CEO & Entrepreneur


Trish was transitioning from her third successful CEO role and was at a crossroads. She has been a CEO for over a decade and thought that this defined her future career, yet she wanted a role that aligned with her interests, values and ethics. Looking not just for a new job but for a direction that would motivate and inspire, she wondered which road to take.


Career Crossroads was engaged as a mentor. Working closely with Trish they helped her recognise her strengths and motivators, unpick assumptions and reframe the concept of her career. Career Crossroads asked those important questions, leading Trish to consider different opportunities.


Through Career Crossroads mentoring, Trish has started on a new path that she finds incredibly enjoyable. She has launched a start-up—a direction she never thought she’d take—and is travelling the globe, advising and inspiring business on a matter that is dear to her heart: circular economy.

“She finds her new global influence exciting and rewarding.”
