ABOUT NINA CHRISTESEN
Hi, I’m Nina Christesen and I’ve established Pivot to Purpose to help professionals reinvent themselves.
Professionally and personally, I know how reinvention can open doors to learning and creativity, create more options to make a difference, and give a renewed sense of purpose.
For over 20 years, I was a consultant and educator on leadership and managing change. My experience covered a variety of settings, working with CEO’s, startup entrepreneurs, scientists, olympic athletes and social activists.
More importantly, after a successful corporate career, I reinvented myself as a quantitative fund manager in the financial markets, and then as a social issues documentary filmmaker. (You can see some of my film work here.)
As John Lennon famously said; “life is what happens when you are busy making other plans”. Reinvention is happening too. The challenge is to take charge of it…but it’s not easy.
I know what works, and what doesn’t.
But I’m skeptical that lessons from my experience are easily transferable. So, when people ask me for advice, I look for evidence-based research that supports it. This is now the basis of a soon to be published book.
Pivot to Purpose is an extension of this writing. It offers a blend of research – (behavioral economics, psychology, entrepreneurship, change management) – inspirational stories and personal experience.
I hope you find it helpful.
I am based in Melbourne, Australia. I work from home or beside the campfire when I go bush walking and kayaking.
You can find what I like to talk about or book me, on the Speaking page.
