Without a healthy planet all the money in the world will not save things - nor make you happy!

What was the most valuable thing you got out of CSL?

To trust myself, my leadership skills and potential

Why are you passionate about sustainability?

I've always been driven to make this world 'better'. For me that is best achieved through sharing my passion and knowledge for the environment. My transition to 'change maker' has been gradual, and through relationships built and feedback received I have stepped up to this role.

How did CSL play a role in directing your current path or project?

CSL confirmed that I am on the right path. Whilst what I experienced through the course was challenging at times, it also made me more determined to succeed.

Why is leadership for sustainability important?

Without a healthy planet all the money in the world will not save things - nor make you happy!

What do you plan to do next on your sustainability journey?

Take the next step up

What are three words you would use to describe the Fellowship Program?

Inspiring, supportive, challenging
