About our keynote speaker:
Natalie has had an extraordinary unique career with many unseen twists and turns, that have all come from taking risks and looking out for opportunities. Previously an owner of a Sea Kayak Adventure Business on the Sunshine Coast, she had an Australian Customs Border Force boat pull up at the back of her waterfront business. A natural curiosity for adventure saw her apply for a new government initiative that presented an opportunity within patrolling in the Southern Ocean. Though having no previous law enforcement background, and through numerous psychometric behavioural profiling, Natalie proved to be the ‘wild card’ as she had been profiled and identified as a ‘risk taker’. As the only female in amongst 25 others, she commenced her new role as an Armed Boarding Party member employed to patrol the Southern Ocean for prolonged deployments. This risky, dangerous and male dominated law enforcement role also saw her take up patrolling the top end of Australia’s coastline in the fight against illegal drug importations, illegal immigration and other crime. This was to be the first of the next 12 years that she would spend in many various unique Government roles both in Australia and the Middle East. A move with her family to the United Arab Emirates, saw the next 8 years working for both the Australian and British Embassies, which involved working with many Government departments such as Intelligence Agencies, Australian Prime Minister’s Office, Governor General, Foreign and Trade Ministers, various British and UAE heads of Governments as well as working as close personal protection for H.M The Queen.
