Rachael Robertson – Author and Former Antarctic Expedition Leader

365 Shades of White

Plenary Session 3
Thursday 11 May
11:15 am – 01:00 pm

 

Rachael Robertson, with 15 years of experience leading diverse and remote teams and business units, took on the leadership of the 58th annual expedition to the edge of the world: Antarctica.  The year was tough, grueling, and exhausting, but ultimately extremely rewarding and fruitful.  The intensity of the leadership role meant being on-duty all day, every day, for 12 months with no respite.  This gave her the opportunity to road test her leadership ideas the hard way, without the luxury of peers, a desk, or high-speed broadband! Antarctica was a “leadership laboratory” in the most extreme, hostile environment on Earth.

Rachael presents real leadership with real stories and insights into the highs and lows and the ups and downs of being an authentic leader.  Her work is in response to a growing demand in the business world for practical tools backed up by solid theory from someone who has actually led and led successfully.  She draws on incredible and often hilarious examples of what authentic leadership looks like in a world where most classic leadership theory doesn’t apply.

Rachael addresses the challenges of leading diverse teams that seem to have no obvious common ground, motivating people to do really hard tasks, and dealing with crises when all eyes are on you.  Since returning from Antarctica, she has spoken at over 1500 national and international conferences and events, working with clients from all industries and sectors, including mining, pharmaceutical, construction, health, education, finance, hospitality, and retail.

Daniel Flynn – Co-founder, Managing Director at Thankyou

Turning Conventional Thinking on its Head

Plenary Session 4
Friday 12 May
02:00 pm – 04:00 pm

 

Daniel Flynn is a multi-award-winning social entrepreneur and masterful storyteller, compelled forwards by a vision that’s changing the world we live in.

At 19 years old, Daniel Flynn was profoundly impacted by two of our world’s extremes; where currently there are more than 736 million people living in extreme poverty, and at the same time, global consumer spending totals a staggering US$63 trillion per year.  This led to a simple idea to launch a consumer brand that exists all-for the end of extreme poverty, bringing consumers a product choice that could change the course of history.  He and his then girlfriend, now-wife Justine co-founded Thankyou, a social enterprise which has gone against all odds to become one of Australia’s most successful social business stories, globally recognised for its innovation, disruption and impact.  With over $17 million AUD raised for its impact partners from products sold in Australia, Thankyou has now set its sights on rapid global expansion to help see the end of extreme poverty in our lifetime.

Whether he is being interviewed by the 44th President of the United States, President Barack Obama, presenting to a stadium with 10’s of thousands of people in the audience as his words are being translated into multiple languages, or challenging leaders in intimate boardroom sessions, Daniel Flynn has an incredible ability to engage and encourage his audiences to flip their thinking and deeply consider their purpose to see ground-breaking results.

Daniel Flynn – Co-founder, Managing Director at Thankyou

Turning Conventional Thinking on its Head

Plenary Session 4
Friday 12 May
02:00 pm – 04:00 pm

 

Daniel Flynn is a multi-award-winning social entrepreneur and masterful storyteller, compelled forwards by a vision that’s changing the world we live in.

At 19 years old, Daniel Flynn was profoundly impacted by two of our world’s extremes; where currently there are more than 736 million people living in extreme poverty, and at the same time, global consumer spending totals a staggering US$63 trillion per year.  This led to a simple idea to launch a consumer brand that exists all-for the end of extreme poverty, bringing consumers a product choice that could change the course of history.  He and his then girlfriend, now-wife Justine co-founded Thankyou, a social enterprise which has gone against all odds to become one of Australia’s most successful social business stories, globally recognised for its innovation, disruption and impact.  With over $17 million AUD raised for its impact partners from products sold in Australia, Thankyou has now set its sights on rapid global expansion to help see the end of extreme poverty in our lifetime.

Whether he is being interviewed by the 44th President of the United States, President Barack Obama, presenting to a stadium with 10’s of thousands of people in the audience as his words are being translated into multiple languages, or challenging leaders in intimate boardroom sessions, Daniel Flynn has an incredible ability to engage and encourage his audiences to flip their thinking and deeply consider their purpose to see ground-breaking results.

Rachael Robertson – Author and Former Antarctic Expedition Leader

365 Shades of White

Plenary Session 3
Thursday 11 May
11:15 am – 01:00 pm

 

Rachael Robertson, with 15 years of experience leading diverse and remote teams and business units, took on the leadership of the 58th annual expedition to the edge of the world: Antarctica.  The year was tough, grueling, and exhausting, but ultimately extremely rewarding and fruitful.  The intensity of the leadership role meant being on-duty all day, every day, for 12 months with no respite.  This gave her the opportunity to road test her leadership ideas the hard way, without the luxury of peers, a desk, or high-speed broadband! Antarctica was a “leadership laboratory” in the most extreme, hostile environment on Earth.

Rachael presents real leadership with real stories and insights into the highs and lows and the ups and downs of being an authentic leader.  Her work is in response to a growing demand in the business world for practical tools backed up by solid theory from someone who has actually led and led successfully.  She draws on incredible and often hilarious examples of what authentic leadership looks like in a world where most classic leadership theory doesn’t apply.

Rachael addresses the challenges of leading diverse teams that seem to have no obvious common ground, motivating people to do really hard tasks, and dealing with crises when all eyes are on you.  Since returning from Antarctica, she has spoken at over 1500 national and international conferences and events, working with clients from all industries and sectors, including mining, pharmaceutical, construction, health, education, finance, hospitality, and retail.
