A NOTE FROM ALEX...

 

Mid-2021 I embarked upon a creative partnership with HerCanberra as the author of its regular "Ask A Results Coach" column. At the time, the column was designed to answer the most commonly asked questions I receive as a coach - aiming to provide a free resource for anyone feeling lost, stuck or overwhelmed in the height of COVID-19 lock down. We never dreamed the column would solve all the problems in the world, but we hoped it might provide people with a place to start in times of struggle. 

 

Still, never could I have imagined the number of real and raw questions that would soon appear in my inbox from everyday members of the community. Nor could I have foreseen how many wonderful humans would enter my life: inspiring me with their honest stories of vulnerability, struggle and courage in challenging times. The column reviews provide a snapshot of some of the generous words I have received in return for my own, making the journey so very worthwhile. In turn, I am incredibly grateful to everyone who has taken the time to submit a question, start a conversation or provide me with a personal note of feedback.

WOULD YOU LIKE ALEX TO SPEAK AT YOUR NEXT EVENT?

Passionate about sharing her personal experience as a humanitarian with the United Nations, Alex often draws upon her International human rights career - as well as her work coordinating domestic and family violence and child sexual assault response programs - to advocate for greater opportunities for women in a world where womankind continue to be represented by all the wrong statistics.

Similarly, Alex regularly shares insights from her work as an International Results Coach who specialises in delivering women's empowerment programs. When approached to speak about this topic, Alex offers her audience pragmatic tips and tools for overcoming barriers to make real progress, maximise potential and achieve meaningful results in the face of adversity. Alex's passion for this subject is evidenced in her work as a columnist for HerCanberra where Alex answers everyday questions from those seeking to realise positive changes in their lives.

Alex's work with fellow coaches additionally sees Alex work in partnership with her peers to deliver training and educational events which holistically support and empower individuals and communities to flourish.

IMPORTANT TO NOTE: In March 2020 Alex transitioned to presenting to audiences digitally via technological platforms to guarantee continuity of services in an unpredictable COVID-19 environment. This transition enables Alex to work globally as a speaker, presenter and trainer while based in Australia. Alex is also available for in-person appearances and events upon inquiry (subject to adherence with COVID-19 public health orders and travel/event restrictions).

WARRIOR WOMEN: STEPS TOWARDS A CURE

A NOTE FROM ALEX....

In 2016, my work with Inspired Adventures afforded me the privilege of leading 23 incredibly brave women on a demanding eleven day trek along the Great Wall of China. This adventure was delivered in partnership with the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) to raise awareness and investment for breast cancer research in Australia and New Zealand. At least 50% of these women were survivors of breast cancer themselves, yet 100% had direct experience with an immediate family member or friend being diagnosed with the disease.

 

On this journey I encountered women with remarkable courage and resilience. But what left the greatest impression on me was the special kind of gratitude and zest for life these incredible ladies shared not in spite of, but by virtue of, the difficulties they had faced grappling with breast cancer. These women were warrior women for a cause that had changed the course of their livesThey inspired me to be one too.

 

The gallery offers a snapshot of our life changing adventure and you can learn more about how to support this valuable cause via the buttons below.
