With a proven international executive management track record, I am outcomes driven and achievement oriented, but people-centred above all else.
Prior to joining the Council, I was the General Manager – Education, Events, and International at The Australia and New Zealand Institute of Insurance and Finance, the leading membership, education, training and professional development organisation for the insurance and finance industry in the Asia-Pacific region. Previously, I held senior leadership positions in Cape Town, New Zealand and Australia at Pearson and their accreditation company, Edexcel.
My professional motto that has straddled my entire career is: Always Start and End with People.
