About us

Ignite Purpose was founded by Christina Foxwell in 2012, a business leader who felt there was a need to approach training and coaching from a new perspective. Christina recognised how people were central to the success of every organisation and, with a view to improve people and business performance, she set out to encourage employees to realise their potential.


Christina has built a proficient and enthusiastic team who are committed to motivating and empowering people within organisations. What keeps us going is hearing success stories from the people who have grown and subsequently impacted positively on their team. The changes we make in an organisation’s performance is a key ingredient for success in today’s global marketplace.


Ignite Purpose is based in Sydney, but can provide services throughout Australia, New Zealand and Asia.

How we do it

Ignite Purpose uses a variety of tools to help your company. In order to shift and lift performance we look at team alignment, executive coaching, leadership development and simulations. Our highly skilled consultants work with you to plan, guide and manage your people and the organisation, to reach their desired outcomes.


It starts with a conversation. We will tailor a program once we understand your performance requirements and the dynamics of your team. A series of tools and processes are then used to shape your program and create an experience that delivers results.


We remain active in the process to guide you and your business towards vision and growth. This helps your people reach the goals they want. Key success measures ensure sustainable culturing-forming outcomes and, following our sessions, participants will be confident, productive and deliver business results they believe in.
