Drag Yourself Away from Binge Watching Bodyguard

Richard Madden

If you can drag yourself away from binge watching delicious Richard Madden in Bodyguard,  try listening to the  gorgeous and inspiring Mariana Mazzucato as she outlines her framework for reinventing “value”. Mariana Mazzucato

Millennials need Meaning

Millennials are passionate about finding “value” in their lives and work.

Baby boomers not living in Bhutan high jacked “value” and started to measure it in terms of money. Mariana Mazzucato argues from a similar view to Marilyn Waring who in the 80s was asking us to consider the value of a tree. She really gets you thinking about this crazy neo liberalism which is directing our futures.

You can hear Mariana Mazzucatos ideas on reframing value on Saturday Extra here.

She has a new book out called  The Value of Everything: making and taking in the global economy (2018)

A fantastic careers teacher may have changed my life. I've spent my career going from job to job. After washing cars and working in bars I went into marketing. I then became an English teacher. Teaching has been the foundation for a lot of my career. I went into TAFE where I designed participation programs, then into HR, then developed training programs for industry.  I taught e-commerce and developed systems to make it easier for organisations to work together. I kept going for scholarships and going back to uni along the way. At one time I became a world expert on collaboration frameworks, and discovered it was tricky having a conversation about THAT with anyone I knew!! I now focus on delivering information that helps careers teachers to be fantastic. You can tap into my expertise by subscribing to my newsletter. Contact me at or M: 0434056412
