Corporate Innovation, Media and Communications



I am an Australian business journalist and workshop facilitator.

I have designed and facilitated numerous workshops with corporates to explore innovative ideas, customer perspectives and new business models. These workshops are based on Design Thinking and Lean Startup methodologies.

I’ve also anchored several media programs on tech, small business and innovation. 

I have worked with a number of companies including Boral, American Express, TAL Insurance, ING, Euronews, Sky Business News and Fishburners, Australia's largest co-working space for startups.



Communications: With a background in investor relations and media, I can write media releases, interview scripts, feature articles, advertising copy and blogs.

Presenting: I have anchored different business innovation programs including Techbiz for Sky Business News and the Startup Accelerator on business app, Bizversity. 

Workshop FacilitatorUsing Design Thinking and Lean Startup methodologies, I design and facilitate workshops that help companies validate or invalidate their new idea. I use tools such as the Lean Canvas, personas, empathy maps as well as creative problem solving techniques. By the end of the workshop, teams will have insight into the desirability, feasibility and viability and be able to present the opportunity in a compelling way. 

Event Host: I am an experienced MC and facilitator of panel discussions having hosted a number of international conferences with government, entrepreneurs and corporate innovation experts.
