In 2008, Audrey stood down as General Manager of APA and her sons, Graeme and David took over leading the business. Building on Audrey’s core foundations, they took the business to the next level. Their vision saw APA evolve; building an experienced team who has enhanced the company’s scale, service portfolio, client list and technology offerings.
With an unswerving passion and commitment to this work, Audrey shifted into her new capacity as chairperson, and remained deeply involved in executive program delivery right up until her death in late 2014. She maintained a strong association and friendship with long standing clients and was a mentor to staff who drew on her unparalleled experience. Audrey was also involved in several community organisations; including Chief Executive Women (CEW) of Australia, the Art Gallery of NSW Foundation and was an Ambassador for the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA).
Audrey’s influence has been both seminal and enduring in the field of career transition in Australia. Today, this continues through our alliance with Directioneering which she was instrumental in forging.
Few Australians – have had as significant an impact on the way businesses and individuals deal with major career transitions as Audrey has.
