Birgitta joined Synergy Global as Team Leader – QLD in 2020.
She believes in the importance of connecting to who we truly are & authenticity. In these uncertain times it is more important than ever, to lead ourselves first. She has seen how many people try to ‘fit in’ & no longer feel congruent, which leads to a state of stress affecting their overall performance. People who lose connection can feel stuck, undervalued & start doubting themselves in the workplace & in private. When not addressed this might lead to chronic stress, feelings of overwhelm, frustration & even burn-out.

Having worked with C-Suite Execs, Senior Leaders & Multi-disciplinary Teams at all levels for >25yrs, Birgitta has extensive experience in creating & delivering synergistic collaboration & common purpose across various stakeholders. She has partnered with some of the largest enterprises worldwide & also start-up SMEs – aligning values-based visions to a well-defined Strategy, co-leading change programs, & creating innovative solutions.

Birgitta is passionate, inquisitive, insightful & dedicated to creating value-based outcomes for clients. She challenges them to be open-minded & shift perspective to gain clarity & energy by pursuing what they want most. She especially enjoys helping women leaders to tap into their full potential.

In her coaching practice Birgitta brings together the latest of Psychology, Neuroscience, Physiology & Philosophy, mixing it with her business acumen & background in Social Economic History with underpinning technology.
