I’ve followed Valerie Khoo’s business career for around 20 years and she never ceases to surprise and amaze. I can’t think of many accountants who end up as curator of a major arts festival. So how and why does she keep reinventing?

Valerie is the ideal first guest for my new Rekindle Podcast. I’d always wanted to quiz her on her approach to business as it seemed she was always starting something new. Frankly I struggled to keep up.

You need to get a hobby!

But it was when I heard she’d moved from her inner city pad to Sydney’s Northern Beaches and was spending her days covered in paint, that I thought she’d lost the plot. As you’ll hear, I got that completely wrong.

Not only had Valerie not lost the plot, she’s clearly well on the way to creating a totally new and exciting storyline. Follow her hugely impressive journey here.
