Thread Advisory







Hi there! Let me introduce myself.

I am a human capital management practitioner with over 28 years of strategic, operational and consulting professional experience. I set up my advisory practice two years ago, and I support clients around managing their people challenges and opportunities through 3 different approaches: 1) providing senior HR operational support to junior/inexperienced HR teams; 2) undertaking specific consulting assignments; and 3) facilitating leadership development programmes and coaching sessions for emerging and senior leaders. I want to add value and support young talent to empower them to thrive and be the best they can.
