In this episode I am speaking with Fiona Nash.
What I loved most about this conversation, is how real Fiona is and how easily this conversation flowed.
We crammed so much into this conversation – the power of relationships and collaboration, how every day is an opportunity to learn…even the bad days, the dangers of comparison, the need to be humble and different ways of looking at failure.
Fiona is Charles Sturt University’s Strategic Adviser – Regional Engagement and Government Relations.
Having grown up in Sydney, Fiona has spent most of her life living and working in regional Australia.
For many years she was involved in a farming enterprise in the NSW Central West, which her sons Will and Henry are now running.
She spent twelve years in the Federal Parliament as a Senator for NSW and also held ministerial positions including Rural Health, and in Cabinet the positions of Regional Development, Regional Communications and Local Government and Territories.
Fiona also held the position of Deputy Leader of the Nationals.
