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. 


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

 For senior executives who are ready for the next step in their career.



Zoë has developed a high level 12-month leadership program called the Leader's Edge Mastermind Program to specifically address the needs of CEO's and Business Leaders. 


     The Leader’s Edge Mastermind Program develops your competitive edge.


     A competitive edge means business survival. We get this faster together. It may mean the difference between leading the way or being led away.


My Leader’s Edge Mastermind experience has provided a number of different types of resources to help me with my specific leadership challenge and has helped develop a tremendous support team along the way. My leadership and management thinking has been enhanced, I am more productive and I am more determined to become a better leader through applying what I have learned.
— Michael O'Shea - General Manager, Research Funding Unit at Sugar Research Australia Limited

I wanted to thank you for the fabulous workshop you presented: Leadership Skills for Industry Associations Executives.

WHERE you learn is as important as WHAT you learn

Join us for our next exclusive Leaders Edge Mastermind Program

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.

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.
