Previous guest speakers

Anne Blackburn

In August 2019 we welcomed Anne Blackburn, Director of Warren and Mahoney, to Industry Women to share her thoughts on feminism and risk taking and some universal lessons for working women. Thanks to an impressive and long career in journalism, public service, banking, governance and strategic advice, Anne had a great story to tell.

Melodie Robinson

When Melodie Robinson was 11 she fell in love with rugby, but back then rugby wasn’t what young woman did. The former Black Fern and broadcaster, now founder of The Wonderful Group and communications specialist, shared her story which involved breaking stereotypes, being the first fulltime female rugby broadcaster, and what she’s trying to achieve in the media space for women in 2019. Her story made us chuckle and left us all feeling inspired.

Sina Wendt-Moore

As CEO of Leadership NZ, and with 25-years’ experience across the commercial, public and social-profit sectors, Sina is committed to helping grow a generation of authentic and ethical leaders for the 21st century. At our August 2018 Industry Women event Sina shared her story about a lifetime in leadership. It was great to hear from someone who has achieved so much, and get a fresh perspective on what leadership really means.

Denise Arnold

A accomplished lawyer, busy mum, and Founder of the Cambodia Charitable Trust, Denise has achieved some amazing things that have changed the lives for many. In March 2018 Denise joined us to talk about how to be brave and bold. It was an incredibly inspiring and motivating talk that reminded us how we can challenge our own thinking and contribution to society – and gave a whole new meaning to being “busy”!

Dame Julie Christie D.N.Z.M, O.N.Z.M

In October 2017, we were very fortunate to have Dame Julie Christie talk with us about the up-side of failure and the three pivotal mistakes that shaped the New Zealand television landscape and her impressive career.

Theresa Gattung

Leading New Zealand businesswoman, author and philanthropist, Theresa Gattung, spoke at our inaugural Industry Women event in 2016. Named in Fortune magazine’s list of the 50 most powerful women in international business several times since 2002, Theresa has forged an incredible career. It was great to have her share her story.
