Having met with over 3000 business owners since moving back to New Zealand 10 years ago, I am convinced and committed to the following three things:
  1. HR is an area best outsourced for most organisations in NZ.
  2. Preventing HR problems is one of the most worthwhile endeavours a business can invest in.
  3. I can create an HR outsource that is thorough, refreshingly personal and useful, for a price any viable business/organisation can afford.

It is my delight to provide such a service!
Outside FixHR I am an active church member at The Upper Room in Newmarket, and I am mum to three adults (including one lovely son-in-law). My cherished husband knows I’m almost always up for sharing a meal and/or a movie with friends and family, and I have become the person who doesn’t miss an episode of certain entertaining Australian reality TV shows.

Our learners love us

I can't believe how much I learned on the mentoring programme. Now I finally understand the importance of my mentoring role and how I can be more effective in supporting others to learn and grow.

Now I know how to give feedback in a way that really helps others to learn. I have seen a big shift in the way my teachers respond to my feedback.
