With a background spanning multimedia, communications and technical finance, Belinda is a natural fit for her role as Head of Policy and Industry Capability, where she crafts the frameworks upon which Financial Education Professionals builds its products and curriculum.
A passionate storyteller, Belinda uses her communication skills to ensure learners understand the context, not just the content, of their training.
Belinda says she was always interested in finance, despite initially undertaking study in the creative arts (she holds a Masters of Arts in Art History and Theory and a Graduate Certificate in Interactive Multimedia). In her first role after study, Belinda worked as a media monitor for iSentia, where she became interested in the compliance and technical aspects of financial services. She subsequently explored these areas in more detail through communication roles at the Australian Institute of Company Directors and Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand.
Belinda joined Financial Education Professionals in 2017, having previously held roles in content and program creation at Finsia Education and AFMA.
She derives immense job satisfaction from combining her affinity for numbers and processes with her creative side, and knowing she is contributing to helping others in the financial services industry feel more confident in their own roles.
