Each member of TEC team contributes to our services in accordance with the strengths, character, abilities, skills and unique points of inspiration we each have.
What we create together as a team is more powerful because of the way we understand, engage and share our own individual gifts, talents and inspirations.
Having said that, there is a common focus we all share and that is a heartfelt commitment to helping people discover and express their Truth and be the very best they can be for themselves, the people they love and those they serve.
Meet Our Core Team
Despite the hustle and bustle of daily life, Heather believes that all anybody really wants is to love and be loved, and to be known, loved and “got” for who they truly are. This is fundamentally what drives all aspects of her work and company. Heather holds that discovering and expressing the truth of who we are and embracing the difference we were born to make is at the core of us being loved and making a meaningful difference in the world. All too often the activities of life can distract us from the essential task of personal reflection and growth, yet this is where true success is born; the home of personal leadership.
With formal training in arts, psychology, family and systems theory and business, Heather has been a ‘people’ specialist for over 30 years. Her ability to get to the heart of what drives and inspires people, what limits them and prevents them from realising their fullest potential has been the foundation of her work in Australia, New Zealand, the UK, the USA and Asia.
Heather is a leading authority in Values Based Leadership and is a respected thought leader in the international arena of consulting, business and corporate innovation and coaching. She is also the Founder and Director of the highly acclaimed Green SuperCamp™ Australia programme, offering personal leadership, academic acceleration and environmental awareness to children aged 10 to 18 years.
Having worked with such iconic brands as Mars, Origin, Nestle, Goodman-Fielder, Vincent’s Accounting, Westpac, National Foods, Empire Group and Barnardo’s, East West Consortium (Malaysia), as well as New Zealand’s largest NGO, major departments of the New Zealand Government and over 22,000 individuals worldwide, Heather specialises in growing people.
Heather has enormous respect for the importance of structure and clear process and blends this elegantly with a capacity to work with the fluid dynamic of each unique group, regardless of age or context. She is humorous, energetic, powerful, inspirational, challenging, insightful, intuitive, and concise. She also has that unique ability to engage with individuals in the context of a large group, as well as addressing the needs of the group as a whole.
Heather is a renowned and much sought after international speaker who has travelled around the world sharing her message and frameworks with audiences on four of the seven continents and was head hunted by one of the world’s leading speaker trainers to deliver Speaker Training for businesses in Australia and the UK.
As step mother to 6 children (now adults), Heather also knows what it means to be in the trenches, juggling multiple demands and dealing with the reality of family, business and community commitments. Perhaps because of this, she has built an innovative company and attracted an extraordinary team of people who are equally committed to her legacy of providing services that help develop children who believe in themselves, engaged and inspiring adults, and thriving and innovative businesses.
