And lead in the moments that matter.

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 have to get REAL.

If you or your organisation is ready to step beyond the status quo, develop REAL 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 programs.

“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 of Papercut Pty Ltd


The Team Edge

Facilitation and Training

Zoë is obsessed with ending workplace drama. 

She works with teams who are stuck in silos and turf wars. The results they get with the Team Edge System has meant a significant decrease in disruptive behaviour and increase in 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, Director, Farrar Gesini Dunn

Adventure In Leadership

If you want to take your team to an extraordinary level of performance and engagement, there is no other faster nor more profound way to do it than undertaking adventure together, in a remote and spectacular environment.

Something seismic happens in the wilderness: 

Façades drop away.

Pretence evaporates.

Worries dissolve.

We get REAL

It is under the magic of the stars and wide open skies we connect to who we truly are, and find the courage and conviction to bring all of us to the now, alone, with others, at home, at work. All the time.
