Induwa Cummings

Advisor

The words “Re-defining” & “questioning” feature regularly in my language. As does “balance, flow and allowing”.

This is my way in life and business, there is no separation.

Before I was a very goal driven, A-type personality that made things happen, that wrote goals every year without fail, and I achieved them.

I operate business as a beautifully balanced ecosystem, describing myself as a heart centred leader. The work I do brings me great joy and the people I work with are more family than “clients and stakeholders”.

I am a global citizen, passionate about our planet and people.

I am also a proud descendant of land owners in Kokoda, Papua New Guinea. 🇵🇬

The stuff that makes my heart soar is:

➡️ Contributing to the future of PNG through education opportunities in Australia – and looking to disrupt traditional models of delivery and curriculum to create a relevant, affordable and empowering system.

➡️working with leaders who have pure intentions for progress. Those with good hearts , smart minds and committed to combining our traditions and technology to serve our country , our people and our earth well.

➡️ business’ that look beyond themselves to see what positive and sustainable contributions they can make to the community and beyond. Shared economy. Humanity in Business. Social Enterprise. 🌎

➡️ questioning habits and expectations that don’t serve us or the world we live in today and its possibilities. Like the belief that time = money, how success is defined, and that money is only one form of value exchange. Leveraging technology for opportunities.

Let’s make people and planet our priority and the rewards will be there for all.

I’m also the Ambassador for the League Of Extraordinary Women for the Gold Coast. I create events to support women on the entrepreneurial journey that want real connections. I travel to PNG regularly.
