About Damian

I help individuals and teams achieve their career goals and potential at work.

I have been involved in talent development since 2001 when I began coaching and executive recruiting. My joy comes from helping individuals achieve success and satisfaction in their careers, and organizations thrive through developing a Strengths-based culture. I love working with individuals at all stages of their careers - ranging from college students to CEOs.

As someone with Relator as their number 1 talent theme, my clients and I get to know each other well and form close relationships.
