Alex now enjoys educating individuals and teams in sport and business – through keynote speaking and leadership mentoring – on how to achieve sustained high performance in challenging environments. Alex is also a health professional in the area of clinical genetics and the first female elected member of the Board of Cricket NSW.
Alex was special guest speaker at the Enindico Roses and Thorn Virtual Soiree on Wednesday 14 October, which attracted over 30 members of the Roses and Thorn community. Alex spoke about how her understanding of what it takes to be high performing – individually and as a team – has been shaped by her international cricket career, her experiences as a leader on the field and in the Boardroom and her advocacy for social justice. Alex described the ingredients she believes are essential for mastery of self and mastery within a team and shared lessons she has accumulated through challenging times around resilience and leadership.
