Who the Heck is Yvonne?

If time travel was possible, we could go back to my birth and likely see a well-intentioned fairy godmother standing at the foot of my cradle saying, “She will love to dig.” This would explain why I later became an archaeologist. It may also explain why I love to dig into the workings of human nature. It would also help explain why I love helping people do their own digging.

Too often, I find that people are either afraid of asking ‘why’ or of the answer they’ll receive. I get it. It’s much easier to learn from others’ mistakes. It’s safer. But, ultimately, do you learn anything from not asking or not doing?

My favourite question is “Why?” I ask “Why?” through anthropology, consulting, and creativity.

Yvonne has a deadly combination of intelligence, good common sense, practicality, and solid training.
