Dr Annemarie Lombard

Founder and CEO of Sensory Intelligence® Consulting

With 30 years’ national and international clinical experience as an Occupational Therapist in Learning and Development, Dr Annemarie Lombard based her Doctorate research on comparing sensory assesss with performance, absenteeism and attrition in Contact Centres. As a result she obtained her PhD in Health Sciences from the University of Cape Town in 2012.  She has a particular interest in the dynamics of open plan, high-impact and virtual environments and how this influences performance, wellbeing and relationships.

This focus ties in with the overall vision to empower individuals, businesses and organisations for greater health, prosperity and success.

Although this is achieved through innovative and revolutionary thinking and doing patterns, the solutions and interventions are simple, practical, tangible and sustainable.
