In 1988, with a degree in Anthropology and Philosophy, a love of books, and a stutter that made me self-conscious and reticent to speak in public, I was sent to a small gold-mining town 800 kilometres north of Perth, as a welfare officer. My first task was to escort a 14-year-old girl to a juvenile detention centre in Perth. So began a three-year rollercoaster ride in welfare that continues, 30-odd years later, to influence much of my writing.
Since then I’ve worked as a barman, anthropologist, historian, editor, archivist, writer and currently lecture at the University of South Australia. I have a doctorate on the moral subtext of Aboriginal oral history and am the author of a history (The Last Protector) a collection of short stories (The Colour of Kerosene), two short films, and a novel (First Person Shooter).
I have coached public speaking for Rostrum Australia, and have twice been a finalist in their South Australian speaker of the year competition.

Creating Kiikstart, early 2008, my mantra is to provide businesses and individuals with the skill and tactics needed to design the future and keep re-designing it in a world that is increasingly disruptive.

Over the last 25 plus years my career has had a solid mix of working with leading edge retailers, marketing and communications, learning and development and cultural and business re-design with a focus on entrepreneurialism.

Clients have included a diverse community including universities, national FMCG brands, local government, Financial Advisory firms , Outback Tourism and Hospitality legends and individuals looking to design a new career at a cross roads.

People choose me when they want new ways to solve persistent business problems .Or they may be at a career cross roads and need a strategic and creative sounding board.

My approach combines strategy, learning and development ,resource and process design plus real world trial and experimentation of new ideas.

Learning is accompanied by actions that are both pragmatic and measurable while leading to new processes, systems, skill, products and experiences.

My community is looking for more than traditional leadership training and have the courage and vision to reflect and ask WHAT IF?

My drive and passion is taking on challenges and finding new opportunities. I don’t do easy projects and love to do the work that requires creativity, courage and a curious mind .

Experience has taught me that innovation does not come from strength but from the ability and courage to look at skill gaps and risks and have the talent to turn it into something valuable. This approach has seen me successfully work across multiple businesses in Australia and over 2000 people employed in a variety of roles since 2008.

I am not a Consultant and if people need a label it would be thinker, facilitator, designer and activist.

People and businesses work with me when they are facing not only transition but also times of growth and acquisition when they must be looking at re-designing how business operates and the talent of their people.

I am driven to continually design and deliver ways of learning better and faster without comprising quality and have made a commitment to my own learning.

This commitment saw me study on site at Stern Business School – New York University in 2019 where I had the benefit of bench marking my talent while gaining new inspiration and tactics. This experience has led to new products and models of service delivery.

I am the founder, producer, and co-host of the Career Sessions podcast. I love research and I am very curious about what is going on in the world around me. My friends would describe me as strong, friendly, inventive, altruistic, and intelligent. I am a tutor and researcher in health sciences, a mother of two very cool daughters, a wife of a Scottish husband, co-director of Alui Altum Consultants in Adelaide, advisory board member of the Tisserand Institute, Chair of my daughter’s School Governing Council, and now I can add podcaster to my list of career highlights! I grew up in NSW, mostly on the Central Coast and Sydney, lived in Scotland for ten years where I got to itch my travel bugs, and am now based in Adelaide, trying to launch Tamara Inc. (That is not the real name….)

After 16 gap years, a variety of jobs, travel, and a child, I undertook my first degree in Edinburgh, Scotland and I graduated with a first-class honours degree in Health Science. I moved back to Australia and won a University of South Australia Postgraduate Award (USAPA) to study full time in the PhD program in Adelaide.

I have a strong and keen interest in health research, and in particular in the areas of ageing, digital health and complementary medicine. Complementary medicine is an enormous and growing industry that costs the consumer a significant amount of cash every time the purchase a product or see a practitioner. I am keen to dispel myths, and highlight where there is some benefit, or at least the start of proof, in science. I will live and die on the hill of rigour in research.
