I consult to a range of companies to help them launch new ventures, build digital products and run educational programs. I also work with creative founders as a business partner and coach.
I’ve gained valuable experience and expertise as a startup founder, talent agent, facilitator, producer and large-scale project manager. Or to put it another way, not many people have closely guided the careers of globe-trotting creative artists, taken complex B2B software products to market, and also run innovation programs for senior executives at the world’s biggest banks.
These diverse experiences have enabled me to develop a unique perspective and an ability to collect and connect dots that not everyone else sees. I love utilising this to help people and companies make breakthroughs and do great work.
How could we work together?
There are typically three ways we can work together:
- Embedded Product/Program Lead
- Office Hours
Workshops are a great way to start working together as they help me understand more about your business, your team, how you work together, where you want to go, and what to overcome to get there.
Workshops vary in flavour depending on your particular situation but tend to focus on broader strategy and roadmapping plus some smaller group, pair and solo exercises to help get insights into specifics.
Embedded Product/Program Lead
Most of my projects manifest as me working closely with your team on a project basis to help build, launch and/or scale a particular product or program.
After ensuring the discovery phase has been undertaken successfully, the focus moves to executing with efficiency and effectiveness, delivering knowledge sharing sessions, managing key stakeholder relationships, and ensuring everyone’s voices are heard.
This is a way of us working together without the commitment of a more embedded relationship, or the need to build additional structure. Usually it’s a couple of pre-scheduled meetings per month aligned to a clear goal or objective we’ve agreed. Sometimes office hours evolve into a more involved coaching relationship, other times they’re specific business-focused sessions.
In either case it’s an opportunity to have a sounding board, get more clarity on your thinking, and take concrete action steps towards what’s next.
There’s plenty about me on this site, but I welcome you to do some more digging on my background, my values and my way of thinking. I’m happy to provide some references if you like.
Usually compensation is a retainer over time or a fixed project fee. Sometimes I work on equity, or a mix.
If you think we could be a good fit to work together, drop me a line and we can set up a time to talk.
I look forward to hearing from you.
