Keynote Topic #1

    Authentic leadership – Vulnerability is Power


    AUTHENTIC LEADERSHIP for the new era is challenging the norm.

    Vulnerability is POWER. No longer are leaders able to be short term focused and only interested in revenue and profit. They need to be engaged themselves in those traditional drivers as well as the cultural, social and economic drivers seen as important by the new generations of consumers and by the workers of the future.


    As one of the most powerful women in the Australian Financial Services industry, Andrea is an engaging speaker whose experience, intelligence, honesty, humility and quick humour serve to consistently inform, entertain and inspire her audiences

          “I have known Andrea Slattery in her role as CEO of the SMSF Association for some years, more recently as a Board member of the Association. I can attest to her incredibly good advocacy skills, her determination and tenacity in pursuing matters for the SMSF community. Her advocacy is tempered by a constructive and collaborative approach and an unfailingly gracious manner. As a consequence she has built the Association into an influential body, and won many friends for the SMSF Association in corporate and policy circles.”
