A Partner in SHK’s outplacement and career transition practice, Antonia is passionate about guiding her clients through the intricacies of change with confidence and sound judgement.

The foundations of Antonia’s approach are drawn from her many years’ experience in executive search and relationship management, both in Australia and the UK.

Through her innate ability and strong desire to connect with and help people, Antonia has also developed a passion for mentoring candidates to bring out their best, applying her market expertise to build resilience and confidence into their journeys.

Antonia creates a space for honest discussion, constructive feedback and an opportunity to re-explore a sense of purpose, leading to improved decision-making and significant professional and personal growth. She consistently achieves positive outcomes for candidates, drawing from her executive search background and empathetic mentoring skills.
