Waging a war on wasted potential, Corrinne’s mission is to spark people to play their big game through Fearless Leadership. With an unconventional background in the jungles of Thailand and in corporate Australia, Corrinne brings a different perspective on leadership.


She has held leadership roles in the corporate world heading large teams and projects with budgets in excess of $80 million, and she’s well versed in leadership theory. Yet some of Corrinne’s greatest leadership wisdom – and best stories – come from living and working in a jungle refugee camp on the edge of a war zone. Married to an ex-guerrilla fighter and mother of two daughters, she knows first-hand the practicalities of juggling multiple priorities and perspectives.

Her work with leadership teams to embrace Fearless Leadership results in an aligned and powerful team, creating the baseline for organisational success. Her Fearless Leadership framework is innovative and trusted, informed by positive psychology, underpinned by Neuroscience, and it works.

Working with Corrinne is for those who are ready to get out of their own way. Having held leadership positions in the corporate world, to then building a successful leadership practice, Corrinne is recognised as a provoker of change and growth. Known for her provocative and yet empathetic approach, she shows leaders how to release the human potential in their careers, teams and organisations. Her messages are grounded in the competing realities of the workplace and the challenges of being a leader.

Corrinne’s latest book ‘Leaders Who Ask: Building Fearless Cultures by telling less and asking more’ was released in late 2018. She is also co-author of ‘Developing Direct Reports: Taking the Guesswork Out of Leading Leaders’ and two specialist texts in human behaviour used by coaches and consultants worldwide. She is currently working on her next book, ‘Guerrilla Leadership: Key Lessons Teams Can Learn from Leading on the Frontline’.

Corrinne has helped more than 4,000 leaders across over 1000 organisations in almost 15 years, challenging them to increase their influence and to build engaged, productive teams and organisations. Are you ready for her to help you?
