Most of my 21-year career was spent with a well-known engineering organisation. I spent time in project planning, engineering design, and training and development roles.
The last 8 years of that chapter were spent in a coaching based role, where I supported over 120 people with early career development, technical assessment of skills, and integration into a demanding business environment. I had a 100% success rate.
I’m also a degree qualified mechanical engineer, an internationally qualified kitesurfing instructor, I practice regular yoga, and have recently written, edited, and published my first book.
I’m thus well positioned to offer support to those wishing to make a similar change to me, would like help with the various parts of a writing project, or would benefit from some positive shifts in life.
See below for specific areas I can offer support and guidance on.
Positive shifts and a growth mindset.
From identifying values, building good habits, benefits of yoga and meditation, and creating change through action – not procrastination.
Preparing for, making the most of, and the re-entry strategy for those wishing to take a sabbatical.
From considering opportunities, sharing lessons learned, managing the highs and lows, and offering a network of support.
Writing, editing, and self-publishing.
From the mapping of a story, suggestions of software to use, understanding different parts of the editing, proof-reading, and self-publishing process.
