    Why is community involvement important?

    Community involvement is at the heart of our business, we strive for empowering individuals who then bring the benefits back to their communities. The involvement of community is essential to engaging and activating its members to grow and develop, thus building the community that has supported them.

    Why do you think it is important across all industries to provide more opportunities for women?

    There is an old saying: “Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he eats for a lifetime.”…… But teach a woman to fish, and everyone eats for a lifetime

    Women are very powerful at networking, coaching and developing others to be the best they can be. So it makes sense to embrace women within all industries to ensure skills and knowledge are transferred to benefits everyone.

    What do you consider a healthy lifestyle?

    To me, a healthy lifestyle to me is one that has balance. I love to work hard and I balance that with good diet, exercise, brain training and of course, time with family and friends. I consider a healthy lifestyle to be one that is fulfilling, dynamic and constantly challenging me to achieve greatness.

    Why is cultural diversity so important in Australia?

    In fullness we understand. Cultural Diversity is not only the core of our business, but also a cornerstone of our nation. The cross cultural interaction we see on our students help them develop understanding and empathy.

    Tell me about three people that have inspired you?

    Nelson Mandela: he survived 27 years in jail and never recounted, and then became Prime Minister of South Africa.

    Queen Elizabeth: she has had weekly meetings with 13 British Prime Ministers during her reign and yet never had a formal education, but rather once she became Queen hired tutors to gain an education

    My son: children see the world differently. Max brings joy, curiosity and energy to our house. He keeps me laughing so I don’t take the world too seriously.
