An amazing opportunity and great people.

I am finally thinking about positive things.

Loved discussing ideas and the possibility of getting our projects into motion.

Thanks to Kent Street Senior High students for your amazing feedback.

Our  4 week Redefining Futures program was an experiment in empowering students to become changemakers who make the world a better place. AND IT WORKED!

The expert 16-year-old students in Western Australia in 2016 identified these projects to address issues impacting on them:

  • Creating an app that would help students to have their views heard.
  • Developing a fitness regime for the school.
  • Promoting mental health and well-being in the school.
  • Building a social media strategy supporting students to cope with change.

Non-teachers in the Redefining Futures Team were blown away by the maturity, knowledge and wisdom of 16-year-olds at Kent St SHS.

I hope these Student Changemakers lead the way for a movement of Western Australian students empowered to create the world as a better place.

I went to uni because my girlfriend was going to uni. I had no idea. I struggled through my degree. I struggled to avoid teaching. I struggled to find my way in the world beyond school. After washing cars and working in bars I went into marketing and then became an English teacher. It didn't stop there. I went into TAFE, then into HR, then into designing training programs for industry before going into system design and IT. At one stage I became a world expert on collaboration frameworks!! Now I am an expert in career paths from school in Western Australia. You can tap into my expertise by subscribing to my newsletter for West Australian high schools or by working with me online as we design your perfect next step.
