Graduate Certificate in Management of Not-For-Profit Organisations (current)
Managing Director, Studio ARTES

"I decided to study at ACU after watching one of the lecturers present at a conference. I was really impressed and wanted to learn more.

ACU Executive Education has given me the opportunity to network and learn alongside other professionals in the not-for-profit sector, which has underscored the value of collaboration and learning from others.

What I’ve learnt has supported my career path, and has shown me what Studio ARTES needs as an organisation. I could see there was need for a change in the structure of the organisation in order to support its various functions and compliance requirements, so we have now made some positive changes.

I am very lucky to work in a place so alive with creative energy and with such a strong sense of community. The best part of my job is being part of that community, and seeing the outcomes of the programs we run in the lives of the people we support. I consider myself extremely fortunate to have an extraordinary job that combines my interests in creativity and the arts with my strengths in working with people and organisational operations."
