I’m a specialist in purpose-driven, founder-led endeavours where your role is not just about being a “leader” or “CEO” but being the person who first breathed life into an idea. My experience is rooted in a personal journey of 20 years of the rollercoaster ride of being a founder from growth to exits, turnarounds, succession planning and even closing companies altogether. I also draw on research with hundreds of founders to support those in the vital role of holding the values, purpose and culture of an initiative.
I can help you with: Clarifying vision and values; building creative, self-managing organisation structure, practices and culture; working artfully with money; co-founder relationship development and troubleshooting; founder transitions – succession, exiting and closing well.
