As the Founder of  Play Contemporary Leadership CoLab I am involved in creating a different sort of leadership development experiences to disrupt the tendency to rely on past practices to inform future realities. With a particular interest and expertise in gender, Play CoLab challenges the usual practices around leadership, diversity and inclusion.

I also consult to innovative businesses about their brands and future workforce, and provide social commentary through writing and public speaking.
