Helping executives communicate complex information so good ideas get the traction they deserve.






McKinsey doesn't hire many kindergarten teachers, but somehow I snuck through the door (after some further study).

I had the great pleasure of working with the Firm directly for 3 years and then freelance for a further 15. Six out of eight on my team are ex-McKinsey communication specialists too.

Since leaving McKinsey's formal employment I have  guided executives of all stripes toward the thinking breakthroughs needed to communicate complex ideas clearly.

I have helped everyone from graduates to CEOs in Australia and overseas.

Clients range from boutique consulting and technology businesses to some of the world's largest publicly traded companies.


I get right in there with you.

I help you use a structured thinking process to sort through your data so we can synthesise your main point.

Once your main point is clear, it is relatively easy to communicate it in any form.  

The fundamental principles are the same whether communicating something as simple as an email or as sophisticated as a $300 million funding request. 

The communication itself is only as good as the thinking that underpins it.


I love what I do. 

Seeing recommendations approved ‘without adjustment' makes my day. 

Seeing the confidence that comes when clients see their good ideas get the traction they deserve is even more wonderful.

I love that helping people communicate does more than create clarity.

It materially reduces frustration, cuts wasted effort and delivers superior business outcomes, both in terms of quality decisions and time saved. 

Just as importantly for me, it creates confidence and accelerates careers.
