Understanding the power and importance of women in leadership

Drawing on a significant leadership background, and on her own fascinating story, Sara will discuss the Power and Importance of Women in Leadership.  

As the world moves rapidly towards a purpose led economy, businesses and governments must adjust the way leaders are selected, recruited and trained.  

The role of women in leadership becomes a strategic imperative as intuitive, collaborative and people focused leaders become essential to organisational relevance and survival.  

Reflecting  upon this changing dynamic Sara will discuss how business and government can plan and take action now to ensure they have the diverse, talented and ethical leadership teams needed for tomorrow.  

Offering a call to action for all women about the vital importance for human kind for women to empower and support each other, Sara is a humorous and engaging speaker who will share her own story from being a teenage runaway working on Australia's largest cattle properties to operating Australia's newest airport as General Manager.
