Jenny Tse - Performance Coach

While working with some of the largest organisations in the world, including PricewaterhouseCoopers, Jenny was diagnosed with a rare medical condition that caused her to re-evaluate her career path and her life. An avid learner, Jenny embarked on an educational journey that gave her the opportunity to work with some of the best business minds in Australia, most being self made millionaires before the age of 30. It was on this journey that she noticed the potentially huge impact those in well paid professional careers could have on the community and our environment. The challenge is creating the conditions that will inspire more professionals to take action and make a difference. Jenny created her sales coaching business, Licence to BillTM, to create freedom and choice for professionals by building successful businesses and in the process inspire them to choose to live responsibly. Jenny has been invited to speak on the topic of sales and communication by the Institute of Chartered Accountants and the Employee Mobility Institute and has also appeared in the Australian Financial Review.
