7.45   Keynote: Stepping it up – Leadership starts with you

Belinda Brosnan

CEO, executive coach, mentor, trainer, facilitator and author.

Winner of the QLD Telstra Business Women's Awards for Start-Up in 2015

Regardless of whether you have a team to manage, or are responsible solely for your own actions, leadership skills are an important part of personal and professional development. Personal leadership looks beyond the traditional realm of people leadership, allowing you to understand your own potential and take responsibility for following your own desired pathway.

It involves moving with consistency and clarity – knowing what you want and where you’re going. Belinda will take attendees through a session on how strengthening personal leadership skills can help you to achieve a promotion, build your networks, increase self-satisfaction… and even improve returns for your business!


PLUS: Ten lucky attendees will win a copy of Belinda's new book: Start with You, Lead from the Inside will be released in March 2018.

8.15 PANEL: Diversity enables growth and value creation


“It makes sense that a diverse and inclusive employee base – with a range of approaches and perspectives – would be more competitive in a globalised economy.” McKinsey & Company (Delivering though Diversity, 2018)

Our panellists, who have navigated their way into leadership positions and achieved recognition in their respective careers in the food and packaging industry, will share their views on why inclusion and diversity matters in the workplace, best practice approaches to building inclusive teams, obstacles to be overcome to increase gender balance in line management roles, and how diversity can enable growth and value creation.
