Yvette Henderson

Senior Consultant

“Projects where the client group grows in knowledge, skills, and abilities are meaningful to me. Watching the light switch on and knowing I have been a part of that gives me a great sense of satisfaction.”
What piques your curiosity or where do you seek out inspiration?

In nature and colour. Specifically, the beauty of the ever-changing ocean, which can really change my mood. It both inspires my thought and creativity and calms me to empty my mind.

What invigorates you creatively, spiritually or emotionally?

The ocean, nature (especially flowers), absolutely food – both cooking & eating, watching my family evolve individually and as a unit, creating.

Could you tell us about somebody who has given you sage wisdom in the past?

My son! Quite recently in fact. It’s ok to disagree, it doesn’t mean we love each other any less.

Which of our Keogh values speaks to you the loudest? Why?

Humanism. Everyone is different, but has unique value. That value sometimes needs to be unlocked. Acknowledging the “special-ness” inside of others and unlocking their potential is reward in itself.

Which projects have been the most meaningful to you and why?

Projects where the client group grows in knowledge, skills, and ability. Watching the light switch on and knowing I have been a part of that gives me a great sense of satisfaction.

Could you tell us a story about a moment of realisation in your lifetime?

Realising I may not be alive today, save for one brilliant pioneering surgeon, who dared to think and work outside the box, and parents who refused to give up.

When, where, or with whom do you feel the most fulfilled?

When I help others switch that light on, to make a positive difference in their lives and well-being. But hands down, with my immediate family.
