Violet Roumeliotis is the 2017 Telstra Business Women of the Year and as you will see over the course of this chat she is an unbelievably deserving recipient of that title. Violet is the CEO of a non-for-profit organisation called SSI which she has turned into a company and a social business. SSI helps settle newly arrived refugees into Australia. Violet has built it into an extraordinary business, 3 years ago they only had 70 staff they now have nearly 600 staff and their revenue in the last 4 years has grown from $9million to $110million. This is a business that is doing all sorts of good for the fabric of our community and Violet's story and her approach to Leadership is truly an inspiring one.
