Work and people I admire

Coloured plastic cones spread out with lines connecting them

There are so many people and organisations that I admire, doing great and admirable work. And I want to share the goodness with the world! Below you’ll find a selected mix of people, organisations and resources that I have found helpful personally and professionally.

This list will change and grow over time. I’d love to hear about people, organisations and resources that you’ve found helpful – you can email me, or send me a note via my contact page.

  • Carley Nicholson at Vitality Unlimited. Carley supports you to identify simple, smart actions that support your wellbeing and success.
  • Brooke Trenwith at Potential to Performance. Brooke assists students, parents, and educators to maximise their learning and turn potential into performance.
  • Tracey Cunningham at Science and Wellbeing is a talented coach and facilitator with a background in education and the corporate sector. I highly recommend having her take you through the MSCEIT emotional intelligence assessment.
  • Sarah Davies at Sweet Spot Business Coaching will guide you to clarity on the value you offer, your ideal client, and how to negotiate sales in a way that everyone wins.
  • Kate Duder at Inside Matters. Kate is passionate about health and wellbeing, and discovering and sharing ways to promote wellness and thriving.
  • Jeremy Dean’s Emotional Culture Deck, a great way to build emotional intelligence for individuals, teams and families. Contact me for the code to get a 10% discount on your purchases.
  • BrenĂ© Brown, a gifted researcher and storyteller in the areas of courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy. She has written multiple books, and hosts two podcasts, all of which I cannot recommend highly enough. If I had to pick one, it would be Dare to Lead, which brings together so much of her knowledge, insights and wisdom.
  • Positive Psychology.com, a repository of knowledge, insight and resources for applying research-backed positive psychology principles to work and life.
  • Conscious Leadership Institute, an organisation dedicated to building conscious business cultures of trust and intentionality. I particularly love their work on being above or below the line, explained in the simple video ‘Locating Yourself‘.
  • Angela Duckworth, researcher and author, an expert in measuring and building “grit” (the ability to stick with things and see them through).
  • Jon Acuff, author of multiple books that have helped me get out of overthinking, through procrastination, and into results.
  • Greg McKeown, author of Essentialism, and in my opinion even more importantly, Effortless.
