1. Tell us a little about yourself?

Januta is an author, leader, and Wellbeing Expert with over 25 years of experience as a senior human resources professional focusing on recruitment consulting and health and wellbeing. She’s the founder of Executive Wellbeing Pty Ltd and the creator of “Empower your Organisation” Masterclass Series of Workshops, Mindfulness Meditation, “The Knowing Flow”, Vinyasa Yoga series, and the renowned Transformational Breathing activation program. She regularly features in the media and is a keynote speaker for events and writer for health and lifestyle publications. Her extensive eastern and western science-based training and her senior-level human resources consulting experience form the foundation of the Master Class Series – a series of personal development workshops including local and international retreats.

2. Who are the women who have inspired you the most in your life?

My mother, Patricia Brownbill, still inspires me at 89 as she reflects a capable, independent, smart woman. She was a Trailblazer female in business during her career in a male-dominated era. There are so many amazing women on this planet; Coco Chanel, Virginia Woolfe, Hedy Lamarr, Oprah Winfrey, Indira Gandhi, Yoko Ono, Ita Buttrose, Cate Blanchett!

3. Why do you think it’s important to increase the number of women in business, particularly in leadership roles?

It’s about balance. Women are intelligent, intuitive human beings and have proven to and currently lead dynamically and successfully. It’s a no-brainer that there should be more women in leadership, and the decisions around this need to happen on a grander scale. It should happen sooner rather than later.

4. How would you describe your current thinking about diversity and inclusion?

I have an open mind and totally support diversity and inclusion. We are all unique individuals, and there is a place for us all to be accepted and add value to our society.

5. Would you like to tell us a bit more about your thoughts/ comments?

Being a female leader, I know it’s essential to stay focused on the many positive changes in society. I’m grateful to have questioned many things throughout my life, and at 61, being fit, agile and walking my talk of good health is our natural state. My passion is to continue to speak up in changing the narrative around many issues, including redefining aging, which allows women and men to better understand how to age well, rather than the current rapid aging model, which often starts when people are young. There are many ages and stages we go through, and to be educated around mental health, including developing positive IQ and EQ, physical health, and healthy habits, is essential. Once Emotional Intelligence is embraced, individuals start to function and communicate in a coherent, collaborative empowering way. This approach improves relationships, communication, and successful outcomes of the business and personal goals. As a society, functioning with greater coherence adds to humanity and improves how the world functions, including issues around diversity and inclusion.
