Managing Partner – Business Advisory

Email: sharn@pod.co.nz

In my capacity as coach, mentor and advisor, I am privileged to partner with business leaders as they become top performers in their respective industries. With diverse roles globally, I have gained deep knowledge and expertise in strategic management, business growth, commercial management, human resources and organisational development. I use this skill set and experience to drive results within a business – be that one that I am leading or in a business where I work alongside other leaders.

I have been CEO of an Australasian accounting and business advisory firm; and, been the proud owner of POD, which was acquired in 2018 by AdviceFirst. At AdviceFirst, I am Head of Business Consulting, where I lead the team of advisors across strategy, finance, HR, sales and marketing, in an effort to ensure that our offering delivers what our clients want, need and value.

When it comes to R&R, I am more often than not doing yoga, teaching yoga, unwinding on the paddle board, relaxing at the beach, undertaking a home renovation project or spending quality time with my family.
