  • Louise Baker Chief Executive Officer Capability Centre

Case Study

Leadership is not about taking on every task that comes past your desk, it’s not about putting your hand up with every opportunity because you feel you need to do it for credibility, and it’s not about staying quiet when you feel you cannot be heard. A great leader knows their power, understands when to share the load, and creates strong relationships within the team for outstanding outcomes. In this insightful session, Shelley shares her journey in becoming a strong female leader, and what her leadership looks like today. 

- Stand your ground as a female leader

- Understand the balance of sharing your workload

- Establishing expectations and relationships  


  • Shelley Robertson Executive General Manager, Energy Mineral Resources Limited

Panel

Whether you call it balance, or just making it work, we all manage our work life and personal life differently. Striving to find the “balance” is not always a simple task, and for many it can be a challenge of knowing where to even start. In this interactive panel discussion, you will hear from senior women leaders who have, or are working towards finding their own unique “balance”. You will learn to embrace the change and challenge, understand there is no one-size-fits-all solution, and learn to be kind to yourself. 

- Understand your own unique situation, demands, and capacities

- Learning there is no one-size-fits-all solution

- The importance of being kind with yourself

- Stepping into new leadership roles

- The challenges and triumphs

- A first hand leadership journey

  • Michelle Ash Technology Executive OZ Minerals

Case Study

There is no right or wrong way to lead, but sometimes it is easy to get stuck in the flow of a workplace. It is important to take a breath, reflect and understand who you truly are as a leader and as a person. What is important to you, where do you see your team, and how are you going to get there? Marianne leads with authenticity, possesses a success focused leadership style, and continues to be a driven and dedicated leader. Hear Mariannes' insights into the benefits of being an authentic leader, achieving great things, and taking your team with you.

- Learning to be an authentic leader

- Be the driven leader you want to be

  • Dr Marianne Vosloo Chief Information Officer & EGM Digital Division Energy Queensland

Case Study

In your career journey it is easy to think and feel there is a path you must follow, however a career journey is not linear. Every opportunity or risk you take is the opportunity to learn, develop, and always gain immense benefit. At times it is hard to have the courage to step off the path and forge our own route, but having courage in yourself and career could take you further than what you ever thought. In this session, Sarah shares her personal journey, and what it means to have courage in your career.

- A personal story in taking a risk and reaping the rewards

- Exploring the opportunities provided or created

- Courage to forge your own career route


  • Sarah Withell Executive General Manager HSE Whitehaven Coal

Expert Commentary

Research shows that organisations save one work day and $1,500 for every crucial conversation they have rather than avoid. And yet, we shy away from them. Why? Because usually they are needed when the stakes are high, emotions run strong and the impact could have a devastating effect on your career or life. How do you then create a culture where colleagues can speak openly with each other, change direction more quickly and get better results? By making sure they have the skills to do so…safely.

- Know when a crucial conversation needs to be had or is happening

- Identify what each person is saying and what perspective they’re coming from

- Get constructive outcomes while reinforcing relationships and trust

  • Arabella Macpherson Founder & Communications Coach Resonate Communications

Panel

The culture of a workplace can have a direct impact on the success of the organisation, the safety of staff, and the inspiration for growth.

Various industry leaders will have different experiences in establishing a desired workplace environment, and in this interactive panel discussion we hear those individual stories, share our goals, and learn the importance of a safe and inclusive workplace culture. 

- Cultivating a success and safety focused workplace
