Lead yourself, your people and your organisation into the future, today.

The Creative Conscious Leadership Consultancy

Future-focused development for leaders, c-suite, entrepreneurs & teams.

Today's world of work demands so much more from us all - with every advancement in technology and the sciences, we create even greater complexity. The trick is to upgrade our mental models - our lenses on the world so that we can live more comfortably with ambiguity and lead effectively.

I work with leaders and executive teams to develop themselves and their people; to drive transformation within their organisations, recognise and create sustainable opportunities amid disruption, think more creatively about the future through a bigger, broader systems lens and to build cultures of innovative thought and action, which are also really great places to work!

Work with me to develop your leadership capabilities, make sense out of complexity and harness the power of diversity in yourself and your people. Elevate your purpose-driven growth strategies and lead more effectively, today and into the future.

Services & Engagements

I believe in the power of creative, conscious leadership and the urgent need for leadership teams to work more cohesively today, more than ever before. Mowbray by Design's services and engagements are designed to support individual leaders and executive teams who are striving to be agile, experimental and innovative and to build thriving businesses that have a positive impact in the world.
Here you'll find a range of services and engagements with professional coaching, advising and facilitation at their core. No two clients are alike, which means using a range of multi-disciplinary models and tools to design something unique for you.
This could be anything from developing your personal leadership capabilities and vital lenses on the world including futures thinking, sensemaking and systems thinking, to behavioural science based personality profiles, leadership, EQ and team assessments and engagements to develop your resilience, agile thinking and innovation capabilities.

deep listening

We start with deep listening and enquiry to fully understand your brief, acting as a sounding board, thought partner and advisor.


We then assess your what you want to achieve in relation to where you are, taking your skills, knowledge and thinking into consideration.


We design a smart, layered engagement using the best models, tools and frameworks for the outcomes you want to achieve.


The good stuff - we work together, dynamically assessing, adjusting and optimising as we go along.

Striving to make a difference.

This truly is an extraordinary time to be in business. The last few years have not only been incredibly disruptive but the intensity and pace of change have escalated, underpinning the need for us to learn to dance more comfortably with ambiguity. 
World events over recent years have also given rise to a new era of creative leaders who are striving to not only build agile, experimental, innovative businesses, but to have a positive impact in the world. 
We are redefining our world of work sparking a new spirit of human-centric business in a digitised world. A spirit that is seeking purpose and meaning, creativity and innovation, flexibility and agility.
Together, we are navigating uncharted territory and being asked to step-up, shift and change. 
Our values, actions and behaviours as leaders and organisations are increasingly transparent and have a direct impact on our bottom line.
This dynamic context has inspired a much needed transformation in how we develop ourselves and our people, build our businesses, contribute to society and impact the environment. Purpose-driven leaders, teams and organisations are winning hearts, minds and market share.
Here at Mowbray by Design, I'm focused on supporting you to not only create success but to thrive in this, our emergent world of work. 
If you'd like to develop yourself, your team and your business, I invite you to connect with me and participate in raising the bar in how we do what we do - personally, in business and in society.

All good things start

with a conversation.
