Time and energy are the great resources of the world. Channelling these precious resources into effective action is the key issue confronting us all; in our lives, in the workplace, in the world.
Margaret Pimblett's commitment is to supporting organisations to operate in ways that enable their people to bring not only their time, but also their energy; the unique contribution that each individual can make, to the organisation for the benefit of clients, colleagues, the business, shareholders and for the individual's own benefit too.
Using her extensive experience both working inside organisations and as a consultant to a vast array of corporate and public sector clients, Margaret Pimblett works with her audiences to use the time she spends with them to focus on key issues, think about those issues in an ordered way, decide on practical action to create better results, and most importantly to act with the courage and confidence necessary to make a positive contribution to the collective endeavour, the experience of clients and customers and their sense of their own capacity after her presentation.
Margaret's early career in the public sector led her to become interested in how organisations can create better outcomes from enabling their people to do their jobs well or lose the wellspring of goodwill that people bring in their desire to do a good job, by disempowering them. This interest led to her running the Customer Service Improvement Project for Australian Airlines in the early 1990s, a program recognised as a leading Australian example of successful cultural change leading to a remarkable business turnaround. From the airline she moved to a senior role in Coles/Myer and then to private consulting.
In over 20 years as a private consultant working with clients such as Qantas, KPMG, Salmat, Moore Stephens Accountants, NSW Department of Housing, Queensland Rail, TAC, Austrade, Geelong Football Club, ANZ, NAB and Telstra, Margaret has focussed on developing organisational effectiveness and improved business outcomes with Australian and international businesses. In this role she has specialised in supporting organisations and leaders to improve business performance by focusing and mobilising the potential, skill and commitment of their people and has worked with people at all levels, from front-line to Executive Teams.
Her areas of expertise include leadership development, customer service improvement, management development, consultant training, cultural change. Using these experiences she speaks about the real the world, the world of demands and meetings and too little time and helps people believe that they can take charge of their own career and contribute if they choose to do so.
Margaret holds a Master's Degree in Education and is accredited in the use of a number of behavioural diagnostic tools including the Human Synergistics tools (Lifetime Accreditation), The Leadership Circle, MBTI and DISC.
Believing that time and energy should be used to feed the soul as well as earn a living, Margaret spends some of her spare time working on archaeological digs, hiking, travelling and writing and is currently editing a manuscript about the time she spent living in the USA that she hopes will soon be her first published book.
Margaret connects to people, connects people to ideas, connects ideas to action and provides the springboard for action.
This very clear focus, allied with a warm and engaging presentation style and a commitment to creating a high quality presentation tailored to the particular needs of your organisation will contribute to the success of your next event and help make the investment of all that time and energy well worth it!
