Let’s face it; a biography can only tell you so much. So we thought we’d take 5 minutes with Bec and ask her some interesting questions to help you get to know her a little better.
What’s the most interesting thing about you that we wouldn’t learn from your career alone?
I’m hugely adventurous and love stepping outside my comfort zone. When I was younger, it lead me to become an accomplished horse rider where I participated in show jumping, endurance riding and dressage. Over the years it’s lead me to mountain bike riding, road cycling, kayaking, canoeing, skiing, rock climbing, abseiling, mountaineering, white water rafting, paragliding and now more recently motorbike riding.
Who are the top three leaders you most admire?
- Oprah Winfrey is just gob smackingly amazing. I love everything about her – her authenticity, vulnerability, genuineness, compassion and gorgeous heart.
- Then there is Martin Luther King Junior. His passion for equality and social justice and his ability to listen to others and step into their territory with love was astounding.
- Another beautiful leader was John Lennon. I just love him! What he did through music, the way he stood up for what he believed in through the peace movement and his ability to unite people for a common purpose.
What do you believe is fundamental to great leadership?
I fully believe in knowing your BIG why and being passionately committed to it. Having a clear vision, being able to implement it and influence people others to stand with you is the foundation of great leadership.
What has been your most challenging adventure?
The most challenging adventure would have to be going through separation and divorce. Anyone who has experienced it knows how incredibly difficult it is. But at the end of the day, it was a decision I had to make for my own sanity and wellbeing.
What’s your favourite time of day?
It would have to be the end of the day when you can look back, reflect on your achievements and celebrate your milestones and success.
If you could be an Olympic athlete what sport would you compete in?
Decathlon. It’s a sport that challenges you on every level. Being a multi-talented athlete would be the best!
What advice would you give your younger self?
Embrace every day with love and joy. Don’t get too uptight, be patient. If it doesn’t feel right in your gut, follow your instincts. Your body will always give you the right pathway.
What is one adventure you’d love to go on but haven’t yet?
There are so many wild places I want to visit across the world, though I’d have to say travelling across Australia on foot and living minimalistically for 6-12 months.
What’s one thing you couldn’t live without?
Knowing who I am. Self-belief is one thing I couldn’t live without.
If you had to have one song on repeat what would it be?
Time Warp – love it gets you up and moving!
