my story

Originally hailing from Australia, I love to travel and meet people, which serves me well as a 2Connect Senior Trainer focused on our international clientele. My extensive training in human resources, time management, team building and customer service has taken me around the world, and gave me the skills to successfully help Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu develop the world’s largest business development program. I’ve worked to reimagine workshop curriculum for human resources departments, including Caterpillar, Samsung and McDonnell Douglas. I am enthusiastic about developing successful business strategies and improving organizational development, which is invaluable to our clients who want to strengthen their message and communicate to diverse audiences.

EDUCATION

  • BA Business, with emphasis in Human Resources, Training & Development from Griffith University in Australia

Favorite city your work with 2Connect has taken you?

Berlin and definitely Shanghai.  Both great work experiences and also fabulous cities to explore.

Tell a story about something that makes you laugh.

We all have a good laugh sometimes at our fumbles in different cultures, like our different takes on what we consider normal, everyday in the US compared to Europe or parts of Asia. I have a story of one of my participants pulling out his phone in the middle of his own presentation to check on WeChat.  I guess he thought his own material wasn’t that interesting either.

What is your hidden talent?

Still looking for it. The few talents I have are certainly out there at this point.

What is your favorite food?

When it comes down to it I will go for vegetarian Indian food over almost anything else.  Or fresh mangoes and anything my mum makes gets on that list!
