Coaching for Change


My change journey

I'm a turnaround and change professional. My passion lies in helping leaders effect major change successfully.

For over 20 years I've been motivated by one simple question:

"What makes people behave the way they do?"

This question has carried me through a journey that has spanned hundreds of projects, in dozens of countries, and impacting millions of people. It has provided me with the opportunity to work with some of the most exceptional leaders in government and the private sector in the Middle East. 

Early in my career I quickly gravitated to a professional services role, first at PricewaterhouseCoopers and then with Charles River Associates. After building a solid foundation in turnaround and organizational change projects, I was offered the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to help design and lead the Dubai Government institutional reform program. 

Currently, I have the privilege to serve as an advisor on public sector improvement at the Prime Minister's Office of the United Arab Emirates, a country that in many ways is at the cutting edge in the region and around the world.
