Betty Moinet is a powerhouse when it comes to Franco-Australian relationships, thanks to her numerous related accomplishments, and her natural gift of connecting people and communities.
In her latest engagement, Betty joined the FACCI Board as the Lead for the “Paris 2024 – Brisbane 2032: The Business of the Games” task force, which is only fitting considering her impressive background, and vast Australian and French business connections.
In 2021, Betty professionally transitioned, with great passion and success, to a new role as Client Success Manager for Local and State Governments at Esri Australia, working within the GIS industry – Geographic Information System, which creates, manages, maps, and analyses all types of data; very well suited.
Betty is an incredibly determined, steadfast, and enthusiastic professional, highly adept at negotiation, business planning, team building, networking, and analytical thinking. Her previous Director and Manager roles have provided excellent experiences in Leadership, Project Management, Strategy Building, Business Development, Marketing (esp. Graphic Design), Event Management, and Community and Stakeholder Engagement. She is often very highly regarded as a natural project leader and problem solver dedicated to reaching set targets to the absolute best of her ability, which is strongly evident in her contributions to French, Francophone, and Franco-Australian communities.
As Co-Founder, and Director/Event Manager of the Brisbane French Festival since 2010, Betty has focused her efforts on championing intercultural connection, visibility, and inclusivity within the French and Australian communities in Brisbane. Her aptitude for fostering business and cultural relationships is an immense asset, and through one of Brisbane’s most recognised cultural events, she continues to promote the importance of multicultural bonds and exchanges within communities.
Previously, for 10 years from 2006 to 2016, Betty also served on the board of the Alliance Française de Brisbane, following which she is now instated as a “membre de vie” (life member).
For her tremendous efforts for multicultural unity, connection, and celebration, particularly within the French community in Brisbane, Betty was awarded the prestigious French National Order of Merit (Chevalier de l’Ordre National du Mérit) in 2019. Additionally, in 2021, Le Courrier Australien invited Betty to be an inaugural member of their jury for “French of the Year in Australia”.
Each team she has worked with in her several roles has been undeniably and incredibly fortunate to have her skills, knowledge, and fantastic qualities. Betty is always determined to see projects and goals through to fruition, no matter what it takes, and is a true born leader in everything she does.
Betty holds a Master’s Degree in International Business from the Institut Supérieur de Commerce International a Dunkerque, following a Classe Préparatoire aux Grandes Ecoles de Commerce in Lille.
