FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What do you specialise in?
Strategy and digital transformations. Both areas are not only aligned with what interests me the most but also my background, experience and skillset. 

Previous employers used to refer to me as the ‘girl who gets tech and people’ because I’ve always had an interest in technology and how it transforms businesses and lives of people. 

I’ve got a personal interest in software development and innovation and closely follow the Sydney tech startup scene. I am equally fascsinated by psychographics and etnographic research and I regularly work with people in coaching, mentoring, research and teaching capacities. 

What is your consulting approach?
I partner with businesses for desired outcomes. My approach is consultative, collaborative and experience based. Unlike many consultants who are brought in for shorter term engagements to deliver recommendations, I am often engaged in a more ‘high-touch’ capacity thus I embed myself inside organisations to deliver sustainable longer term change.

This allows me to experience the culture, work environment and business practices first hand and implement sustainable change that companies can build upon.

I don’t necessarily have a preference for the types of engagements. I am open to a discussion with you regarding your requirements and agree on the best way forward. Equally, if I am not able to assist you, I am upfront about that too and likely to be able to recommend someone from my network.

What are your consulting rates?
I usually charge a daily rate however longer term engagements (6+ months) are available on a monthly retainer that includes a discount when compared to my daily rate.

Project based pricing is also possible however prior scoping and consultation is required.

Depending on the type of engagement, complexity and business size, my daily rate is between $1,200 – $1,600.
