A Word from your Host


The FLAME Network is a long-awaited national initiative of CSA designed to champion Female Leaders And Managers in Education. Together, we aim to celebrate women in leadership and to inspire, encourage and support aspiring and emerging leaders in Christian education. The Flame network will enable strong connections between experienced and inexperienced leaders and help identify and encourage structures that support women in leadership.

Flame is more than networking and building relationships, it’s about developing capacity of female leaders and aspiring female leaders to lead with confidence and humility to be all that God has created them to be.

~ Jill Healey, National Flame Network Facilitator, Christian Schools Australia


Melissa is an exceptional leader who engages with purpose and passion. I have valued the insights and wisdom that Melissa has brought to each of the interactions I have had with her. She is a dynamic and engaging presenter who leaves her audience questioning deeply, yet feeling motivated to engage more effectively in the space God has placed them.”

– Daniel Pampuch, CEO, Christian Schools Australia
