Passionate about creating measurable improvements for leadership effectiveness, employee engagement, and wellbeing, Beck integrates the latest research in neuroscience and positive psychology to enable small actions that deliver a big impact.
After almost two decades in the corporate world both in Australia and Internationally – where 10 hour days, stretch targets, high stake negotiations and weekly travel fueled by intravenous coffee was commonplace, Beck was sure there had to be a better way to work. So after some quiet introspection, ironically while on maternity leave caring for her baby boys, she hatched her escape plan, returned to study to complete her Masters of Applied Positive Psychology at Melbourne University and forged her path to fulfilling her dream of becoming a workplace wellbeing consultant.
These days Beck helps teams to unlock their potential by developing their strengths, building stronger relationships, and improving their resilience so they can consistently accomplish their goals and make a positive contribution to the world.
A master at creating safe spaces for experiential learning and growth, she has an enviable knack for drawing out the collective creativity, wisdom, and generosity that exists in any room to ensure the evidence-based practices she shares are tailored to your organization’s context and culture.
