In a world where disruption on every front is the new normal, curiosity and play are the most significant skills we have to navigate our future.
Curious minds are primed to adapt to change. Curious humans lean into uncertainty and pivot quickly. They create new possibilities, pathways and connections with others, and with ideas.
Curiosity is part of our evolutionary purpose, our ability to question and adapt is what’s kept us alive as a species. Now, as we stand on the threshold of an uncertain future, it’s time to muscle up our curiosity, and fast.
I’m multi award-winning designer, researcher, columnist, keynote speaker and Certified Facilitator of LEGO® Serious Play®, a methodology used by global brands like IKEA, Virgin and Samsung to boost innovation, creativity, human connection and problem solving.
I help organisations supercharge their most important resource: the humans who work for them.
Curiosity has sparked the biggest breakthroughs in history. So, when you foster it in the workplace, it connects people back to each other and empowers teams to unlock new approaches, create out-of-the-box solutions, and overcome longstanding roadblocks.
I’ve worked with companies like Commonwealth Bank of Australia, Deakin University, Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada, Microsoft, Mozilla Foundation, the Australian Computer Society and the RAC (WA) and the Department of Finance (WA) to unleash their curiosity and empower their people.
I’ve witnessed the power of curiosity and play as universal tools for human connection, and this has inspired to expand my work outside the boardroom with Lovego, where I’m creating the future of love and relationships. Lovego is an evidence-based dating method that empowers unstoppable women to have the same success in relationships as they have in business. And, because it’s powered by LEGO® bricks, it makes dating fun again.
In addition to being curious about all things human, I’m passionate about moving change in the right direction. As a SheEO Activator, I invest in women-led ventures through a radically new investment model designed to support businesses led by women that are focussed on solving social issues and ultimately create a perpetual fund that supports female-led ventures for generations to come.
I’m also an MHFA Accredited First Aider through the internationally acclaimed Mental Health First Aid Course, so I have the tools to help people stay well when dealing with change, transition and uncertainty.
I’ve been honoured as the Australian Computer Society’s Digital Disruptor Professional Achiever of the Year and one of the Western Australian Business News’ 40 under 40. I’m also a TEDx speaker and my work has been featured at the Toronto International Film Festival, the National Theatre in London and the new WA Museum.
The world is changing, fast, and we need to change with it. Whether you want to supercharge your business or life, curiosity is the superpower that will get you there.
