Bourby Webster's career spanned life as a professional musician (and founding member of multi-platinum group Bond), an elite athlete on the cusp of two Olympics, and a corporate exec before she decided to put it all on the line and start an orchestra intent on disrupting perceptions of classical music. Six years on, the WAAPA lecturer and Telstra Business Woman of the Year Finalist manages 13 administrators, over 150 musicians, and the orchestra has played to 200,000+- most of whom have never heard an orchestra before. This is a high-energy chat on bringing a vision to life, the interrelationship between the arts and business, and challenging pre-conceptions.
