Sally spent over 15 years forging a career in the traditionally male-dominated agricultural and software/tech industries and the opportunities and challenges in navigating these.
She has an interest and passion in empowering emerging and experienced women in ‘leadership’ roles – those with and without titles. She believes that armed with a different way of observing and interacting with others, many of her previous work relationships and outcomes could have been very different. She wants to share these learnings with others.
Sally has a young daughter who she loves spending her days with interspersed with lots of coffee, running, yoga, reading and working with Oasis PC for mental balance.
Phil Timms (Consultant)

Phil provides individual coaching services in the Oasis team bringing a wealth of experience to his engagement with people.
When Phil isn’t studying or working there is often a guitar in his hands or he is spending time with his two delightful girls.
