Ali Tocker


Ali has worked in leadership, coaching and change for over 25 years, and has been involved in developing leaders both nationally and internationally. She partners with businesses, teams and individuals to create a development process that is specific and highly relevant to the areas of the people she works with.

Ali is a practically-minded leadership consultant and coach, known for her accessible style and extensive knowledge of how people develop most effectively at work.

She is best known for being an early adopter and a strategic thinker in her work. Because she can see patterns and identify bespoke solutions that are both practical and effective, she connects easily with people, and is able to operate within complex environments to support the successful development of senior leaders.

Ali has extensive strategic facilitation experience and is a highly respected coach who works from a viewpoint that people work best when they are interested and engaged in their own development - her style is coaching alongside, using the expertise of both parties in the coaching partnership.

Ali has worked throughout Aotearoa New Zealand at a team, strategic and board level with a wide range of organisations - government departments, not-for-profit organisations, educational institutes and universities, privately owned companies and community-based initiatives.

Ali has been involved in the design and development of professional training for 25 years, was Branch Services Director at the Institute of Chartered Accountants, and redesigned branch services when compulsory professional development was adopted. She also wrote the curriculum for the Bankers Institute Study Programme.
