Anita helps people and businesses create a dynamic capability to change, so they can adapt to today’s ever-increasing demands and complexities with ease and creativity. As an organization development consultant, Anita has worked with global clients ranging from The Nature Conservancy to Microsoft. She also brings over two decades of internal experience with technology companies to her work, using action learning as a way to marry her business background with her emphasis on human development.
Anita has held positions in Sales, Marketing, and HR in the US, Europe, and India. She has delivered workshops and strategic planning sessions throughout the world. This experience, plus being born in the melting pot of London, England, has cultivated a global mindset, which she brings to her work. Her organizational development practice has centered on capacity optimization for individuals and groups: consulting and coaching, development of global talent management programs, and the design and facilitation of developmental workshops for early-career employees, managers, and high potential leaders and teams. These experiences have deepened her skills in cross-cultural communication, facilitation, and learning design, with a common theme of forging new ground through collaboration.
Anita acquired a Master’s in OD later in life, under the guidance of Chris Worley, co-author of the OD Handbook, and has since gained a Certificate in NeuroLeadership. She is a certified Senior Action Learning Coach with the World Institute for Action Learning. When not on a plane, Anita spends time in Bend, Oregon with her husband, Alex and son, Bayley, where they enjoy the great outdoors.
