Online & Face-to-Face Consultations to Help Individuals, Businesses & Teams  Move from Good to Great



Let's Meet

I'm Ellie, a Strengths-Based Corporate Coach

Organisations face many challenges in an increasingly dynamic and volatile landscape, including cut-throat competition, surging costs, and tight budgets. To survive, organisations need to adapt and re-imagine their business models through innovation and employee engagement initiatives. As a coach, I believe that everybody has the potential to grow into the best version of themselves - both at work and at home - and that every team can achieve tremendous success and results.

I work with a diverse range of clients: from government, healthcare and global companies to smaller, family-run, businesses to help them grow their cultures and develop their people. I help them improve employee engagement, productivity, sales performance as well as to solve complex challenges and expand their product offerings.


I coach managers to better understand their strengths and 'blind spots' and move from 'good' to 'great'.

Over the last 10 years I have helped many leaders in the area of talent selection, management and retention and provided strategic business planning advice to a diverse range of clients. As a fully-certified Gallup Strengths Coach and with a Masters of Business Administration (MBA) from the University of Queensland, I use the latest science and evidence-based psychometric tests and business analytics and Design Thinking tools in my coaching. My sessions and workshops are interactive and practical: I provide my clients with high-quality, cost-effective techniques to solve complex challenges. Some clients I meet with only once and for some I am a trusted business and talent management advisor and a 'go-to' person for 'sounding out' important ideas and decisions. 


I also love working with individuals in life or career transition using a wide range of life coaching, solution-oriented, strengths-based tools to help them achieve more than they would achieve by themselves.

A little Bit About Me

and why I love my job

I was born in Eastern Europe and have lived in 6 countries. I worked as an investment analyst for the European Bank for Reconstruction & Development (EBRD) in London and ran a successful, award-winning street-wear label 'Firetrap' (UK) - all before I was 27 years old. At Firetrap, I managed a team of 20 staff and looked after more than a thousand accounts across Europe. In the year 2000 I moved to Australia and worked as a business consultant for legal and accounting firms and the Queensland Government. Throughout my career as a business consultant and brand manager, I realised that I derive enormous pleasure from helping others succeed and be their best self. This led me to gaining my coaching certification with Gallup. As a strengths coach, I love helping clients better understand their talents and strengths, achieve exceptional professional results and live their best lives! My Top 5 Talents are: Learner, Individualization, Relator, Input, Discipline. I love doing the work that is in line with my strengths! I live in Brisbane (Australia) with my husband and two children and love yoga, meditation and eating tasty and healthy food.


My Services

My other little passion:
Professional Organising



Ellie’s enthusiasm and guidance have been instrumental to the success of our team. Ellie is pragmatic, strategic and practical in her approach, offering sound, impartial advice that helps me navigate business challenges and new ways to help bring our team together. One of her key strengths I noticed when she works with our team, is the mindset and impact that she can have on an individual’s performance. This then moves into talent management of our staff and understanding what drives a person and how to best utilise their natural skills within the workplace and in their individual business models. She brings real-world corporate big picture expertise and thinking and applies it to real estate in a way that is thoroughly practical and easy to implement. She is a true whiz when it comes to new ideas and implementing them with our office structure. Ellie is genuinely kind, caring and is passionate about helping us grow and giving me gentle nudges in the right direction. She brings focus to each session and I leave every interaction with Ellie feeling empowered.
