Janet, as a founding partner of Etvia, wanted to create a consulting practise and software system specifically designed to support CEO’s and leaders in their most critical function – formulating and executing their strategy. She knows from experience what is required of an organisation’s culture and organisational processes and systems to build the discipline of execution into a core organisational and competitive strength. This is her strength and an area of business she had been drawn to and excels in. 
Janet is the architect of Etvia’s patented strategy management system etviaTRACE and OBP etviaTRACE the government system.  Both systems are cloud deployed and referenced by Gartner, the global leader in systems benchmarking, as the first solution to fully meet the long-standing corporate need for strategy deployment and execution management.

Prior to Etvia Janet excelled in the challenging tourism industry in CEO and corporate GM/Director roles in marketing, finance, people and culture and IT. The sector is known for requiring sharp management because of its tight operating margins, people and service focus and performance based agreements between asset owners and management companies. As CEO she was responsible for a turnover of $160m, 32 business units and 2,000+ staff. During this time Janet was also a key member of various the project teams including: two public floats ($400m), a successful international casino hotel tender with the Queensland government, 5 star hotel and entertainment complex design, construction, commissioning and opening project ($300m), capital raisings, mergers, acquisitions, management agreement negotiations, hotel/motel franchise network in Australia and New Zealand, national and regional hotel chain rebrands, central reservations and travel company start up. This wide range of firsthand experiences enables Janet to support senior leaders in a very grounded way. She understands the challenges and pressures leaders face when juggling the important issues that keep an organisational performing and the execution of the strategy to take the organisation and the team into the future… and deliver on both. Testimony to that are Etvia’s long standing clients and referrals founded on their reputation for genuine client partnerships and creating sustainable, scalable value.
