I acknowledge the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung and Boon Wurrung people of the Kulin Nation who are the traditional owners of the land on which I live and work and the Yarra Birrarung river in which I swim. Wilip-gin Birrarung murron. (Keep the Birrarung alive!)
As a pioneer of purpose, I’ve been teaching personal and organisational purpose for over ten years. My best-selling book, The Purpose Project is a trusted guide to thousands of leaders. My recent training in nature-based leadership has led me to understand the power of Mother Nature as our greatest teacher. In nature, using the tool of storytelling, we will unearth new possibilities and a deep sense of purpose and meaning.
Writing is the most powerful way to face grief and find hope. By freeing the writer within, we free ourselves from the grip grief holds on us. When life becomes dark, writing is the way through. Brave Women Write is a manifesto for women who yearn to write for personal and planetary healing and change
As a river swimmer and activist for a more loveable and swimmable river, I’m on a mission to change the negative perception many Victorians have of the Yarra Birrarung. These stories will help change the narrative and invite us all to connect with the river, tend to her and become activists and action-takers for a more healthy, loved, swimmable Yarra Birrarung for all.
