Having previously worked with Qantas and Jetstar in both inventory and yield management as well as a start up software business (Hooroo), Amanda knew there was an opportunity to apply a more commercial process to the way waitlists and annual re-enrolments are managed in the childcare sector. An Arts Commerce degree and extensive corporate background have given Amanda the skills to identify if and how business processes can be improved, and to establish more efficient ways of getting a job done.
Amanda’s children, two little girls and cheeky young son, have attended community and private childcare centres. Through volunteer work with multiple kindergarten committees, Amanda became keenly aware of the exceptional work of staff. However, at the same time, she also recognised how hamstrung they were by outdated enrolment systems.
