Overview

International consulting, big-vision startups, learning adventures, business planning & technology background with a Bachelor of Industrial Engineering. 

I’ve done a lot of activities in business: efficient processes, business planning, designing products & services, marketing, tech, sales, partnerships, operations, supply chain, operational management and more. I’ve seen many products and companies succeed and fail and have developed a large, global network of people who make things happen and are ready to be inspired by you.

I can plan how things can happen quickly and successfully – from naturally seeing dependencies, improving the commerciality of your product, service or business, ‘hustling’, problem solving, enhancing communications and funding documents, and creating ‘go to market’ strategy.

Available for large program design and implementation, coaching, ideation, business planning, product design, event and experience design, and communications development.

Digital, Tech & Fast Business Results

In 2006 founded Runway Digital, an international, digital consultancy providing leading-edge insight to senior leaders. Services covered executive coaching, social media and digital strategy, content development, website development and group training.

Prior to Runway Digital worked as a international strategy consultant at Deloitte Consulting, KPMG Consulting, Telstra, finance and retail corporations and boutique consultancies shaping hundreds of new ideas to commercially sound concepts and creating organisational change and culture development plans for programs in large organisations.

In 2013 founded Digital Treasure Hunts: teams learning various aspects of new digital platforms (blogging, twitter, foursquare, youtube,..). 100+ people chasing through Melbourne city solving clues. Fun + good humour + learning.

And in 2014 we created “As seen from space” ~ People can view their location from space, thanks to the combination of Commander Hadfield‘s photos from the International Space Station & Foursquare.
