Don't guess - use a compass.

I’ve spent the last 15 years teaching forward thinking leaders how to thrive in the future of work. Working internationally and at home, my work catalyses new leadership capability across the public and private sector. 

As the former Chair of the Outdoor Council of Australia, President of the Chamber of Women in Business and Training Director at Outward Bound Australia I’ve designed, influenced and implemented award winning programs that work.  

Programs built upon one core premise, that as leaders, we can be BOUNDLESS.

If you or your organisation is ready to step beyond the status quo, develop BOUNDLESS leadership and build robust cultures fit for the future of work, then get in touch and let us begin your next great adventure….together. 


Grace Under Fire


Zoë works with select business leaders in private mentoring and coaching. 

She shows clients how to navigate high pressure environments with grace and grit.

She works with CEOs, General Managers, Managing Directors as a private sounding board and advisor.

Practical, strategic, bespoke.

6 and 12 month coaching programs.

For leaders who want to explore beyond borders, I have high level 12-month leadership program called the Leader's Edge Mastermind.
“Zoë is my ‘go to’ person whenever I need some leadership direction. Zoë has coached and guided me through personal and business challenges. She uses her caring nature to guide with intuition and understanding in a non judgmental way. I always feel totally safe confiding in Zoë, as I trust her. Her leadership skills have really assisted my confidence and my ability to lead my own team.”
— Claire Connelly, Owner - Papercut PTY LTD

The Team Edge

Facilitation and Training

Zoë is obsessed with ending workplace drama. It is the number one barrier to teams being Boundless.

She works with teams who are stuck in silos and turf wars. Stop disruptive behaviour and increase productivity.

For newly formed teams, re-formed teams, and teams working their way through change initiatives like a re-structure, or responding to a crisis.

1-2 day intensives to multi day strategic retreats.
“The Change and Corporate Culture Workshop was right on the mark: fun, engaging and gave our staff specific tips on how to approach and deal with change. I would highly recommend Zoë as a presenter and facilitator.”
— Juliette Ford, Farrar Gesini Dunn

Zoë has worked with the FGD Group on many occasions over the last five or so years. She has helped us with change management when the firm was moving from traditional offices and paper based to activity based and paperless. She has also worked with us mentoring and one on one training as well as leading our Director group and broader community with difficult conversation training. I thoroughly recommend Zoë in all areas she works in.

— Jim Dunn - CEO, Farrar Gesini Dunn

keynote speaking

Zoë's presentations focus on Connection in Leadership and our need to show up and be real, especially in the age of disruption.

Practical, funny, and uplifting.

I wanted to thank you for the fabulous workshop you presented: Leadership Skills for Industry Associations Executives. I gained a wealth of information, as well as invaluable motivation to refocus my energies into productive strategising and hopefully, successful future outcomes. Your are an inspiring presenter and passionate about building an empowered network of leadership professionals. I look forward to the next opportunity I have to attend one of your workshops.

WHERE you learn is as important as WHAT you learn

Join us at our next exclusive Leadership Intensive in TASMANIA, Nov 2-5

Wilderness is a tonic for the soul.

Shared experiences, beautiful settings, serious insight.

Something seismic happens in the wilderness: 

Façades drop away.

Pretence evaporates.

Worries dissolve.

Big views give big insights.

Here we get a sense that life and leadership can be truly BOUNDLESS.
