Christine Foxwell had been in hr, recruitment, consulting, training, and executive leadership and what she knew for sure was we were missing an opportunity to engage and equip people and in return, increase business performance.
In her career, she has seen people step into growth, achieve the unexpected and succeed together. I am, therefore, a firm believer that people can unlock their purpose, joy, development and Performance. Foxwell also believes organisations can achieve success and high performing cultures by engaging in clarity, inclusivity, honesty, vision and measurement. In essence, she has found it’s a delicate balance between people and Performance.
What has inspired the Ignite Purpose team and her to keep learning, growing and stepping into that uncomfortable place of unlocking change? It is the difference she has seen in Leadership teams, cultures and most importantly, the people (humans) we work with.
They start with people and align people to performance outcomes and measures.
They help people ignite their purpose, build their skills, lead who they are and shift their mindsets. We do this through coaching programs from executives through to leaders and teams.
They align leaders (Executive alignment programs) to each other, people to their leaders, and finally, we empower the organisation to build a culture of high performance.
They facilitate strategy, alignment, culture leadership, sales and performance workshops. We coach leaders, teams and organisations to partner, connect deeply and unlock potential and Performance.
The tools they use to support our clients are, bespoke designed programs based on their individual needs—behaviour profiles (DISC & Motivators). They also use TILT365 to help personal insights on growth that aligns to coaching programs. They do impact surveys, high-performance measurement and 360 assessments. Finally, they are the distributors of Silega Business Simulations in ANZ and use interactive simulations and activities to create reflective learning environment
The team is based in Sydney, Australia; they work virtually and face to face and have delivered workshops and coaching sessions to clients all over the world.

Ant Stevens and Louis Strauss, from 6clicks, are leading this integration effort and are excited to announce that Hailey is now equipped with ChatGPT’s advanced capabilities.
This integration has resulted in a powerful and innovative AI system that can perform amazing tasks. The combination of Hailey’s advanced algorithms and ChatGPT’s natural language processing abilities allow Hailey to understand and respond to users in a way that is intuitive and conversational.
Tackling the existing gender gap in the biotech sector
Skilling women researchers and nurturing women CEOs
Today’s society is very advanced – in so many ways.
From the cars people drive, to the way they communicate with one another, to the places people can travel to – and how they can get there.
But unfortunately, gender disparity is still evident for female CEOs, particularly in the Biotech sector.
Most people know that gender inequality still exists in some form, but often no action is taken to change it. With women being underrepresented, it might be having a negative impact on the overall outcomes.
“In order to run a company, one has to be worth more than just their research capabilities, there’s lots of more skills that are necessary,” Dr. Zeenia Kaul from Reheva Biosciences reveals. “During my training as a researcher, I was not necessarily offered an opportunity to learn those skills.
“I had to learn them on job.
“Some of the skills necessary to run a successful biotech startup or business are very different.
“As a scientist, I should be able to read a balance sheet and understand what it means for my business.
“I was very fortunate to have business education that allowed me to get the skillset and have a co-founder who had started companies and expanded them.”
Cure Brain Cancer Foundation CEO Lance Kawaguchi reveals a similar tale of not many females being – or becoming CEOs – in the sector.
“When I joined the not-for-profit sector two years ago, I didn’t really see any women CEOs,” Kawaguchi adds. “That’s why I wanted to make sure that all the funds that we raised, are going to be dispersed based off merit, not on gender.”
So, how can change be facilitated, not only in the sector but across the board?
“I want to create an ecosystem, so that the biotechs are provided with the commercial experience of how to do intellectual property (IP) law; how to read a balance sheet when you’re doing a debt deal,” Kawaguchi asserts.
“I find many of the researchers, brilliant as they are, don’t have the finance or the business acumen.
“And that’s one thing I’m trying to provide – not only the funding, but also the support to fill in the gaps, to help them progress through each phase,” he says.
Another major obstacle that Kawaguchi points out is the lack of funding given to some companies at Phase zero, especially those startups that don’t have a track record of successful venture capital raises.
“How do you get a track record if you’re not given an opportunity?” he posits. “The more we can support that Phase zero phase or Phase one research, the more shots on goal.
“And this is how we get more from the bench to the bedside – by supporting the front end of the pipeline.”
Frequent Flyer Points: The Key to Confirmed Business Class Flights?
Increase of frequent flyer programs offered by airlines creates achievable and comfortable travel
It is becoming more apparent that the days of hoping for an upgrade when flying are gone.
With the increasing popularity of frequent flyer programs, more and more people are taking advantage of their accumulated points to secure confirmed business class flights.
The beauty of this trend is that it eliminates the risk of having to settle for a less comfortable economy class seat.
Flyers have found that they can redeem their points for business class tickets on a number of airlines, including some of the world’s most well-known carriers.
This allows them to enjoy the many benefits of a premium cabin, such as extra legroom, luxurious seating, and gourmet meals.
It also means that they can arrive at their destination refreshed and ready for business or leisure.
Steve Hui, also known as The Points Whisperer, is assisting his clients with his flight concierge service to help them turn their points into confirmed business class flights, by-passing the risk of hoping for an upgrade.
