Fleur’s professional background includes senior political journalist and parliamentary sketch writer with The Australian Financial Review, a regular panellist on ABC’s Insiders, and Vice-President of the Federal Parliamentary Press Gallery.
One of Fleur’s notable achievements with 89 Degrees East was assisting the delivery of the Academy for Enterprising Girls through the Australian Government's Future Female Entrepreneurs Program.
Away from work, Fleur’s favourite pastime is embarrassing her children in public, which, she says, is incredibly easy and very rewarding. She also wrote ‘On Sleep’, a book about slumber (or lack of it) and its impact on politics.
Her favourite social movement was the #RethinkRoleModels campaign by the Australian Diamonds netball team because it highlighted the grit and determination of our female sport stars, and instigated a move away from the sexualisation of female athletes by major sponsors.
