She has served a diverse range of clients across Europe, Africa and the US.

She makes use of self-assessment or mental models to support deep self-enquiry and driving to enable greater self-awareness as a basis for her approach. By exploring the uncomfortable spaces of individual or collective shadows, Annie works with individuals in their organisational context to unlock latent capability and talent that can be expanded and amplified to enable individuals to better navigate the complex business environment and find ways in which to consistently add value. Annie also works extensively with the mind, body, heart triad unlocking our instinctual responses and brining greater awareness to our behaviour in a mindful way.
