Run Like A Girl? My a-ha moment and leading like a girl, in my new CEO role

So the best financial executives are white men who wear ties?

Obviously.  If this FULL-PAGE ad on page 10 of the Australian Financial Review’s Weekend Edition is anything to go by, that is.

 
Clearly, the AFR does not imagine that Australia’s next CFO of the year will be a woman. Or Asian. They …

Check this out, I'm in awe. My friend Ronni Kahn is at it again, disrupting the food supply chain, offering food security to the vulnerable. I've shared before about OzHarvest. When I first met Ronni ten years ago I knew she was special, but what she has achieved and continues to achieve truly blows my mind. She cares so much about the people that OzHarvest serves, and every person in her life, and gives her everything to make sure that no person needs to go hungry. The international expansion of OzHarvest is awesome, and this "take what you need" supermarket in Sydney is just brilliance. Repurposing and rehoming surplus food, keeping it out of landfill so that we all benefit and business overheads are lowered. Win. Win. Win. Love it! ... See MoreSee Less
