Pymble Ladies’ College Principal Vicki Lynn Waters has been named 2017 NSW Business Leader of the Year at the NSW Business Chamber’s State Business Awards.
The award recognises individuals who demonstrate outstanding entrepreneurial spirit, strategic business direction and innovative ideas, while providing inspiration to a new generation of upcoming business leaders.
Mrs Waters is the leader of the largest girls’ school in Australia. Pymble Ladies’ College is a non-selective, independent school for girls from K-12.
Over the past 10 years Mrs Waters has lead the transformation of the College into a forward-thinking centre of inspiration and education.
“As the world continues to change, our capacity as a College to look to the future and to provide experiences that enable our girls to become future-ready requires a different mindset to ‘this is the way it has always been done’,” she said.
“Education needs to be agile, forward-thinking and based on strategy – it requires the effective and efficient management of resources and facilities to support the learning of the next generation of students as well as the current students.”
