Patch is a Coach and Consultant, passionate about educating and empowering business owners and leaders to build successful businesses as she believes that great businesses have a positive impact on our communities and society.

Born into a family of business owners, she’s seen many challenges and successes. From a humble burger and pizza bar run by her parents, bar/restaurants by her father and uncle to her grandfather founding a textiles manufacturing factory over 60 years ago that is still a family run business with over 400 staff – exporting globally. After 10 years in corporate roles, Patch pivoted her career to follow her passion to help SME’s. For the last 10 years, Patch has worked with hundreds of companies from a broad range of industries such as: construction, recruitment, legal, accounting, marketing, real estate, architects, early childhood, IT services & not for profits to name a few.

As a coach, Patch spends all of her time helping business owners learn how to run their businesses, build healthy teams, drive growth, and most importantly – live a balanced life. Sharing her knowledge and passion for business education and how it can truly transform an organisation is what gets entrepreneurs excited about being in the same room with Patch.
