Founder BKindred, BKindred

Melbourne

I’m a Happiness Hacker who teaches individuals and teams how to realise happiness in work and life. Why? Because I don’t want to live in a world where overwhelm, anxiety and depression are the norm. Research tells us that happier people are more engaged, energetic, resilient, productive and infectious to those around them.

I use innovative tactics and self accountability to enable impactful change. My personal development programs have helped individuals and teams from LuluLemon Athletica, General Assembly, Coles, L’Oreal, Viva Energy, Shell, NAB, Treasury Wines, Medibank, Queensland Government and many more.

Three years ago I turned my life upside down. I left a sixteen year career as an executive, relocated a family from Perth back to Melbourne, left and 18 year relationship and started my own purpose driven company BKindred, all within six months. Crazy right?

I recently took it one step further and delivered a keynote in my bathing suit, in front of 100 professionals, to demonstrate the power of getting comfortable with discomfort in order to make happy change. The moment went viral, was accoladed by professionals globally and inspired the #nakedforchange movement.

I now use these stories and over 20 years of change experience to empower individuals and their teams to determine what happiness looks like for them and how they can weave more of it into work and life.

My Happiness Hacker expertise have been published and quoted in the Huffington Post, Daily Mail UK, SmartCompany, Conscious Magazine, StartUp Smart, Smarter Magazine, The Age, Womens Agenda, The Sydney Morning Herald & NZ Entrepreneur.
