Who I Help

I help individuals and teams in organisations large and small to have better conversations. Conversations are where problems are solved. It is also where many problems are born. I support new team leaders in their quest to be confident communicators. And, I help Operational Managers and Leaders transform team communication through understanding Conversation Cause & Effect.

Case Studies

Problems I Solve

In the workplace there are leaders, supervisors, managers, teams and employees that depend on clear, concise, connected and caring conversation. Their success, like that of the companies, and their safety depend on it.

Someone who promotes creativity, being able to look at the big picture while making sure the detail is in place. An awesome human with a big heart and a lot to give, generosity in spirit and being." Nuala Gage, Performance Solutions Manager I worked with Ms Karin Ovari on the drilling vessel Leif Eriksson in 2007. Karin was there as a trainer in HSE safety behavior.. We worked closely as I was the HSE advisor onboard this vessel. She was extremely professional in her approach to training and related very well to the crew who spoke mainly Portuguese. Her presentations were clear and concise, and the behavioral based training helped many personnel realize the importance and relevance of their thought processes and attitudes and the resultant effect this can have in the workplace. I would definitely recommend Karin to any company looking to improve their safety practices. Bryan Loader, HSE Advisor
