Vanessa is a businesswoman, philanthropist and mum. From an early age Vanessa had a great love for business. Then, a horrific accident in her childhood confined her to a wheelchair and her dreams of being a globetrotting business woman were put on hold. Rebuilding her strength she went on to develop her love of business, a love she has taken across the world from brand marketing for Nike in Europe, account managing shareholder events for FTSE 100 companies in London to creating her own marketing agency in Australia.
