In the world of work, speaking up and speaking with others is a dangerous enterprise. Do it well, and we build a solid web of connections. Do it badly, we risk our relationships, our reputation, and our reach.
What is now required of leaders, in such an uncertain landscape, is the ability to be REAL. To own our own feelings while simultaneously and continuously seeking to understand the feelings of others. Being REAL is the essence of calm and composure.
I show senior executives how to lead in the moments that matter. With a warm heart, a cool head, and safe hands. You’ll double your influence, triple your impact and become the leader they turn to, not run from.
As we enter the decade of disruption, Zoë’s treatise on leadership composure is a perfect antidote to the disruption and volatility all leaders live with on a daily basis.”

"Zoë was my facilitator when I went for the Singapore Police Force Command and Staff Course 2016 as a Singapore Police National Servicemen.
I was indebted to her generous sharing of experiences and insightful comments/advices on ways to improve my leadership, communication and influencing skills. Every moment in our after activity review sessions was filled with tips and lessons that were delivered at precise timing to maximize my experiential learning experiences as participants of the course.
In all my 19 years in the education industry, I have never met anyone who can match her high level of facilitating, coaching and influencing skills. I have benefited and grown enormously through her feedback.
My heart-felt thanks and gratitude to her for coaching/mentoring me to become the best leader that I can be."
- Jenson C.L. Goh, Senior Lecturer at SIM University
"If you want to work on a really personal level Zoë is brilliant and knows all the strategies to resolve anything. She is great at getting to the real issues underneath the surface and genuinely wants to help you sort out your stuff. She helped me identify solid foundations and got me back to basics to sort out some challenging areas of my life.
She offered a very personal service tailored to suit my needs rather than blindly following a set program. I now feel better prepared to handle anything."
- Melissa Healy, CPA, CTA, Director, DFK Everalls
"You will get something different with Zoë. There is an art to setting someone up to be comfortable to share vulnerabilities and Zoë is explicitly trustworthy. I appreciate the access she provides to different mediums, blog, books, webinars and current information. Zoë knows how to keep the information fresh. The scope of service is great value. I never feel like I've exhausted Zoë's repertoire and it's great to tap quickly into the library of shared understanding we have built."
- L.S., Senior Manager, Sydney Insurance organisation
"Zoë has been coaching me for a couple of years now, guiding me as I step in an international thought leadership role. I absolutely love every coaching session I have with Zoë. She's intuitive, she really gets to the core of any obstacles I'm facing in my leadership growth, and she provides such brilliant tools for dealing with those obstacles. There's no doubt that her coaching really has helped me find and strengthen my own inner compass."
-Stacey Barr, Founder, Stacey Barr Pty Ltd
"I have worked with Zoë since 2006. She has been instrumental in helping me get focused as a leader, implement priorities, take on greater leadership roles, improve influence and communication. I would recommend her for any leader who wants an independent advisor with a strong personal and professional leadership focus."
– Nevin Agnew, Senior Partner in major Canberra law firm
"Before working with Zoë I had a number of issues, mostly around control. This was causing anxiety, low productivity, a stressful lifestyle and holding me back in my career. Through our work together I am no longer stressed. In the workplace I am a better manager, coach, mentor and leader. At home I am a better friend, brother, father, husband.
– John De Majnik, Senior Research Manager, Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation
"Before my coaching with Zoë the self-doubt and the negative self-talk was holding me back and costing me career progression through foregone opportunities. I now sit on Boards and participate on higher-level committees, a greater confidence and a preparedness to go. I am off and running! I would absolutely recommend Zoë's coaching. She is generous, wise, down-to-earth, kind, firm and possesses a good sense of humour.
– Barb Grey, Director, Silverbucket Pty Ltd. Aust. Cotton Industry.
"I have to truly thank Zoë for the leadership skills and gifts she so kindly passed on to me. She taught me about humility, fun, adventure, courage and how to work with and lead a team. But most of all she showed me how to inspire, enlighten, help and encourage those around me to be the very best they already know they are.
From the deepest wilds of Canada, the ruggedness of the Andes Mountains, the exhausting training with the British Army and now in Boardroom’s throughout Australia, Zoë’s priceless leadership lessons were with me then and they will stay and serve me for the rest of my life."
– Mike Oldroyd, Marketing & business growth specialist, Impact Data
