" I think of my role as a business leader first, with an expertise in HR & OD, not the other way around. I have enjoyed the challenge of working within different organizations and industries throughout my career. This diversity of experience has rounded out my commercial knowledge and challenged me to be a better business leader.
I have a solid understanding of designing human capital best practices, and the pragmatic experience of implementing them on the front line. I love the challenge and opportunity of applying this approach in helping organizations meet their business objectives though engaging people practices. One of my passions is to show business impact of HR solutions."
