Jenny knows about reporting to CEO’s and presenting to Boards. She understands the rigours of corporate life; managing budgets, timelines, cutbacks, growth strategies and dealing with myriads of people issues. She has had her successes and failures as anyone else in corporate life. With a wealth of experience coupled with sound academic qualifications, in management education and social demographics, Jenny is a sought after Executive Coach, Strategic HR advisor, Facilitator and Speaker.
One of her favourite quotes is:
“People need something to believe in, someone to believe in and someone to believe in them”
Jenny has this to say:
‘Can you imagine what our organisational cultures would be like if we had such an aspiration. Coaching and mentoring however is not about being “nice” or ”the soft and fluffy stuff”. It is about maximising people’s potential and encouraging discretionary effort for the benefit of both the employees and the organisation’.
