Case Study

Case Study

Have you ever felt like you don’t belong? Like your friends or colleagues are going to discover you’re a fraud, and you don’t actually deserve your job and accomplishments? If so, you’re in good company. 70% of women, and over 50% of men, have experienced imposter syndrome at some point - that persistent nagging sense of self-doubt and insecurity. Join Isobel as she candidly reflects on her career and how the power of positive self-talk can help in overcoming professional self-doubt.


- Acknowledge your feelings and understand your self-sabotaging behaviours

- Discover the power positive self-talk in building confidence

- Leverage fear as a motivator and develop strategies to defeat self-doubt

  • Isobel Santos General Manager, Customer Banking Operations ME Bank

Case Study

There is no doubt that CMDR. Phillipa Hay is a trailblazer in her own right - making history as the first Australian woman to lead a RIMPAC taskforce. But success isn't achieved overnight and successful leaders understand that the journey is more significant and informs our character far more than the destination. You work hard to succeed, and then you work twice as hard to maintain it. Phillipa will discuss the value of defining your vision, inspire you to put yourself forward for career opportunities, and help you cultivate a winning mindset.


- Identify your vision and focus on your goals

- Develop the confidence to take risks and put yourself forward

- Understand the importance of reflecting on your success and failures

  • CMDR Phillipa Hay, CSC RAN Commander, Australian Maritime Task Force, RIMPAC Royal Australian Navy

Case Study

Leading a team or an organisation in today's new world of work is difficult. We're in uncharted waters and our destination is far from certain, but authentic leaders know that you don’t need to have all the answers - in fact, you never will. What you must have is self-awareness, the ability to reflect and a commitment to continuous learning. Join Naysla as she candidly reflects on her career, explores the good, the bad and the ugly of leadership, and how to look towards the future and navigate the unknown.


- Gain personal insight into the journey to the top

- Understand the importance of reflection in leadership

- Develop strategies to lean in and navigate the unknown

In this interactive discussion, our exclusive panel of C-Suite leaders will share experience from their own careers, discuss what it truly took to break through to executive leadership, and provide you with practical tips and tools for successful career progression.

Expert Commentary

Productivity is like a funnel – what goes into the top can make a big impact on what emerges at the end, which means there is no single hack that will magically transform you into a productive person. And with many of us continuing to face changes to our daily routine as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, staying productive can feel like more of a challenge. Pets, children, video calls and moving between home and office as part of a phased return to workplaces, all seem intent on interrupting our flow of work. In this skills-based session, you'll learn how to apply practical strategies to boost productivity and deliver increased value.


- Explore the neuroscience of attention

- Manage your phone, inbox and social media use

- Strategies to master prioritisation

  • Dr Karen Whittingham Director Impact Psychology Pty Ltd

In this intensive skills lab session, expert facilitator, Jo Wise, will coach you on the art of constructive conversations and how to leverage the power of your voice at work.


Then, the room will be split up into a series of INTERACTIVE, HANDS-ON BREAKOUT SESSIONS where you can apply what you have learned, and practice what you preach.

- Know your objective and remain solution-focused

- Preserve your professional relationships

Hear from Jane as she reflects on her career and provides you with best practice tips and tools for taking smart-risks in your personal and professional life.
