Maureen Scholefield

I am Maureen Scholefield, Managing Director of Cullen Scholefield which I founded in 1986. I am an HR strategist and well renowned speaker with a wide range of experience in many different sectors. This enables me to provide our clients with creative and pragmatic ideas to resolve their management and people issues.

I am a great believer in leading by example and my People skills are delivered in a consultative style, encouraging independence with a deep belief in the praise rather than blame culture. I am passionate about developing people and believe in the value of engaged people and the impact they have on growth. I believe that challenging traditional management methods to ensure collaboration is at the heart of all vibrant enterprises.

Here at Cullen Scholefield we practice what we preach, which is why we have been accredited with the Investors in Gold Standard 3 times in 2010, 2013 and 2016, and in 2017 we were recognised by Investors in People as being one of the best Gold Standard organisations in the 2-49 employee category.
