Since being introduced to Self Development in early 2004, through a dear friend of mine, Kimiko Miyazawa, I have been focussing on building my knowledge in this field.
What particularly caught my attention was the effect that my self development was having on those around me. It is very contagious indeed.
Having invested hours upon hours of research and study into the field of self development, I have shared my insights with people who were willing to make a positive difference to their lives. Reading self development books and listening to audio resources on a daily basis has become part of my life.
I completed my formal education in Life Coaching at The Coaching Institute in Melbourne when I attained my Certificate IV in Life Coaching.
Next was my formal qualification in Executive Coaching, which I completed at the Rescue Institute in Colorado, America through distance learning. Being a permanent student at the "Institute of Self Education" I continue to self educate myself in the vast ocean of knowledge in the self development field.
My background as a Financial Planner has given me a deep insight on how to deal with people, their concerns, their goals and objectives.
I have conducted professional development workshops in sales and service, for organisations that were looking for positive changes in their staff's mindset. These organisations ranged from small to large operations.
My one-on-one coaching sessions have served people from a variety of personal and professional backgrounds.
As a speaker, I am very passionate about entertaining, engaging, energising, and informing my audience. I initially developed a liking for public speaking once I started competing in public speaking contests, winning many of the contests that I entered.
Serving the Aboriginal Community is something that I am also very passionate about. Hence, my involvement in Aboriginal empowerment projects.
I have been interviewed by business leaders such as Paul Dunn and Ari Galper, to share my insights into building better personal and professional lives.
