    #148 Michele Chevally Hedge - Is Nutrition the key to Gravitas?

    Is Nutrition the key to gravitas? It’s hard to pull off the witty, relaxed, and confident demeanour of someone with “it”, with Gravitas IF we don’t feel the foundation of confidence and self-belief to begin with. Join my conversation with Michele Chevally Hedge, a nutritional medicine practitioner and health author, who was previously a marketing manager at Microsoft. We discussed the moment in her career where her waistline was growing as fast as the company she worked for, the morning she tried to pull on a skirt that was too tight and how she couldn’t bear to look in the mirror. Michele really understands the needs of time poor corporate executives who, family, or not, want health but not hassle. We touch on the pillars of energy, mental well-being, sleep, and productivity. All without giving up wine and coffee. Terrific conversation with some actionable tips. Listen for the exclusive bonus mentioned in this episode.

    #145 Charlie McGillis - Dare to be legendary

    Think space is all rocket launches or the astronauts? Think again. To most of us, when we hear the term space, we think of Astronauts. In fact, you’ve probably used space 30 times a day and didn’t’ even know! This episode, I am joined by the remarkable Charlie McGillis. With over 26 years of distinguished service in the United States Air Force and a seamless transition into the commercial space sector, Charlie's insights are enlightening and her passion contagious. Charlie is the Founder & CEO of 2 Polaris & Beyond, LLC, Vice President, Public Sector for The Provenance Chain™ Network, a partner at Elara Nova: The Space Consultancy, Independent Review Board Member for the U.S. Department of Commerce, Mentor for Creative Destruction Lab Space Sector and an Advisor for Project Air Power for the Irregular Warfare Initiative. Previously she held senior VP roles for Slingshot Aerospace after leaving senior military roles. Charlie's strategic leadership, passion for impact, and dedication to empowering girls in STEM shine in this inspiring conversation. She shares how she found clarity, courage, and intentionality in her career, and valuable tips on investing in yourself, branding, and finding satisfaction in your work after she joined my Brave Feminine Leadership masterclass. Discover how space influences our daily lives in ways you may not have realised, and why knowing your North Star is one thing but being audacious with it can lead you to new heights.

    #144 Simone Clarke - When can we take Gender out of Leadership

    #144 Simone Clarke - When can we take Gender out of Leadership

    Simone Clarke, CEO of UN Women, Australia is a seasoned executive leader with over 25 years of experience in global sustainability, humanitarian development, and not-for-profit leadership. She advocates for women's empowerment, sustainability, and impactful social programs. With extensive experience at organizations like UNICEF, Save the Children, Telstra, the AFL, and Mission Australia, Simone brings valuable expertise to the table. In our conversation, Simone challenges gender stereotypes and emphasizes the need to focus on leadership rather than gendered labels. Simone shares how she is tackling the very real challenges as a result of the workplace’s historical bias towards men and that gender diversity is not just an issue for People & Culture teams. We talk about being a CEO, the continual need to reflect and the skills Simone is still investing in. Lastly, we reflect on the dramatic change in sentiment we felt towards International Women’s Day (IWD) celebrations and the potential trivialisation of a fundamental human right. Another brilliant conversation with a powerful leader driving change.
