Maria Simonelli

Career Redesign Program Creator and Facilitator

I'm a creative mind fuelled by a singular vision – to help individuals and communities fulfil their deepest potentials, and passions, in the most sustainable way.

In what I affectionately describes as my 'slash' career, I am an educator / sustainability advocate / community facilitator and community builder / artist / author and start-up entrepreneur that has spent more than 25 years seamlessly transitioning between seemingly contradictory worlds.

I've been described as a modern-day Renaissance woman. I began my professional life in the environmental sciences. This led to an ongoing interest in reversing the “the declining health of the environment” and the impact of climate change.

I've held a string of high-level management, executive and consultancy roles in sustainability across the government, not-for-profit and corporate sectors.

Drawing on this success morphing my professional life into different forms, I created a fresh new venture and approach to redesigning your career – Sweet Spot Careers.

The boutique consultancy has developed a powerful 'Career Redesign Program' for midlife and mid career professionals. It helps them discover the magic formula for professional happiness and take practical steps towards a meaningful career during their often challenging mid life and mid career.

I have also published 'Sweet Spot Careers: A practical and creative guide to a successful midlife career transition', in April 2014.
