Rhoda Nolan

As one of the co-founders and Partners of Maybe International, Rhoda has over 20 years experience in assessing and shaping diverse client project needs, design and delivery to achieve new levels of performance. With this seasoned eye, Rhoda is a passionate team lead on business development and loves nothing more than meeting new people and exploring new possibilities with them.

Rhoda loves a challenge and has a great ability to work in a real team way to support, empower, go after and make meaningful and important things happen. This is a rock-solid strength that she brings not only to the Maybe team but to all client projects enabling them to tackle key business challenges with fresh creative thinking, strengthen their existing leadership competencies, and build the creative teamworking and problem-solving skills for continuous innovation and performance improvement.

Prior to co-founding Maybe International, she worked with American Consultancy firm Synectics® Corporation – a firm specialising in creativity and innovation – for over 15 years and worked on a wide range of multi-national assignments for global corporations such as Unilever, Kraft Foods, Coca Cola, Walker Snack Foods and Glanbia plc.

When she isn’t working Rhoda loves to spend her time socialising with friends and family, playing golf and piano, going to the theatre and cinema, reading, travelling and meeting new people.



We in Maybe International can confidently say that all participants in our programmes on Leadership will gain many new and exciting insights into how managing in a more human way will enable them to achieve new levels of performance both in themselves and in their people, performance that will deliver ever better business results.

Working with Maybe International is a unique experience. Our whole leadership philosophy and approach has been developed with the central focus of bringing out the greatness in people  - unlocking the enormous potential that is waiting to be realised in each person. We know that nurturing this inner potential in a creative and honest manner will ensure they achieve more than they imagine is possible and empower them to do real justice to themselves and their organisations.

We believe that this level of improvement will be achieved by managing and leading with integrity and effectiveness and it is this belief, and fidelity to it, that enables managers to lead their organisations so successfully.
