With a childhood steeped in a variety of musical activity, from conducting choirs, managing performances, arranging and teaching musical arrangements, to writing songs, I was offered a place at the Conservatorium of Music at the tender age of 16 and spent my first year in its recording studio while juggling classes and singing gigs. I have danced my way through a variety of roles: Song Writer, Performer, Artist Manager, Show Producer, Entertainment Agent, Business Manager, Systems Software Designer, Workplace Trainer and Assessor, to Event Manager, Publicist and Brand Consultant.
By working in so many roles with such a variety of organisations, it became very clear to me that we are all made of the same essence. We express this essence in different ways. Our Expression of our Essence will become our Brand.
Through my various partnerships with Universities and Training Organizations throughout Queensland developing programs for Interns, Traineeships and Volunteers in the Entertainment and Event industries and in particular while producing one of Australia’s most iconic community Festivals – Caxton Street Seafood and Wine Festival 2009-2014, I identified and tracked a series of patterns and behaviours that influenced the businesses of tens of thousands of people that I have worked with during this time.
As a result, I have designed two systems. The HOW - a Software program, AQUARIUS™ – an integrated CRM booking system that manages the sales and operations for entertainment industry businesses (managing Pushworth since 1999). The WHY - THE METRICULUS™ my signature development and training program.
Working with businesses across the globe on a variety of projects has taken me into these three specific Industries – Music, Health and Family Business. My latest project is Music Means Business where I work exclusively with Performing Artists to grow their brands and build their businesses as long term viable profit centre’s.
I have lurched from facilitating at Dr John F Demartini events in Australia, Britain and Ireland to managing his Australian community for several years. My qualifications in Training, Business Management Systems, Human Behavior and Performance put me in good stead to navigate through the politics that come with working in a large community. For a few years, I was the Business/Personal Development Columnist for the Inner Self Magazine and was honored to be nominated as an “Influential Woman of the 21st Century” as well as the Telstra Business awards. Probably the two projects I have enjoyed the most to date are The Sound Garden and Work Window - programs for Interns, Traineeships and Volunteers for the Entertainment and Event industries which I have done in partnership with Universities, Training Organizations and Schools throughout Queensland since 2003.
We all live, work and play in our own economy, culture, philosophy, currency, stage show, factory, identity, community and family. And for each one of these areas of your life, each of us have innately crafted a comprehensive structure and system. The Metriculus™ is one way to reorganize and reevaluate the organism that is your business. I have been providing Personal and Professional Development services for people across the globe in a variety of Industries – Music, Education, Health and Family Businesses since 2000. Driven to meet market needs, they have created their OWN model and that is what we work with together!
