PEOPLE

Vanessa Vanderhoek has a well deserved reputation for delivering results in flexible work and leadership consulting, training and coaching.  She is the proud founder of Flexible Working Day.

 

Based on her personal experience in executive roles and managing geographically dispersed (flexible and agile) teams, Vanessa has witnessed firsthand the productivity benefits for business, and how it drives the attraction and retention of top talent.  

 

Vanessa has a unique position of having sat on both sides of the fence.  She was an executive for 10 years, and over the course of her career, adopted many different types of flexible work, including full-time flexible, part-time, shift‑work, compressed work weeks, working remotely, ‘fly-in, fly-out’, career break (to live and ski in Canada!), leave without pay, long service leave and carer’s leave.  Some of these flexible work arrangements were due to the nature of her roles, while many others were adopted by Vanessa as a choice for her personal and family life, and health and wellbeing.

Vanessa holds a Bachelor of Commerce, is a Certified Practising Accountant (CPA), is a highly experienced management consultant and a qualified (and engaging!) trainer and coach.
