Singularity Expert: Future of Learning, Leadership

In my role as Founder & Joint Managing Director at Maximus, one of Australia’s most progressive futurefocused leadership firms, I am responsible for the firm’s future strategy, enterprise capabilities to deliver it, thesponsorship of exceptional relationships and the portfolio of offerings that differentiate our experience. Wehave built on decades of know-how, progressive partnerships, dynamic solutions, strong theoretical researchand commercial nous with humanity and heart.At the heart of it, I am an entrepreneur, psychologist and commercial advisor to leaders seeking progressivesolutions and advocate for the criticality of strong leadership and legacy. I have witnessed the impact of greatleadership and the absence of it. I believe leadership is both a privilege and responsibility, and that connectingpersonal purpose with a compelling future-focused vision leads to the creation of visionary companies.This aspiration must be backed by the capabilities and discipline to deliver impact at scale.
