Strong Leadership and Good Governance
Move Organisations Forward
In addition to having completed the prestigious Company Directors Course and being a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD), I have held a number of senior leadership roles throughout my career.
This has taught me the importance of structures, transparency and accountability while also keeping an open mind about how the world is changing around us. As individuals, teams and organisations, we need to constantly assess our position and adapt to reach our goals without losing sight of our vision and respecting our unchanging core values.
With a belief in diversity and questioning, communication is central in my role of leading teams to higher performance. Beyond this, I believe the leader is there to support and develop team and individual capabilities.
