The how-to guide to your career success

What’s been your proudest moment?

Q: What’s been your proudest moment?

A: I have many: becoming an editor at 23, creating Australian Good Taste – a new concept food magazine that launched in 1996, launching the Women’s Agenda website to advocate female leadership at work, seeing women I have employed, trained and mentored achieve their career goals, graduating with an MBA in front of my two sons, being asked to Chair the Wests Tigers NRL Club, landing my first ASX Board.

I have always wanted to be the person with the vision, directing the business or business unit and that hasn’t changed. However, my goals have progressed through specific roles from editor, to publisher, to C-suite executive, to non-executive director.

If you have any questions that you would like answered along the way, submit them in the comments below and I promise to respond in an upcoming post.
