Sandra pioneers organisational outcomes with people at their core. During her careers in private and profit measured businesses, she found her attention was often more focused on the people involved and impacted, rather than the figures they generated. Sandra believes in developing a shared understanding of wellbeing at work and wants to offer a safe platform to share experiences which will support the learning and growth of others. Her mission is inspired by Covey’s 8th habit; finding your voice and helping others discover their own, in order to thrive.
