"The Head and Heart workshop was fantastic. It was inspiring and informative and it has given me immense food for thought. I was every motivated by Rachael’s story and her passion for the sector. I would have no hesitation in recommending this to others."
"People for Purpose helped me make the successful transition from the corporate world to the for- purpose sector after 25 years at Qantas. The advice I was given was valuable and simple and I am loving my new executive role with the Royal Institute for the Deaf and Blind. Thank you People for Purpose."
