ABOUT LYNDAL ….
Representing a huge 25% of the population, baby boomers have been the drivers of Australian economic policy for decades. As a high profile woman working in one of the nation’s most critical transport sectors, Baby Boomer and mother of two – Lyndal Denny is proud to be part of a generation that has witnessed and participated in some of the greatest social changes in the country’s history. Like all “Boomers” Lyndal values individual choice and freedom and believes the time has come for every-day Aussies to take hold of the political reins and begin to steer this great country of ours back on track
Endorsed by the Mature Australia Party (MAP) as Senate Candidate for South Australia, Lyndal was delighted to find her political ideologies align directly not only to those of the Mature Australia Party but also to those of an overwhelming majority of Aussies who believe they are entitled to more effective, equitable representation by those we elect – particularly in terms of having more say in decision-making within the parliamentary process.
Flagged as Australia’s most unlikely heavy vehicle driver – human resource professional, road safety advocate, Co-founder and Executive Director Pilbara Heavy Haulage Girls , Lyndal continues to master the skills of MC driver as she moves into her 4th year of professional driving. The recipient of a Rotary International Paul Harris Fellow award for her work in road safety, Lyndal has – over recent years – divided her time between Pilbara Heavy Haulage Girls’ business development and driving heavy vehicles.
Born and educated in NSW, Lyndal has also worked in the media (print, radio and television) the hospitality sector as Hotelier and the Employment Services sector as a Consultant and Regional Manager. With tertiary qualifications in Business Management, Lyndal also completed Management Synergy studies and a Certificate IV in Employment Services – underpinning a 10 year career working with the unemployed in NSW.
Lyndal has extensive non-profit experience working with Wesley Mission – one of the largest non-profit organisations in Australia and also as Chair of the Ballina and District Community Services Association leading a Board providing governance to this community organisation administering 29 State and Federally funded programs – providing services for both the disadvantaged and wider community.
Lyndal has also freely given her time in the community sector taking up the following roles:
President Ballina-on-Richmond Rotary Club
Chair Combined Services Club – Ballina (Rotary, Lions, Quota, Scope)
Chair Ballina and District Community Services Assoc (BDCSA)
Chair Ballina Shire Council Bypass Taskforce
Member State Emergency Services
In 2013 she farewelled the NSW north coast and her position as Employment Services Regional Manager with Wesley Mission and headed to WA’s remote outback to commence a new career as a heavy vehicle driver. A regular keynote speaker on the topics of road safety and gender diversity, Lyndal continues this vital work through non-profit organisation – Pilbara Heavy Haulage Girls.
