Kylie Paatsch

Responsible for nurturing and enhancing the careers of countless Flighties worldwide.

One of Kylie's favourite quotes is “amazing things happen when women help women” and we are fortunate enough to have this amazing woman do just this in her role as Leader of Training and Development.

Kylie’s career in FCTG spans more than two decades. Working her way through the ranks, from consultant through to the company’s most experienced Leadership Trainer, Kylie is responsible for nurturing and enhancing the careers of countless Flighties worldwide. Kylie has held various senior leadership positions with state and national responsibilities but it is her focus on inspiring people that has really appeared as one of her main strengths.

Amazing things happen when women help women

Kylie has been influential in cultivating generation after generation of leaders, not only the Australia, but within all our global businesses.

Kylie is married and has two wonderful, healthy outgoing boys whose love for life and their community are a testament to Kylie’s ethos and energy.

One of Kylie’s current focuses is on FCTG gender diversity programme so we had to ask Kylie a few questions:

Which female leaders in the travel industry inspire you?

Although this may sound a little bias, FCTG COO, Melanie Waters-Ryan is definitely a stand out for me. Not only because she recently took out first place in the Women in Travel Awards, but because she is intelligent, personal and a champion of other women in the industry.

How did you first discover Womenwise?

Carole Cooper invited me to be a part of the committee. My first meeting was followed by a Womenwise event and to say I was blown away by the day would be an understatement. It was extremely moving and inspirational.

What message would you share to a female who is entering the travel industry for the first time?

Back yourself from day one. Be Authentic. Dare greatly, and make sure you surround yourself with a tribe that will help you achieve your goals.
