Something you may not know about me is this.....
( Oh....and before I begin I have to say I am not in the HABIT of starting every post in this way!! )
I have worked for 40 years in communication, leadership and educational roles, often at the forefront of change and innovation. Initially a NSW Registered Nurse I worked for 16 years in Education and Management roles bringing revolutionary change to Nurse Education in Australia. In 1989 I founded my own Advertising Agency, Take One Productions and won many awards including the NSW Northwards Tourism Award, Media Section and an award from Cacharel in Paris.
I have served on charitable boards as Chair or President, as well as devoting many hours supporting local community initiative such as the Fire and Ambulance Services. I enjoyed a pristine and high trust association with NSW Police supporting their Forensic services.
My organisational skills combined with my background as a miilliner, film and TV make up artist, experienced camera person and journalist, scriptwriter have forged the way for many creative productions. I was initially a stringer for the PRIME network then later freelanced for all networks in Australia. Contracts extended to 20;20 and 60 minutes to secure footage or interviews in regional NSW for national programming.
I have myself been in a range of commercials ( mostly for fun) and won the popular TV series The Chair using my improv acting skills, coming from first thought. I walked away with $5000 for answering 7 questions in 7 minutes and without stressing beyond my pre-determined stress rate.
THIS IS SIGNIFICANT ON A NUMBER OF FRONTS BECAUSE YOU SEE I DID NOT KNOW THE ANSWERS.....I JUST WENT WITH FIRST THOUGHT ! We sometimes don't know just how much we know!!
Which is the first rule of improv!
I have both improv and straight acting experience and pride myself on my ability to put people at ease and to foster the inherent good in those I work with.
My focus now is reaching a global audience of creative entrepreneurs to support and enable their full self expression this lifetime.
