What is your role at LV?
I'm general manager of leadership development, and I coordinate the great team of people who provide LV's leadership development activities. That includes Williamson, Ignite and our board leadership programs; as well as developing customised programs for other organisations. Recently we delivered leadership programs to a group of French-speaking women visiting from West Africa and also to a delegation from Thailand.
My busy team also coordinates LV's guest speakers and events, such as Alumni lunches and our evening Salon events.

What do you do at Leadership Victoria? I’m the Program Manager for Ideas; I pick up on a lot of contemporary ideas and recent research around leadership, culture and change and I filter these ideas into the LV programs and events. I am responsible for the Leader-in-Residence program and I feel very lucky to be working with Chris Kotur our current LIR. I am also beginning work at developing LV’s presence in the virtual space.

What do you do at LV?
My role at LV is Program Manager, Projects. This means that I am responsible for the SkillsBank Program. This program is a key way in which Alumni make real and significant contributions to the community, be it through mentoring, board placements, providing strategic advice and so on. I have recently been exploring and developing other ways in which our Alumni can utilise their leadership and professional skills. This has involved the development of projects that are cross sectoral and innovative.
