What we do

Leadership and People Development

Outsourced HR

Project work



“It’s all about the relationships. I remember when I started my first consulting business, I joined a national network and my business coach said to me “you need to sell, sell, sell”. To this I said “I am not a salesperson and will never be a salesperson, but I can build relationships”

I started consulting in 2007 and I quickly learnt that there are two key elements to building a successful business – clear, honourable strategic goals and strong, positive relationships. These fundamental principles are at the core of my consulting practice. This is how it all begins.

At Zenith HR we support organisations in achieving their strategic goals. Sometimes this means establishing them first! Strategic goals act as a kind of road map for your company; they guide and direct decisions and set a clear path; without them, it is easy to get lost and lose the integrity of your company.

Once these are established, I want to create healthy relationships and workplace cultures. I work with people and leaders to build meaningful and cohesive working relationships that foster performance and productivity in the workplace.

It’s about forming common goals and building teams that are invested, motivated and excited by the pursuit of these goals. This means establishing clear lines of communication, a sense of pride and a culture of mutual respect.

Put simply, at Zenith HR we assist organisations to reach and sustain their Zenith! 

I look forward to working with your business.
