Innovating positive impacts through design.

I work with organisations seeking innovation,  growth and influence to design and build the next generation of experiences.

Design thinking is a human-centered approach to innovation that draws from the designer’s toolkit to integrate the needs of people, the possibilities of technology, and the requirements for business success.
— Tim Brown, President and CEO of IDEO

Who am I?                                      

Through co-design, I create positive impacts for clients using design thinking processes to innovate human-centered design solutions that will enable, empower and elevate clients capabilities.


I am passionate about the professional growth of my clients. I use my expertise in Design Thinking to help clients unpack issues and challenges in order to create new designs and innovations to facilitate new direction. I help build the capability of organisations by helping them connect the dots between the theory and the actions, and building sustainability through the innovation of a clear vision and supporting sustainability through deepening understanding and enabling education and training.

I love connecting with clients and engaging with them to help gain insights into the impact they are having on the growth of their teams or businesses, and use the fundamental principles of appreciative inquiry to enable collective vision and actions.
I show my clients how to take control of their professional self.
I take the “THINK” out of impacts and make it a “KNOW”

I believe that often the expertise lies in the business. I help clients unpack their businesses expertise and align this expertise with the business' strategic vision.
I work with clients to identify new areas of professional learning and development and to create rich and deep foundations to grow change from the grassroots up.

MOE Centrally Funded PLD

As you get ready for the 2018 school year, and finalise PLD goals  - school leaders - MOE funding is available to support you to meet your PLD goals.

This PLD funding application is centred around an inquiry model which requires schools to know the problems of practice they wish to improve in order to lift student achievement. This means you must provide evidence of what you are basing your application on and how you will monitor impact of the PLD. - I can help you with this inquiry process.

Approved facilitation hours and transport costs are covered when you are granted this funding.

Contact Tabitha to discuss using your MOE PLD funding to access her Teacher and Leadership Inquiry, student agency and coaching or mentoring programmes
