Why personal branding is critical right now.

It’s a Monday night in Melbourne. My son is supposed to be asleep but he’s having a chat-a-thon with his teddies in bed and I have ten minutes to go. Ten minutes before I am in the lime light before 60 high level professionals who are members of a men’s not for profit group. I am […]

How someone scored TWO job offers during Covid!

I suck at the humble brag. This is a bit bizarre considering I’m a personal branding expert & often tell my clients they’re being too humble! It may be because I genuinely love what I do & perceive the results I get for people as just being part of my job. I’ve been working closely […]

The key word here is “fake” and I’m not talking about diamonds or Louis Vuitton handbags. It’s a certain new breed of Professional/Life/ Health & Wellbeing […]

Maternity leave on a resume. Blessing, or omen?

It was a typical day at work. I was in the midst of sifting through a mountain of resumes for a senior position I was recruiting for. After some time spent staring at CV’s, the eyes can begin to glaze over and all resumes start to look the same. I then stumbled across one that […]

Cut the Bullshit & Earn What You’re Worth!

“No one will ever pay you what you’re worth… They’ll only ever pay you what they think you’re worth.” This is the powerful opening line to Casey Brown’s Ted Talk ‘Know your worth and ask for it”.
