Do you want to sustain and increase your success as a leader, with your team and in collaboration with other organisations? To do so, you’ll want to further develop yourself, possibly change your behavior and manage and involve your stakeholders.

Success might look like an overnight change, but in fact it is a lasting conscious journey.  

You don’t have to go it alone

As a successful leader you realise that going through this journey alone is not an option. Being alone is solitary and lacks the valuable input of others. Other people who will see you differently to how you see yourself.

The right Sparring Partner

Working with a coach or sparring partner on your development of alliance excellence is much like working with a guide on a journey. Your coach is independent from your organisation and committed to guiding you on your journey to greater success. Your coach will be your sounding board, your sparring partner, and will provide ideas aimed at helping you achieve your goals.

About me

I’ve had an almost four-decade long career and during that time, I’ve held managerial roles with various Blue Chip companies.  In 2001, I turned my focus towards alliances and took on the role of Global Client Executive Healthcare with IBM.  Then, I moved into an Alliance Executive position where I was responsible for developing and managing global alliances with Royal Philips and NXP Semiconductors. In 2010 I became an Independent Alliances & Partnerships Specialist and I am still doing that today.  It is my absolute passion.

My work includes one on one alliance coaching and mentoring, and teaching Alliance Masterclasses. I also perform alliance health checks and analysis, to help improve alliance performance or to blend cross-organizational alliance teams.
