You've hired the best brains in your industry, now let's create workplaces where they can perform at their best.

I design and deliver interventions that enable your experts to bring their best brainpower to work every day.  It is all about focus, mental well-being and team collaboration so your people can sustainably perform at their best.

The programmes are bespoke developed to fit the client's needs, culture and team dynamics. Examples programmes include

  • Thriving in a Crazy Busy World

Short, sharp overview of digital overload and managing work-life integration. 1 hour webinar or F2F

  • Focus in the Age of Distraction

Deep dive into personal productivity, deep focus and managing mental energy for consistently and sustainably peak performance. 1 day or 7 x 1hr  modules as on-line programme

  • Well-being in a Digital World

Developing a culture in your workplace that supports high performance without burning out. Team or department intervention to manage mental well-being while reducing organisational drag (eg unproductive meetings, over-emailing). 9 to 12 month programme with 1 module per month (1-2 hours)

Before starting my own business 7 years ago I had two decades of corporate experience in knowledge-intensive industries in international HR roles in USA, Switzerland, New Zealand and Norway. My clients include Roche, PwC, Bayer, Abbot, Alexion, Credit Suisse.

Being naturally curious about people I studied organisational psychology to a Masters level and became a New Zealand Registered Psychologist. Later I completed an Executive MBA at Henley Management College in UK to strengthen my business skills. Further studies in Adult Learning and coaching lead to being an accredited coach with the ISCP (International Society of Coaching Psychologists).  I love to write and am the author of the book Focus in the Age of Distraction, an Amazon best-seller. Also written articles in Employment Today, Human Resources, Pharma Times, Private Banker International.....

Originally born and raised in New Zealand, I've travelled and lived overseas, living the last 18 years in Switzerland. I think I bring the best of both cultures by combining Kiwi creativity with Swiss efficiency.  You'll find me most weekends in the outdoors, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, hiking or cycling depending on the season.

Jane's facilitation and training style is very participatory, engaging and energetic. She is a true professional in team development, leadership and interpersonal skills and other areas of people development. All the training courses had participants from several offices across the world and Jane is very good into taking into account cultural differences and different backgrounds of participants.

It was a pleasure working with Jane Piper to offer a Curious Course on claiming back your spare time - how to focus your attention and energy. She is highly professional, enthusiastic and an excellent presenter. I recommend her as a speaker and look forward to working with her again in the future

Curious Courses
The wellbeing training brought previously unrecognized issues to light and gave our staff the language to express how they were feeling. This opened the way to a series of discussions that allowed management to initiate changes in how the company is managed and the way teams collaborate.
