Bio

My 30 + years in business has given me an international career spanning across the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong and back to Perth, Western Australia. I have worked in various industries and thrived on the diversity of those roles. I believe the Industry that ticks all of my boxes and has given me the most challenging yet rewarding moments in my career is the flexible workspace solutions Industry. Everything about the business is exciting, fresh and ever-changing. You never have a boring day and getting to meet and support so many incredible business leaders, new start up’s, SME’s and big blue-chip organisations is an experience that has, and still does give me great insight and learning opportunities.
