    Ep20 - Authentic Leadership Podcast Sandra Sully

    In this episode of the Authentic Leadership podcast, Gabrielle had the pleasure of interviewing Sandra Sully. Sandra has had over 30 years’ experience as an editor, journalist and TV presenter. She currently heads Channel Ten’s News First as the weeknight news presenter.

    Sandra’s extensive journalistic career is littered with highlights but perhaps none are more significant and poignant as the September 11 terror attacks. With calm and poise, Sandra was the first person to tell Australia about the tragic events unfolding before her eyes while delivering a professional news bulletin on the world's worst terrorist attack.

    In this podcast Sandra talks about how she ‘fell’ into journalism and the changes she has seen in the industry over the decades. She also talks frankly about when her personal values have clashed with the demands of her role. Tune in to find out what Sandra loves about her job and what she loves doing when she is not reading the news.

    Ep19 - Storytelling Interview With Steve Denning

    Ep19 - Storytelling Interview With Steve Denning

    It was Charlie ‘Tremendous’ Jones who said, “You will be the same person in five years as you are today except for the people you meet and the books you read.”

    Well, 15 years ago Gabrielle read a book that changed the direction of her life. It was so good that she read another two books by the same author, Steve Denning, the former Senior Executive of the World bank. The titles were The Springboard, Squirrel Inc and The Leaders Guide to Storytelling.

    The content she read prompted her to leave corporate life and start a company teaching leaders how to share stories.

    Fast forward a few years and Gabrielle got the opportunity to see Steve speak. Then after another couple of years passed, she had a coffee with him on one of his trips to Australia. You may be interested to know that Steve was born and raised in Sydney.

    If Gabrielle's storytelling training has had a positive impact on the way you lead and communicate, then you have Steve Denning to thank for that. We hope you enjoy this podcast interview with Gabrielle's professional idol and the irrefutable father of storytelling in business.

    Ep15: Storytelling Interview With Lori Silverman

    Ep15: Storytelling Interview With Lori Silverman

    Today, storytelling is extremely popular in business ...and rightly so! Over time, it has come to be recognised as a critical leadership and communication skill. Back in in the early 2000’s it certainly wasn’t.  So, Gabrielle thought she would pay homage to the early pioneers of storytelling and interview them.

    A few weeks ago, Gabrielle had the pleasure of sitting down with Lori Silverman who graciously made some time for her while she was on holidays. They spoke about storytelling and the changes Lori has seen over the last 15 years. They also both got a bit fired up discussing how the term ‘storytelling’ has been hijacked by some fields, which is causing confusion around storytelling in business.
