Helping you turn conflict into
opportunities for positive change

Research shows that providing good outcomes is about more that expertise and technical delivery. It requires teams of people with the capacity to collaborate effectively even when things get tough. With more than 25 years of professional experience, Sarah understands the complex dynamics of culture and how this impacts both internally and externally on business and people.

From the bush to the boardroom, Sarah’s experience with multi-party, cross  cultural commercial and community cases has enabled her to help her clients navigate complex decision-making during times of confusion, growth and even crisis. Sarah focuses on nurturing collaborative practice through a lens of governance functionality. This draws together values, culture, systems and people to enable clarity, innovation and trust.
