I am an oxymoron wrapped in an enigma. I have a heart as big as Melbourne’s coffee culture and yet commenced my career in Investment Banking putting together multi-million dollar deals. Confused yet?
Combining 18 years’ experience in international financial markets, where I engineered and negotiated complex financial strategies for commercial enterprises, and my recent work in community services and the education sector, the common thread is that I take a practical no-nonsense approach in implementing radical business ideas.
Collaboration with visionary thinkers, being prepared to challenge the status quo and building sustainable businesses through innovation, practical and positive action have been hallmarks of my career, irrespective of field. Ultimately, I believe that business is a catalyst for socio-economic empowerment.
