In this dynamic digital age, the boundaries of a community are limitless. In a sector where women are underrepresented, Top 100 Women empowers an explosion of worldwide, cross-sector and multi-generational connections to form a community that is bound by common interests, problems, insights, and opportunities that traditionally would not exist. It enables an ecosystem to educate, connect, inspire, champion, and push for progress; whilst delivering a safe environment to affirm that everyone belongs and inspire others to participate.
Throughout my career as a CEO, entrepreneur and advisor I have been driven by innovation and finding ‘better and smarter ways’ for buildings, cities and communities to operate. My mission is to transform the notion of ‘how things should be done’, by driving our industry forward and championing innovation to propel the sector globally.
This platform has afforded me the opportunity and privilege to advocate for subjects I am passionate about. I present globally on topics such as digital disruption, innovation and ecosystem enablement. Additionally, I am also actively involved in social enterprise, international relations, and industry policy. However, my real motivational driver is the pursuit of perpetual learning. I am a keen spokesperson and contributor to educational and research institutions, engaging and seeking to inspire the next generation of leaders, who are passionate about promoting diversity, equality and inclusion, as well as a key focus on supporting women to pursue leadership roles.
My personal and professional journey has had me tackle many obstacles, such as debunking stereotypes; taken me from an accidental to an intentional leader; and helped me discover my authentic self. I now aspire to ignite others to own their self-worth, develop their voice and actively use it to influence change.
