I am a member of both Chartered Accountants Australia & New Zealand (CAAANZ) and the Australian Restructuring, Insolvency and Turnaround Association (ARITA) and have experience in all forms of corporate and personal insolvency administrations.

I have worked extensively in Outsourcing for over 15 years after the first 2 industries I worked in collapsed and ceased to exist due to the western obsession with paying less money for more product.
Realizing the inevitable progression to globalization I decided the best way to ensure a future career was to actually specialize in working with different cultures and scenarios in the Outsourcing world.
Over the course of this experience I realized that there were a multitude of factors that led to the failure of any outsourcing venture and typically a lack of competence with the employee or supplier was not a key factor.
Outsourcing usually failed due to Communication issues, Cultural Issues or the obsession with cost over value. My expertise allows me to see the inherent opportunities that exist, especially when it comes to Outsourcing for Small Businesses and to direct clients towards a more sustainable model and mindset.

About Colin Anson, CEO and co-founder of image protection platform, pixevety:
Colin Anson is a digital entrepreneur, and the CEO and co-founder of child image protection and photo storage solution, pixevety https://pixevety.com/
In 2012, Colin saw an opportunity to create a unique business within his area of passion, photography. He witnessed first-hand the potential risks and harm the mismanagement of photos can have on children. And he became an advocate for protecting every parent’s right to determine how their child’s photo is used, and protecting every child’s right to safety and digital privacy. After learning of the minefield of privacy laws and the daily stress for schools in managing and sharing the photos of every single student, Colin decided to do something about it. And pixevety was born.

Technology is changing the way we think, communicate and behave – some of it is good, some of it is not so good. For example, companies of any size can now compete on a level playing field, but older people struggle to adapt to constant change; vaccination rates are in decline because activists are better at using Google than the establishment... In this brave new world, how do we keep our humanity? How do we use our natural gifts and talents to prosper, regardless of age or status? How do we live in the age of the iBrain?
These are questions I like to explore.
Colleen likes to keep things creative in all that she does, often using marshmallows as a source of inspiration.
Everyone knows that ongoing learning is essential for both personal and professional success and yet, for many, this means hours of attending dead boring training or completing’ losing the will to live’ eLearning modules. Colleen’s mission is to end tedious professional development while ensuring targeted outcomes for learners and businesses.
Colleen has honed her skills over the last 20 years across multiple industries and locations. Her previous role saw her overseeing the training and development needs of over 60, 000 employees across 13 countries in the APAC region. This enabled honing skills that celebrated diversity and understanding human commonality through learning, and that in the absence of a common language, flip charts and coloured markers can overcome most challenging situations.
After taking a ‘go away package’, in 2019, Colleen founded her own business, Facilitated Training, harnessing her global learning experiences and sharing them through ready to use learning resources, specialising in leadership, mentoring, guest speaking, creative problem solving, filling the gap of high quality, customisable training resources and tools.

Ian is a successful sportsperson who has completed events such as Ironman, long distance Yacht races, Windsurfing Competition internationally and many other achievements. The determination and resolve it takes to achieve those goals is what Ian brings to the business world.

Getting past that mindset and realising that there is a different way is what I specialise in.
With a highly profitable business, you the business owner can afford to train the team better. With more profit, you can invest in better systems. And combining the 2 of these you can achieve goals you never thought possible.
My goal is to save the world one business at a time and to do that I choose to help as many businesses as possible become “a commercial, profitable, enterprise that works without you.

Jurie RossouwJurie is the Director of Driven and is a Member of the International Association of Clinical Neuropsychotherapy.
His focus is on building resilience at an individual, organisational, and global level. Throughout this quest, Jurie has worked for some of the largest organisations in Australia and globally in the field of resilience for more than 10 years. He has consulted with large banks, airlines, education institutions, mining, and more. Projects ranged from building resilience at cultural levels, through to enhancing business resilience at a process and resource level.
From this, he published two books in the Think Lean series, followed more recently by his new book, Executive Resilience, which delves into the neuroscience of cultural resilience, and how resilience will become more important as a skill to thrive in a digital environment.
Jurie has published three peer-reviewed research papers on The Predictive 6-Factor Resilience Scale, highlighting a new path to holistic resilience measurement. This work establishes six domains of resilience, providing a holistic and neuroscience-based view of resilience. Following the research publication, Jurie created The Predictive 6 Factor Resilience Scale – Clinical Guidelines and Applications. Jurie expanded the domains into a comprehensive resilience development curriculum in the Driven virtual coaching platform, further using insights into neuroplasticity to find more effective methods of learning integration and resilience enhancement.
Taking an approach of applied science, Jurie integrates an understanding of psychology, neuroscience, technology, risk and strategic management to build more effective ways to enhance resilience at all levels. As the director of Driven, Jurie has designed a virtual coaching platform to achieve resilience measurement and provide neuroscience-based training. This platform is used by psychologists, coaches, schools, and other organisations worldwide as a comprehensive resilience enhancement solution.

In his teens he discovered the great jazz innovators Theolonious Monk, Bill Evan; the rhythm of James Brown and the genius of Bach, Beethoven and Arnold Schoenburg. These were who helped Kory make music his calling in life.
“My first professional job as as musician was playing organ in an R&B band at a birthday party. We made two bucks each, which seemed a lot of money at the time. Man it was a blast!”

Recently Kory has returned to York University to realize his life-long dream of becoming fully bilingual in French. He also enrolled in an advanced composition course as well. His goal in this regard is to have access to the wealth of musicians, singers, choirs, and arrangers on campus, to experiment with in his compositions. He also expects to pick up additional tricks of the trade to add to his personal arsenal of composing.

Why is applying for Paid Parental Leave so complicated?
I’m Lisa - an accountant and a mum of two. When my son was born I remember staying up late trying to submit my application for Paid Parental Leave and I couldn’t understand why it was so damn difficult. I’m an Accountant, I should walk all over this! Turns out I’m not the only one who has been driven bloody mad trying to work it all out.
Second time around was much easier. I understood what I was doing and what I could do to get the best results for my situation. As time went on, I noticed that every time a friend was sharing their frustration with me about the Paid Parental Leave process, I realised that I was helping them with every step along the way. Sometimes it even saved them a trip into Centrelink.
With the feedback rolling in from my friends, and even my own husband, I began to see that I had a lot of knowledge on the subject but, more than that, I had a knack for making it...... simple.
I've gone through the websites, expended hours researching it all and I have read the legislation. I now have the solution to avoid all the stress and drama with getting your application completed and get you the money that you are entitled to.
Through my blog and detailed eBook 'Making Sense of Paid Parental Leave' I now have all of the information about what you should know and especially the things that no one tells you about.

Are you a small business owner and looking to reduce staff turnover and increase profits? Over the last 18 years I’ve become totally obsessed with leadership and the impact it has on business results, and perhaps more importantly, the happiness of its people at work and in life. The obsession began when I started my career as a 20 year old in a negative, unwelcoming and unsupportive environment. It was so awful, I’d go home and cry nearly every night. As I shared my story with friends and family I found, I wasn’t the only one who was unhappy in a working environment. After my manager left, and the whole team had resigned, I was given the opportunity to step up as the leader. As a 22 year old, I had very little experience in the business and no leadership skill. All I knew, was how not to do it, so I did the opposite of what my manager had done. With that and a brand new team, we got to work. In the following financial year we turned the business almost $150,000. That was over 18 years ago and as a result, have devoted my career to discovering what it takes to run a sustainable and profitable business with happy and empowered employees. I am now an author, coach and trainer on how to be an effective leader in small business, to reduce staff turnover and increase productivity and profit in small business! Now more than ever we need small business owners to step up and run successful and profitable businesses. Small business employs over 44% of the employed population in Australia, it is the heart beat of our economy. Your commitment to success will determine the future of Australia and our happiness depends on it. *Statistics from the Parliament of Australia

Attitude helps. Maria Bellissimo-Magrin wouldn’t have become the CEO of full-service creative marketing agency Belgrin without it. While you’ll never hear her claiming to be a creative genius, with such a fantastic team at Belgrin backing her, it doesn’t take long for her clients to start throwing this term around.
She started out in the industry 15 years ago and was quickly head hunted by Saatchi & Saatchi. In that time, she’s worked in Sydney, England and Bahrain and for the last eight years she’s been at the helm of Belgrin. She enjoys every aspect of her job, but what she loves is exceeding her client’s wildest expectations. And yes, it doesn’t happen every day, but with her it’s a hell of a lot more common than with anybody else out there.
Having graduated from The University of Sydney, Maria began her career in the recruitment industry at an international recruiting firm – a career that currently spans 21 years.
After earning her stripes as a recruiter, and as a seasoned manager, trainer and mentor, Maria became responsible for the induction and ongoing training of recruitment consultants and internal recruiters throughout Australia/NZ and UK, across a multitude of industries and specialisations.
After working for a number of International Recruiting firms, Maria stepped out on her own creating Thinking Forward. Here Maria and her team provide specialised training not only for Recruiters but also for Internal Recruitment teams and Sales and Leadership teams, concentrating on working with organisations in understanding how to re-engineer their recruitment practices, enabling efficient and successful recruitment across all levels of their organisation.
You know when someone has a burning desire, it doesn't matter what gets in their way, they make it happen. This sums up Maria. From 11, she knew she wanted to be a fashion designer but life conspired to put up many road blocks. Until 2016, when she convinced her husband to use the money from the sale of their home to start Sarsparilly.
Since then she's built a huge following for her colourful and gorgeous designs. It all started from four dresses and a love of fashion.

Marie went on a search for discovery―not only for herself but for those ahead and following―to find the skills necessary for retrieving the time and balance previously in place that she so desperately wanted again. Not only did she find time and energy to accomplish what she needed and wanted to do, she found success in both her personal and professional life.

Sharing food has always been central to Mark Calabro’s life. Growing up in a large Italian family, Mark had a childhood of witnessing the bonding magic of food – where sharing was caring – and it gave the marketing, sales, and client relationship head an appreciation for the role of good food in bringing people together.
