With a natural curiosity for what drives behavioural diversity, Belinda brings a non-judgmental, supportive and 'no excuses' approach to her clients. She combines her legal and leadership experience with her passion for helping people work smarter. Belinda assists her clients to simplify the complex to bring about fresh perspectives and a new focus. Belinda's ability to plan and book travel of any kind is an enviable skill.
