Soon to be semi retired CEO of 30 years standing

I have been in senior management for just over 30 years. I have been the CEO of 5 Separate Non Government Organisations in both Victoria and the NT.

I am also the Director of a small business called Properway which aims to focus on 'proper' Governance, consultation and evaluation. I am a Director (treasurer) of the Alcohol and Other Drugs Agencies NT (AADANT), the peak body for the sector in the NT as well as a Board member for the Australasian Therapeutic Communities Association (ATCA). My passion and expertise is in helping repair Organisations that find themselves in difficulty or are struggling with management and/or governance. I am a non Aboriginal woman although my husband is a Yorta Yorta man and my adopted son is from the Ganai in Gippsland and the Arrente people of Central Australia. This is only relevant as it has afforded me the benefit of understanding the Aboriginal world view and a knowledge of traditions and culture seldom experienced by non-Aboriginal Australians. I live in Alice Springs and am currently the CEO of DASA which was struggling a few years back and is now an organisation that is held in high esteem by all levels of Government. Naturally I don't take all the credit for this transformation as I have developed an excellent leadership group, all of whom participate in the decision making of the organisation. It is my intention to semi retire in the first half of 2019, but with full retirement out of the question, I still have a lot to offer, I love a challenge and am no where near ready to simply fade away.
