2016 CBAA Conference: Introducing the first speaker

What does positive change look like and how can it be led successfully? Who is holding back change in your station and who is driving it forward?

This year’s CBAA Conference will see Holly Ransom take the stage to explore the state of flux we find ourselves in and the challenges that change poses to us as community broadcasters, as not for profit organisations and as a sector that plays such a huge role in nurturing Australia’s open society, strong democracy and vibrant culture

Holly is the CEO of Emergent, a company specialising in the development of high performing intergenerational workforces, leadership and public policy outcomes. In 2012, Holly was named one of the AFR’s 100 Most Influential Australian Women, named both Young Western Australian of the Year and Young Volunteer of the Year, and became the world’s youngest Rotary President.

In 2014, the Australian Prime Minister appointed Holly to chair the G20 Youth Summit. Her career has involved working as Chief of Staff to National Australia Bank Wealth Chief Executive Andrew Hagger and for Rio Tinto CEO Sam Walsh, leading key organisational strategy and business improvement initiatives and integrated corporate affairs projects.

Holly is currently Co-Chair of the UN’s Global Coalition of Young Women Entrepreneurs and recently became the youngest ever female Director of an Australian Football League (AFL) Club with her appointment to the Board of the Port Adelaide Football Club.
