About us

Why  Freerthinking exists.

Mary Freer is on a mission to deepen our awareness and strengthen our accountability. She is bringing compassion front and centre to our moral and economic imagination. 

The world of work; the way we deliver healthcare; the systems we build to ensure our communities thrive; the leadership we grow; and the emotional and physical wellbeing of those working to keep us well — this is where the new world is being made.

“What I notice, is the great reservoir of goodness — the people who want to make the world of work more beautiful, the leaders who are ready to reckon with our past, the willingness to find a way through that keeps hope alive.”  
Mary Freer



Mary Freer offers coaching to a small number of select leaders. One on one sessions are held monthly over a one year period. 

Mary says, “Leaders need to know how to hold power and distribute it — and they need to seek out diverse voices and find common ground. This work takes courage and practice. I’m interested in the interior world of leaders and how I can help them build the muscle for compassion. This is how we achieve great things.”
