Director, Marketing and Educator
From a very early age, my creative and entrepreneurial personality and my enjoyment of competitive sports has determined how I choose to live my life as a fearless self-starter.
I have always been curious and seek out knowledge that I need to pursue my dreams, and I keep learning until I am satisfied that the answers will give me the results I want.
I am fortunate that I enjoy a unique combination of skills, where I combine my passion for creative pursuits with a love of technology – a glamourous geeky individual.
I am inspired by fashion and its freedom for self-expression and its ability for reinvention, and I love the geekiness of technology and the opportunity it presents to turn dreams into reality.
I started my first of many entrepreneurial ventures while still in high school, making clothes and selling them to my friends.
After leaving school I taught myself the main commercial software tools used by business, and developed education and training courses teaching others how to use these software programs.
After a decade or more of perseverance trying different things, it all took off for me when I launched my millinery business – creating couture hats for weddings and Sydney’s horse racing carnivals.
For over 30 years I also worked for several highly innovative telecommunications and computer software companies in human resources, marketing, and training and development.
This allowed me to launch a new business focused on website development, intranets, market research, online marketing, ecommerce, creating training portals for clients, as well as audio/video production.
I was an Angel Investor (cash and mentoring) in several startups, I continue to publish and contribute to several Blogs.
With BusinessNavigateAcademy I am now able to bring together everything that I have learned in areas as diverse as creativity, technology, training.
In my free time I like to go skiing, sailing, playing tennis, salsa dancing and enjoying time relaxing at the beach. I am always striving to create a balanced life.
Oh yes, I love going to the ballet!
The graceful movements of ballet dancers and their dedication to practice in the pursuit of their craft.
