Brett has worked in beverage manufacturing for over 18 years and has been a team leader for over 5 years. He is a volunteer speaker for beyondblue, sharing his personal stories of mental health to raise awareness, reduce the associated stigma, deliver messages of hope, and encourage people to seek help. Brett has been passionate about mental health for most of his adult life and became a leader in business to have a positive impact on people’s lives through the environment he creates in his teams.
Selection in the Fellowship supports Brett’s leadership journey to explore an evolved type of leadership, supported by new skills and knowledge he will gain. The Fellowship supports the work Brett already does in the community with beyondblue. The Fellowship also allows him to continue to build an environment of inclusion in his teams and workplace, and will give him the skills, knowledge and courage to lead in the community or within business.
