“When you’ve got a team who are also of the same mindset, who also want to work hard naturally, not by delegation and any other management tools, it really exacerbates growth… You’ve got multiple people that can turn a molehill into a mountain.” – Kajal Pala
Kajal Pala is the CEO and Co-Founder of Mindflight7 and Founder of DreamCity, Australia’s first career education city for children, and the first global VR education training for high schoolers. She has an extensive background in multiple industries, having worked in business administration, design and construction, research and project management, governance, and business development to name a few. Striving to innovate the education space with new learning platforms, Kajal created immersive and gamified experiential training programs to provide an alternative to real-world learning, which isn’t always possible. DreamCity and Mindflight 7 helps children and young adults make more informed career choices in their lives.
“That led me to start an assignment to simply bring a new children-focussed edutainment venue to Australia as a knowledge management project, and that was just an assignment in my MBA”. – Kajal Pala on how she got the idea to build her innovative edutainment platforms

“It’s always been“Projects are nothing without people, people make the project, not the other way around. When you’re hiring or trying to find a co-founder or business partner, go for the attitude, not just the skills…if you’ve got attitude issues and other conflict taking up your time, focus, and energy, that is going to affect the growth of your business, even though the skills might be there.” – Kajal Pala
In this episode of Growth Masters, Kajal talks about how primary school, high school, and university learning has been improved with her alternative approach to real-world learning. Despite starting off in chemical engineering, she has moved through various industries and found her passion in edutainment.
