International Management Consulting & Training



Would you like to know what makes me happy and gets me up bright-eyed & bushy-tailed every morning?ere it is: helping people and businesses connect internationally. Full stop.


Whether this is through supporting you to define an international business strategy, helping you to communicate effectively across borders or just brainstorming with you about how you could get more results from your export or trade promotion activities. It gives me great energy to see my clients have that ‘light bulb moment’ and see what they could achieve if they focus their energy on a structured approach to international business.

When confronting your challenges, one of my biggest strengths is being able to look at the bigger (international) picture, without losing sight of the people in the organization and the important role they play in reaching the organizational goals. I am a quick learner, and will make sure to get up to speed with your specific needs, products and services before giving any advice.

My life’s motto is ‘Everything you need is Just Outside your comfort zone.’ Not always easy, I know, but very rewarding; both on a personal level and in the business arena.
