Collaborators

I’m blessed to have a fantastic crew of humans with complimentary skills who assist our clients and help problem solve and get things done. Our shared values and a commitment to excellence means that you’ll always feel supported working with us.


Sarah Gilligan

Co-Facilitator and Grant Coordination

Sarah‘s wrangling, writing and emotional intelligence are a great asset to the consultancy, bringing a broad and valuable set of knowledge and experience to our work.

Sarah became an ICF ACC coach after 25 years working in management across film & TV, circus, theatre, major public events, start-ups, and social enterprise.

She’s worked regionally, nationally and internationally and knows what it is to try and balance mental and physical health, career, finances and family in adrenaline fuelled, under-resourced freelance work environments.

She is one of only 272 International Coach Federation (ICF) ACC credentialed coaches across Australia and an advocate for the impact of coaching on individual and organisational resilience and workplace culture. The mental health, wellbeing and ongoing sustainability of the creative sector is core to her work.

Kath brings her special blend of energy, creativity, and practical wisdom all our work together. She is funny, honest, professional and completely dependable.

Collaborating with Kath Melbourne recently I was reminded of the passion it takes to work in this industry.

Kath knows her shit.

Tully the Office Dog

An important source of support, laughter and giant sticks Tully makes every day a little brighter.

Tully was a rescue dog with a very difficult past. Fortunately, she is now living the dream, sharing five acres with the hundreds of bird species that call this part of the world home.

Bull Arabs are treasured for their entertainment value and can be found sitting on chairs like humans, excelling at the dog sport of Nose Works and levitating like kangaroos when something catches their interest.
