Meeting Mary was a game changer! I was seeking a coach to assist with my leadership transition and leadership style. Creating a safe, non judgemental space, Mary provided a progressive balance between coaching, mentoring, informing and challenging. Mary supported me to recognise my areas for self improvement to become a more versatile and adaptable leader. If looking for a partner to help shape and transform to be the best version of themselves, I would enthusiastically recommend Mary.

We partner to harness the collective intelligence to achieve the desired results.


We support to grow and develop your team to be the best they can be. By revealing the hidden motivations to better understand what your team needs to elevate their effectiveness and performance. We help to build capability to enable a productive and collaborative culture that is supportive of each other.


We engage and involve the team to understand where and how their work contributes to the organisation’s vision - aligning their strategy to support the delivery of the organisation’s goals.

I engaged Mary to work with our board and executive to facilitate our strategy. Mary pulled rabbits out of a hat! From her thorough prep-work to engaging us throughout the process, Mary got us to a place we didn’t know we could get to & highly unlikely to have landed on by ourselves. The best bit was, Mary really made sure we owned our wins and at the end of the sessions, we were patting ourselves on the back for our own good work. Anyone who has worked with a board knows this is a great outcome. 
I’ve engaged Mary for multiple other facilitation sessions where we needed to pull together as a team & she always hits it out of the park. She is the first person I’ll call in the future when projects like this come up.

Our experience with Mary was that she was the right choice.  
We were seeking to recruit the right person to work with our Board to set the framework for a 5 year period. Mary came highly recommended. She had this innate ability to draw out the best from our industry-elected board members and community stakeholders, which lead to the successful completion of our new strategic plan. In fact, our experience with Mary was very rewarding. Her passion to bring out the best in people was very obvious - and does she know process - which supported our experienced and inexperienced board members to build and deliver the strategic vision for our industry.

We partner to shape and align the way forward.


Rapidly changing working environments present challenges to address and opportunities to pursue. With thought provoking processes, we guide strategic conversations, by engaging the “organisational” brain to find the right solutions


We focus on maximising engagement to support the development and implementation of the organisation’s strategic plan.  We do this by adopting a range of methodologies and processes to unpack the present, and visualise the future, for the organisation to set the strategic direction

Public libraries are operating in a rapidly evolving environment and we wanted a collaborative process that enabled us to hone in on the strategic imperatives. We needed an experienced facilitator to draw out the best thinking from our sector and stakeholders to set us up for the next four years.
Mary brought wisdom, energy and enthusiasm to the process and with our clear direction set, we are immensely grateful for her contribution. We would happily recommend Mary to organisations seeking to undertake a meaningful & thorough planning process.
— Chris Buckingham- President, Public Libraries Victoria
Optometry Australia engaged Mary to develop a change management program to support our rebranding project. This brand evolution did not just impact us as the national peak professional body for optometrists, but all seven organisations that make up our federated organisation. Mary’s process ensured that all leaders within the federated body understood and embraced the new brand ethos, vision and mission whilst giving them the necessary insights to confidentially cascade this understanding to their teams. We highly recommend Mary’s inclusive, supportive and positive approach.
