A little about me

I’ve been an executive coach, facilitator and consultant for the past 15 years. Previously, I was in the automotive industry as head of marketing for two luxury brands, but started my career in professional services.

My varied background adds to my success as a coach, by providing different perspectives and first hand experience.

Why I love coaching

Coaching individuals and teams is a real privilege as I get to truly connect with people and create a safe space for them to find their own insights and learnings. On top of this I love that I learn from each and every engagement – I learn about human nature, organisations and some truly random stuff! This comes full circle and gives me new insights and strengthens my abilities as a coach.

My coaching ethos

My coaching style is pragmatic. My approach is underpinned by solution-focused frameworks and evidence-based methodologies however I believe my real asset is my ability to listen, to question, to challenge and to also listen to what’s not being said. This allows me to challenge the coachee even more to see new perspectives. My coaching sessions are all about you – I am here to push you to be your best and that is through good old fashioned communication. We get results, AND we have fun on the way!

Industry experience

I work within a variety of different industries from financial services, media and consumer products right through to not-for-profits, government and tech-based businesses. I understand the challenges that first-time leaders face, as well as senior leaders, and the impact this can have.

My qualifications

I have a BA (Mass Comm), an MBA as well as the highest level of coaching accreditation through the IECL. I’m also accredited in many profiling tools such as LSI, HBDI, MBTI, Disc etc. – But it’s my experience, curiosity and lateral thinking that helps coachees to see new perspectives.

Client testimonials

“…I got offered the Commercial & Finance Manager role we spoke about... I could not have done it without your encouragement to speak openly about my frustrations with the lack of internal promotions and career progression. Thank you very much and I hope to be able to stay in touch through short topic-focused sessions!”


Group Analysis & Systems Reporting Manager, Freight Logistics Company

“Liane is a true professional and amazing coach. Perfect timing starting a new role and having Liane’s coaching – who really helped me get through the first few weeks/months. Thankyou Liane you are amazing!”


Associate Director, Australian Financial Institution

“The move from a technical professional to a manager, is one of the biggest career transitions you can make. Working with Liane, I gained confidence to step up and into my new role. She enabled me to increase my level of self awareness so that I could identify the thought processes and habits that were holding me back. Liane then worked with me to identify strategies and approaches to address these. The end result is that I am a more confident Manager, and am able to think and act in a more strategic manner that benefits my team and the business as a whole.”
