I get great enjoyment out of supporting growth minded Kiwi businesses with people and culture initiatives to enable them to scale.

When my dream of becoming a spy was unattainable, I fell into recruitment. It was a hard time, but it was for the best. I was really fortunate to have had the experience of working for great managers and teams early on in my career. Developing my knowledge and building teams fuelled my interest around how different businesses work, their unique structures and the range of motivators moving the business forward behind the scenes. All of these components paired up with my super-special spy skills confirmed for me, that the real driver to any successful business was its people.

Now what's rewarding for me is having the opportunity to support high growth companies to elevate their business, maximise productivity, and attract and retain their talent. The very best part is that I get to meet the most amazing people on a daily basis, hear their stories and play a part in helping them achieve their goals, both personal and professional.

Just after I joined Sprout, I decided it would be a great idea to get a puppy – I know – smart move. In hindsight this was a great reminder that timing is key, and in our business timing is everything, whether it’s the right time to hire, the right time to move or the right time to grow. I love strategising with the people we partner with to figure out the perfect timing for their business so they can get maximum benefit from our services. If your business is in a period of growth and you want to make sure your foundation is strong reach out today.
