At Rock.Paper.Scissors, we’re on a mission to change the way the world works.
Whether that’s in the form of giving you and your team the skills they need to get out of their own heads and start truly working together instead of ending up in the same old conflicts and mental cul-de-sacs, training you in the tools you need to teach anything well, or creating a bespoke blend of the two to meet you and your organization right where it’s at and take things to the next level, we’re all in.
Using a mix of humour, humanity, and honest-to-goodness effective methodologies that we’ve honed over 30 years and 150+ countries with everyone from the UN to solopreneurs, we can’t wait to help you do your best work.
We’re all more than the sum of our parts — which means that I’m not going to try to trot out the slickest, shiniest nutshell version of myself for you.
Instead, I’ll let you choose. What do you want to know about?

After I had observing her skills I was motivated to stop complaining, observing and begin doing something for my community. As result I have co-founded a number of organizations aimed at elevating poverty and raising voices of the most marginalized in the community.

Lee-Anne quickly became one of the only adults I trusted in that time of my life. I tried hard to get her to adopt me but she declined lol. Lee-Anne believed in me and gave me the opportunity to use my voice and grow in my public speaking and making a difference. I give her a lot of credit for my sanity in my later teenage years. It wasn't all necessarily work related she was and continues to be an amazing person and continues to bring joy in to people's lives.
