Who I am and what I do
Hi, I'm Helga
Building on my extensive leadership roles in government, not-for-profit and membership organisations, I’m known as a dynamic facilitator, a supportive and challenging coach, an effective trainer and an engaging speaker.

A lot of the work I do is customised based on the individual’s or organisation’s needs. So, if you don’t see what you need in this list, let me know, and I’ll see if I can find a solution that’s right for you.
My board experience
Boards play an important role in organisations and to operate effectively they need diversity, equity and sustainability.
I have been interested and involved in governance since high school, when I was on the school’s council. A lot has changed in governance since then, and there’s still a long way to go before there’s true diversity, equity and sustainability.
Former boards include:
I’m also a keen bushwalker, a volunteer and a former dance instructor
Although I love my work – it’s actually a lot of fun – I make sure that I put aside time to be outside and with family and friends. I continually invest in further education. Learning is important. And although I no longer teach people how to dance, I search for and take up new hobbies all the time.
