Julie brings extensive experience in resolution of strategic and operational issues, and coordination of projects and initiatives, requiring multiple stakeholder engagement.

While at the University of New South Wales, she was nominated and selected to attend the inaugural Senior Management Program for high potential leaders.

The measurable result from Julie’s coaching is a shift in attitude and behaviour: real transformational change.
