Q: What is the most important lesson you have learned as a businesswoman?
A: I love this question but find it very hard to succinctly answer as there are too many pearlers to share. I would say being myself, believing in myself, investing in myself and respecting myself. Authenticity and integrity go a long way in business and anyone taking shortcuts in these areas crash eventually.
Q: In your role, what do you consider are some of the barriers facing directors/ businesses today?
A: I don’t notice barriers, which is reflective in the career I forged for the past 26 years. Being the first female in Australasia to be director, shareholder and GM of an International shipping company and create joint ventures that many would consider too hard or impossible comes from an attitude that only understands Potential.
Q: How important is it to have a strong voice from a governance and board perspective?
A: I am a strong believer in doing things well. Having a strong and clear voice brings clarity and direction. These are important factors that contribute to a successful board with clear goals and objectives.
