Up and Running

  • I've been procrastinating about when is the best time to officially launch Enabling Solutions. Although I have been operating for over 6 months I have been busy building the business both internally and externally. During this time I have got a lot clearer on what I do best, what I can offer and where I can add value to both individuals and organisations.
  • As a generalist this has been a challenge as I have proven over many years that I am a 'jill of all trades' and with 'a can do' attitude I have always been willing to give anything a go. But I really can't offer everything to everybody. So over these past months as I have taken on new clients and worked on various initiatives, delivered workshops and conducted trainings, my focus become sharper. The work has helped to define me and establish what areas of skills and experience I can provide leadership and innovation.
  • So I am pleased to announce that Enabling Solutions will be specialising in Engagement, Partnering and Governance Consulting Services. Let me know if I can be of help to you and your organisation.

Now an Associate

  • I'm please to announce that I am now an Associate at DIXON Partnering Solutions. Working with the Managing Director, Ian Dixon who I have known for a number of years. It's a great opportunity to be engaged in cross sector partnering.

Introducing Me

Welcome to my website and my new business Enabling Solutions.
As part of developing what my business would focus on, I undertook a mini personal review. Not knowing how to really 'sell' myself or why others would want to 'buy' what I had to offer, I asked a number of family, friends and colleagues who knew me reasonably well, to text me three words that best described me. The consensus was passionate, committed and trustworthy. There were many other words that also described me but these ones gave an insight into how my behaviour is perceived by others. How I reacted to these words…well I can't argue with passionate, it definitely describes my personality. Other words such as energetic and enthusiastic supported this. While the word committed genuinely describes my behaviour to get things done and there were other words such as determined, driven and motivated. The word that threw me a bit was trustworthy and illustrated to me how others really see me. It's an extremely important value to have and I also noticed that other words such as honest, principled and reliable were mentioned. It was certainly an interesting exercise to do. Some of the other words that others used to describe me included:

  • Confident
  • Engaged
  • Conscientious
  • Courageous
  • Fiery
  • Gregarious
  • Hardworking
  • Intelligent
  • Positive
  • Professional
  • Self-motivated
  • Socially aware
  • Strategic
  • Strong
  • Tenacious
  • Vivacious
