Michelle Crouch

Director - Operations and Coach

Michelle joined Dattner Grant in 2005 to manage the financial operations of the business. She was appointed the Director of Operations in July, 2015 and is responsible for the overall operations of Dattner Grant and ensuring the business has a highly constructive working environment and quality processes to support it. She is responsible for all of the activities in the organisation which contribute to the effective delivery of client services including financial management, information systems, reporting to the partners of Dattner Grant, overall staff engagement and performance processes. She continues to manage all areas of financial and management accounting to help keep the business aligned with and responsive to client account needs and current legislation. Her commitment, attention to detail and organisational skills greatly facilitate the financial operations of our business.

Her role as a coach is to enable people to become the best of themselves. Michelle listens actively and empowers people to bring out the skills and creativity they already possess, rather than instruct or advise. It means developing a 'constructive and positive' mindset to transform their life with greater meaning and purpose to enable them to live a more fulfilled life.

Michelle is passionate about her contribution to Dattner Grant's Global Women's Projects including Compass, a transformational leadership program for women and Homeward Bound, a 10 year initiative to equip a 1000 strong global collaboration of women with science backgrounds to lead, influence and contribute to policy as it informs the future of our planet.

Michelle brings a wealth of experience and diverse interests to the Dattner Grant team, gained from many years' experience in office/finance management.

She cares about the wellbeing of herself, the people around her and the planet we live in. She believes each and every one of us has the capacity to shape the world we want, to make a difference together.
