In our next fireside chat, we’re joined by Cecily McGuckin, Australia’s first and only female CEO of an Australian steel distribution company. Cecily is a trail blazer of her industry, passionate about driving change around her and in her family-owned business, Queensland Steel and Sheet (QSS).
After initially starting her career in finance, Cecily quickly found her passion in construction and thrived in leading roles at Suncorp and Mirvac.
These are just some of the experiences that have shaped Cecily as a leader today – resilient, a problem solver and out of the box thinker. As a woman in a man’s world, she has needed to prove herself time and time again. Not just to her peers and her staff, but her father who started the business from nothing. Cecily credits her emotional intelligence and gut instincts as the key drivers behind her success as a CEO. Not to mention her willingness to take a breath and calmly find the right moment to create conversations that generate results.
Fireside Chats are exclusive opportunities for PowerPlayers to have frank, open and honest discussions, so we hope you come ready for candid conversations and plenty of questions.
