One of two recipients of the Work-Life Leadership Award 2010, Joanna champions the need to take Work-Life seriously and with integrity – not only as good business practice, but as a foundational life principle. Jo started out her career with a desire to change lives. She undertook counselling, casework and therapy in the areas of children with special needs, domestic violence, families-in-crisis and psychiatric rehabilitation. Thereafter, she took a year off to join an international non-profit humanitarian organisation before progressing to youth work and eventually, full-time ministry devoted to helping marriages and families. Jo and her husband have between them over 25 years of experience working with youth and families, and are both licensed marriage solemnisers. The husband-and-wife team regularly train and speak together, especially in challenging young adults and couples to maximise life and relationships. After enjoying six years of marriage, they were blessed with the arrival of a son in 2006. Now armed with a preschooler, they enjoy jamming as a family “band”.

About Conference
Changes are taking place rapidly. So how can parents nurture their children so that they can take advantage of the new opportunities in an increasingly globalised world? It has been said that the key to great parenting and strong family ties between parents and children often lie in the quality of the parent-child communication. Every child has the innate ability to be nurtured as a leader if clear parental belief and involvement is given right at the start of their development. Halogen Foundation believes in creating opportunities for young people to learn about leadership and more importantly, engage the single most influential people in a child’s life in this nurturing process — their parents.

I believe every child is a potential leader. They may not become the next Lee Iacocca, Norman Schwartzkopf, or Mother Teresa — but I believe inside every kid lies great potential to influence other people.
