Refreshbiz rolled out of its entrepreneurial fruit bowl at the end of 2016. Its mission is to get alongside and help rehydrate organisations and individuals who have simply run out of energy, new ideas and creative juices.


 The Chief Refresher has created a zesty menu around executive coaching and mentoring; good governance education; strategy development and communication tips to assist those wanting to release themselves from same-old, same-old. 


Forget stodgy, formal and staid... Refreshbiz embraces lessons and learning from experience in media, national sports administration, local government senior management, consultancy and hospitality to help regain piquancy for you, your people and your place.

The Chief Refresher believes in achieving together. 

"The Chief Refresher was exceptional. She very quickly brought the Board and management together in the process."

"I have learnt mentoring is a journey of self-discovery.  It has been a wild and exciting adventure with some confronting moments and lots of laughs."
