Occasionally, we meet someone who has managed to change the direction of 100s of lives. This person usually has a vision and a dream of innovation and change in the world. She sees a flaw in the way things have been done for years and takes a risk, affecting many others along the way. For Partners in Performance, this game-changer is Skipp Williamson, founder and Managing Director at Partners in Performance.
Skipp started in 1996 when she realised there was a better way to assist businesses in delivering big, rapid and sustainable results. She was tired of producing reports for clients and knew the answer was to deliver real results instead, by focusing on performance and accountability. Prior to founding Partners in Performance, Skipp worked for McKinsey & Company. She is an active member of Chief Executive Women, was a finalist in the 2013 Australian Financial Review and Westpac Group's 100 Women of Influence awards, and was named as one of Australia's top 5 most influential consultants in 2018 by the Australian Financial Review.
Skipp is married to her wife, Carol, and with two kids, her family life takes over after work. Skipp spends her weekends with her son at his opera competitions, and with her daughter at her horse riding and showjumping competitions. When she does have some extra time to herself, she tries to squeeze in a yoga session or a swim. Skipp also enjoys dinners with friends when the opportunity arises.
