Luceille is a visionary leader. Her "over the horizon" perspective has enabled Workright to design and establish training programs, qualifications and a range of business consultancy services that have been both unique and timely in meeting the rapidly changing needs of business. GEM College of International Business (Global) and its licensed campus operations are an extension of that original global vision.

Luceille has more than 30 years experience in Education and Industry, working in both private and public sectors of secondary and tertiary educational organisations.

Luceille has been honoured as a finalist in the Telstra Business Woman of the Year twice. In 2000 she was Finalist in the South Australian Awards, and in 2007 she was again a finalist in the Telstra Business Women’s Award (SA) and received the Telstra Business Women’s SA Govt Business Innovation Award.

Luceille’s special interest is breaking down the digital divide, and the transference of technology to assist Vocational Training Systems to third world nations.

Luceille is also the Chair of the Quality Control Unit of Workright Australia. In 2000 Luceille was seconded to Digislide Management, an early stage technology company which had been under the incubation of the Workright Centre for Entrepreneurship. She managed the Research and Development Team, and discovered her creativity went beyond the domain of education, as she was the inventor and co-inventor on a number of Digislide’s patents.

Under Luceille’s management, in 2006, Digislide won the Guy Manson “Hottest Technology Award” in Silicon Valley; was designated a “Top 100 Global Innovator” by the Guidewire Group in March, 2007, and nominated for a World Technology Award. In 2007, Digislide was declared a finalist at the World Technology Forum Awards, and since that time has won many national and international awards. In 2009, Luceille steered the company through the GFC, and listed on the Australian Securities Exchange.

In 2012, Digislide shareholders approved returning the company to private ownership. Luceille remains Chairman of the Digislide Group, and President of Digislide Americas.
