I'm Larissa Brown

Why should your teen work with me on career planning:

  • I get¬†how hard it is to navigate your early career.¬†I got terrible career counselling in high school.¬†I started three¬†different degrees in my early twenties trying to work out what I wanted to do ‚Äď engineering, then law and then science.¬†None of them felt quite right. Eventually, I found my way to a career that I loved, but I wasted a lot of time and money in the process and I don't want your teen to make the same mistake.

  • I have held many senior and fulfilling jobs: I founded and served as CEO of an award-winning NGO. I then followed my passions ‚Äď and applied my skills ‚Äď in politics, commencing as a State Director of a significant Australian political party, before moving to the national arena as the federal party‚Äôs parliamentary director and then national policy director working out of¬†Australian Parliament House.¬†¬†
  • I have personally¬†interviewed 200 of the world's greatest social¬†impact¬†leaders about their careers:¬†My research has taken me to 20 countries and five continents.¬†This includes former Prime Ministers, Nobel Prize Winners, top entrepreneurs and young people making a difference in cities across the globe.¬† ¬†
  • I have researched¬†at the world's¬†best universities:¬†I hold¬†three master‚Äôs¬†degrees at the world's top universities - Cambridge University (UK), the London School of Economics, and The University of Melbourne.¬†I have also worked as a lecturer and research scientist at Australia's top universities.
  • I have won major awards for my mentoring work:¬†I have been recognized as a Global Shaper by the Davos World Economic Forum and listed as one of Melbourne's 100 Most Influential People by The Age newspaper. Additionally, I have been honoured¬†as the Australian Young Environmentalist of the Year and the Victorian Young Australian of the Year.¬†
  • I care deeply about career planning:¬†I am driven by the question; how can people use their uniqueness to have¬†an impact through their work?¬†I love helping¬†teenagers identify fulfilling, meaningful and impactful careers they can grow into.
