Sonia Irwin

I engage leaders, emerging leaders, stakeholders and teams to create positive change for their organisations. I am passionate about learning, enjoy meeting people and using my strategic skills to create connections and build understanding to shape long term strategic and behavioural change.

I am an excellent communicator, with a strong background in communication research, design, facilitation and co-creation. My war cry is ‘be the change’ and I enjoy inspiring and collaborating with people that are stuck and need to move forward. I believe that people often know the right solution for them, however can be blocked from sharing due to confidence. I help clients with building insights into their problems and encourage problem understanding rather than going the easy way out to create quick solutions that don’t stick.

I focus on assessing unstated needs, surfacing the sticking points and building a shared focus to overcome people challenges. I am an introverted extrovert  (so James and I have fun!) with a high level of motivation and energy to inspire my clients towards meeting their ambitions. Creating positive velocity towards achieving targets is the name of my game.

James Young

I facilitate connections between individuals, teams and organisations for collaboration and innovation. I am an avid reader, networker and researcher, and am highly skilled at integrating ideas and concepts into practical workshops and ongoing projects to nurture creativity, foster growth and create long term strategic and behavioural change.

I am an excellent communicator and relish in sharing my knowledge to help people improve their resilience, develop strong internal and external relationships, and innovate policies and procedures.

I am also an introverted extrovert (loving research and engaging with people) with a dry, fun sense of humour and a lot of ambition. I am original in my thinking and adept at creating loyal relationships with colleagues and business partners.
