Back to all people
Phoebe is a registered psychologist who brings a commitment to evidence-based solutions. As a project manager, partner and advisor, she offers experience across public, private and not for profit sectors. She brings a proven ability to drive projects from initial needs analysis through to completion, always seeking to engage and empower stakeholders as individuals, teams and organisations, into action. Phoebe’s drive comes from her interest in the science of people at work – in terms of organisational development, culture optimisation, employee engagement and capability enhancement.
