I can help you to become a better leader, because I have the experience of building one of the most successful creative health agencies in the world in one of the hardest most challenging industries. As I climbed through the ranks, I often had to learn the hard way. It doesn’t have to be so hard. With the right tools, strategies, advice and interpersonal guidance, you won’t just survive, you will thrive. 

My mission is to help develop the next generation of leaders to lead with heart

If you would benefit from clearer direction, a way to develop better ideas, strategies to build business and relationships, a pathway to winning awards and jury selection and more, I can help. You will be more successful, and more respected by client and agency folk alike. Above all, you can be the leader who people will want to follow.

My mentorship sessions will always begin with an energy setting drop in to ensure intensions are set.

 

Topics include:

Exploratory -  the first session to find where you’re at, your blocks, your challenges and biggest opportunities. 

Leadership - finding your brand and voice, setting your vision, working with your strengths, spheres of influence, understanding the business of creativity, working with the leadership team, raising profile internally and externally.

Creative Department - Attracting, retaining and growing great talent, inclusion and diversity, getting the mix right, building to scale, auditing and improving, thinking outside the box.

The work - Finding and championing the best work, structured proactivity, your inner voice, growth wall, healthy completion, finding the opportunities, working with suppliers, inspiration station, feedback, ideas bank/drive-through, beers & ideas, the merits of bravery, the three Ds, network opportunities, remain curious.

Awards - Awards suck, so why bother? Which shows? Strategy for optimum wins, securing budget, working your chakras, network approach, writing and producing effective case studies, spotting opportunities, client buy-in, effectiveness awards, CLC, structured proactivity, Gunn report.

Judging - Why judging sucks more than awards. Getting on the circuit, scam vs real, in-room protocol, judging criteria, integrity, finding your voice, gaining respect, do your homework, chairing the jury & running the room, social media presence, judging through your energy centres . 

Building intuition - your secret weapon, what it is, how it helps you at work and in play, how to build it, 

Interpersonal Relationships strategies for success, resolving conflict, leadership team dynamics, balancing interdepartmental needs 

A final note. Moving from a “ pure creative” to a creative manager, and from small teams to bigger teams can be tough. Knowing how to work with your business partner, and  your clients, and them knowing how to get the best from you can be equally tough. 

No matter what level you are, or where you want to be, I can help.
