Head and Heart Workshop with People for Purpose with guest speaker, Vanessa Beggs

    Thursday 28 June (Midday - 2.00 pm)


    Whether you have social sector experience or looking for a career pivot, this monthly workshop series is designed to help carve out your unique path to working 'on purpose'.


    This month, our guest speaker is Vanessa Beggs. Vanessa has had incredible leadership experience in for profit and for purpose organisations, having spent 15+ years in executive roles, notably with the Commonwealth Bank Group developing and implementing culture, diversity, talent, leadership and capability strategies, aligned to the people strategies of the Technology, Finance and Bankwest lines of business. Vanessa jumped feet first into the for-purpose sector originally as COO at the YWCA before taking on the CEO role from Anna Bligh, to lead the organisation through the significant change that comes with defederation.

    Additionally she is an Advisory Board Member with the School of IT at the University of Sydney, a judge of the Australia Museum’s Eureka Prize and the Co-Founder of Wired for Wonder, who exist to prepare people for the future of work.


    "I would highly recommend the Head and Heart Workshop for anyone who is looking at building or advancing their career in the 'for purpose' sector. Rachael McLennan is an excellent facilitator and provides a unique perspective with leadership insights and vital information on this sector, which I believe is not available anywhere else. Personally, I thoroughly enjoyed attending the workshop and it has helped me in building a knowledge base and developing my board career in the 'for purpose' sector."
