Belinda Hazell is the Principal Consultant for Optimum Standard which is a proudly Tasmanian business with the core aim to build better futures for business. 

Before starting Optimum Standard with Allison Clark in 2003, Belinda worked in varying roles within the agribusiness sector -  including the family horticulture / mixed farming enterprises.  Belinda’s leadership is demonstrated through her active participation at executive level on national / state boards and committees.  As an industry advocate, Belinda is passionate about emphasising the recognition and value of female roles in the rural sector which we know is overlooked or discounted.    This arguably makes Belinda an activist for women in this sector. 

She is the Chair of Tasmanian Women in Agriculture, a volunteer organisation that has been promoting connecting, supporting and celebrating rural women since 1994.    Information about TWiA is found at www.taswomeninag.org
