #gracejones #gracejoneslive ...

Tully the Office Dog has a big day ahead of her today, with her third major surgery in six months. She’s taken really well to her new knee, but her next fight is with cancer. She’s a tough cookie with a big heart. Fingers crossed surgery goes well today and it’s the last we see of it! #bullarab #officedog #officedogsofinstagram #bullarabsofinstagram #dogsonadventure #caninecancer ...

“Many venues struggle to find musicians and DJs, while musicians end up wasting time and energy securing gigs and chasing payments. Live music is hard to organise, especially if you’re not networked or if you’re time-poor. Because of this, we realised there was a massive lost opportunity for local live music.
We found that if we made live music easier to organise, more venues would begin hosting it, in turn creating more opportunities for musicians.”

Jeremiah Siemianow, Muso’s CEO

A shout out to new clients Muso, who have also released a brilliant new podcast this week. The Muso Podcast - a podcast designed to help musicians understand the inner workings of the industry by interviewing the best-of-the-best in Australian music

The podcast aims to give musicians and music professionals an insight to the inner workings of the Aussie music industry with amazing guests including Jaddan Comerford (CEO, Founder UNIFIED Music Group), Lauren Mikkor (Founder Post Modern Collective & Manager of Running Touch), Patrick Donovan (outgoing CEO, Music Victoria), Pixie Weyand (Owner, The Zoo), Fil Palermo & Michael Christidis (Directors, Untitled Group ).

Tall Poppy Syndrome is that weird part of the Australian psyche that serves to tear down others who are rising. Mixed with some internal prejudice about gender or race and a little island mentality it can be a potent mix that has the capacity to halt talented people in their tracks. The messages 'you don't belong here' 'you don't deserve success' and 'you're an imposter, 'you're not talented enough' are amplified by those seeking to cut down someone who is growing at a different rate. And they are turned up to maximum volume for those who don't fit the dominant image of leadership. Smart People of Colour, smart First Nations people, smart Queer people, smart Working Class people. Smart Women. What if those feelings of jealously, pettiness, resentment and frustration could be transformed into support and celebration? What a difference it would make to the diversity of leadership in the arts. #diversity #tallpoppysyndrome #support ...

A delicious (in so many ways) session today with new client Transportation Press, talking possibilities and pragmatics. The biscuits were almost as awesome as the conversation!
