Supporting and Communicating with our Spouses with Vicky Landmark

September 03, 2019

On the Resourceful podcast series so far we’ve spoken to successful and highly knowledgeable leaders in the mining and resources industry. We’ve picked their brains regarding career highlights, lessons they’ve learned and obtained invaluable insights. But behind every great person, there is another great person willing to sacrifice and support their partner through a career that is constantly changing and evolving.

To kick off our focus on families, we’ve brought our previous guest, John Landmark’s wife, Vicky in to provide us with an honest and inspirational look at what it’s really like to live and breathe mining and resources.

John and Vicky Landmark have recently embarked on their 10th international move and although John has previously discussed with us how he got to where he is today, we’re interested to hear how Vicky and their children have adjusted to a life where the only constant seems to be inconsistency.

Vicky is honest about the hard times that they have had to endure as a family, but also exudes optimism and a contagious sense of adventure. This type of life certainly is not for everyone, but for those that are willing to embrace change and see the glass as half full, there are significant rewards.

We’re excited to share this episode with you and look forward to delivering more from the families supporting our mining and resources industry.
