Master your talents, create your art, always give generously and never give up on your loved ones or yourself. 

Hello, I’m Elizabeth an Archetype Specialist, Creative Producer and I have a passion for social change. I started my own multi-faceted business back in 1984 – with an extensive career in the world of personal and professional development, combined with studying Cinema and Film at Flinders University; I have applied this comprehensive body of knowledge to become an expert in the field of archetype branding for personal, career, business, and leadership development. I help people and businesses gain clarity about the value and culture connected to their story, their brand, and their purpose. I also create videos for purpose that validate people, culture and community.

As a co-founder and principal team member of NOW it is my pleasure and responsibility to uphold the vision and integrity of the NOW Leadership Inc. brand.
