I am in a unique position to leverage communities and networks to make creative ideas happen. It’s not an easy job but it is an exciting one. There are a lot of unknowns as well as constant change. I do my best to arm myself with the best people and tools around because let me tell you – it’s not a one gal gig. Another thing I try and do as often as possible is get out of town to see what other cities do and how they harness their creativity. Cue REMIX Academy event on the Sunshine Coast.
I have three iconic and highly visible events happening in Newcastle and Lake Macquarie over the next four months. Sporting, Cultural and Social Cause. They will each attract audiences numbering 20,000+ who are exceptionally engaged and fit specific demographics.
