I am an experienced business owner and CEO, with a track record of success across many industries. During my career as a senior manager I have developed efficient economic and marketing strategies for small businesses, medium sized companies and large non-profit associations.
I have a Bachelor of Commerce degree majoring in Management and Legal Studies. My business acumen and ability to dissect and understand large amounts of data, has enabled me to manage several companies, including my own, through periods of rapid economic growth. My digital and traditional marketing expertise enabled me to turn a small graphic arts supply company into an industry recognised provider of software, support and IT solutions specialising in the publishing industry.
I was successful in obtaining my position as General Manager of Publishers Australia because of my experience in managing a large and diverse client base with vastly differing needs, as well as my ability to develop strong relationships with key stakeholders and vendors. In this role I have been responsible for the day-to-day operations of a non-profit organisation with a large membership base.
I have organised and hosted conferences, events and seminars across Australia, introducing key international vendors to local business, whilst managing contracts and vendor expectations along the way. All of my projects have involved fundraising activities and all of my projects have returned a profit.
My network of contacts includes CEOs and Managing Directors, many of whom I have worked with at Board level.
I love creative writing and have a few 'work in progress' stories gathering dust on my hard drive including my first novel Pine Gap, which is all but ready to go.
