Colleen works with groups, teams and individuals, globally, online. She has been a virtual worker for more than 15 years and is passionate about helping people and organisations work well together, especially in a digital, ever changing, increasingly complex world. Her main area of focus is on enabling healthy relationships with self, others and work, with a purpose to help people alleviate stressors, strains and stress associated with change and work/life integration.
With 20 years’ corporate experience across major business sectors, her insights into how individuals and teams successfully deal with interpersonal relationships and change come from a variety of complex projects and strategic business initiatives, many of which have been global and managed remotely.

This, together with Colleen's passion for connecting people globally, quite comfortably translates into her ensuring her consultancy, Connect EQ, helps companies thrive in a 'work from anywhere' culture.
