Meet Our Team

Rebecca Livesey and Angela Koning created Hooked on
Leadership to help leaders build cohesive teams and navigate
any challenge with certainty, presence and service.

Rebecca and Angela met in 2012 when they were working as leadership consultants in Queensland. After a few conversations, Rebecca and Angela connected over their passion for leadership and saw an opportunity to creative a unique experience for leaders and their teams – no boardrooms, or stale team building exercises, but instead an experience that took leaders and teams away from their comfort zones and put them in a unfamiliar environment. Together they combined their collective skills and put together a program like no other.

Hooked on Leadership helps you improve your leadership and team work through horsemanship. We focus on developing certainty, presence and service in your style to help improve engagement and results in your team.
