Veronica Strachan is an author, speaker, coach and change expert. She spent three decades in health and human services leadership, IT, Education, Environment and Primary Industries, working across three states and directing national projects in Australia. Then, no longer content running other people’s companies, she started her own business, True Dialogue, so that she could have more conversations with purpose and run things the way she wanted to.

After being a public school teacher for 15 years, she started a business without even knowing what an entrepreneur was. She had followed the rules set forth by her family of getting an education and getting a reliable government job so you could have a good pension.
