Case Study

In order to get ahead and forge a new path, leaders must adopt a growth mentality and imagine the art of what is possible. Leaders need to ask themselves: What can we do now that we couldn't do before?

Join VP, Optus Enterprise, Theresa Eyssens as she reflects strategic components of her role and career, explores how a focus on customer success has driven her personal success, and how being the first female in her role, along with other senior women in the space, has enabled new perspective to bear across multiple vertical market sectors.

Case Study

Coaching and mentoring women in the telecommunication workforce is a key need. Particularly with the relative number of female leaders shrink as they advance up the ladder. The challenges are also around lack of role models to aspire to. It is becoming necessary for leaders to uplift their female employees. Especially in a male dominated industry, men in positions of power can also mentor women, and do so in an appropriate and empowering fashion. Jackie will give you insights into how she has come across inspiring male leaders who took initiatives to uplift women in the industry.


- Engage men in the uplifting aspiring female leaders

- Encourage women to seek mentors to advance in their careers

- Harness the power of a mentor-mentee relationship

  • Jackie Khoo General Manager, Customer Channels & Enterprise Operations, & Project Evolve Lead NBN
