Our Game Changers Podcasts are brimming full of inspiration from incredible entrepreneurs to award winning business women including the Telstra Business Woman Of the Year Natasha Chadwick, the CEO of New Direction Care, which is revolutionising aged care communities. Here are some of our favourite Game Changer from each of the four last seasons for you to listen to.

Uplifting Australia CEO Garry Thomson

Garry Thomson is an international public speaker and author who has implemented Uplifting Australia as a means of tackling poor mental health in Australia’s youth. The goal is not to cure it, but to prevent it.

New Direction Care CEO Natasha Chadwick

Natasha Chadwick, winner of the 2019 Telstra Queensland Business Woman of the Year, followed by the top prize – the 2019 Telstra Australian Business Woman of The Year, worked 18 years as the National Executive Officer for the National Association of Nursing Homes. Throughout her time in that sector, she noticed that a few key elements were missing. She was determined to add those missing parts and completely revolutionise the aged care system with New Direction.

NewDirection Care Bellmere is the world’s first MICROTOWN™ inclusive community that provides freedom of movement, independence, and choice for the elderly and those living with a diagnosis of dementia. NewDirection Care is a multi award-winning residential community based in Bellmere, Brisbane, for the elderly and for those living with younger onset dementia and complex care needs. It is a place where residents can enjoy fulfilling and happy lives beyond diagnosis—socialising, staying active, pursuing hobbies and continuing to play a role in the community. NewDirection Care developed a multi-skilled role that you will find nowhere else in the aged care industry called House Companion™ Support Workers.

Sipora CEO Jonathan Despinidic

Jonathan Despindic was told that he’d have a very short life-expectancy the young age of 13 years old when he was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis. Many would have lost all hope and motivation, but Jonathan Despindic stared adversity in the eyes and challenged it. Today he is the co-founder of Sipora, the app that helps you save your money, and creator of the podcast ‘You Can’t Catch This’ where he speaks of the challenges that people with Cystic Fibrosis face.

Qnary CEO Andrew Davie

Andrew Davie has 20 years of experience advertising, brand management and strategy and with that has created his own company, Qnary, with the aim of businesses and professionals increase their digital presence and grow their reputation within their respective industries. What’s missing is trust, and when companies drive thought leadership and expertise through their executives and employees, it disperses through the whole company. The result? Better reputation, more trust and better results.
