HOW I GOT THE JOB
When Colleen Callander started working part-time at Just Jeans as a teenager, little did she know she’d go on to become CEO at two of the most iconic brands in the Australian fashion industry. Now CEO of Sportsgirl, she’s got a thing for creating environments that allow people to contribute, challenge, be challenged and be creative.
HOW TO GET STUFF DONE
Jane Martino is a woman of many talents; it’s pretty hard to wrap her up in a few sentences, actually. She’s a serial entrepreneur and is the person behind brands like Smiling Mind, Shout for Good and Undertow Media. She has a knack for building commercially successful and socially conscious businesses that perk the interest of bigger corporates. She’s basically #entrepreneurgoals.

MAKING CLEVER HAPPEN
Last year Dr Jason Fox was named Keynote Speaker of the Year, so he’s got to be good, right? He is. Jason is a leadership nut who wants people to think differently, have better conversations and make braver, wiser decisions.
WHY CREATIVITY MATTERS
Dee Madigan is an award winning creative director and has worked on some of the world’s best-known brands including Coca-Cola, Rexona and Nestle. She’s also one of Australia’s most experienced political campaigners. Dee’s the executive creative director at Campaign Edge and a regular on ABC’s Gruen – she’s literally the expert in the art of persuasion.
BUILDING A BILLION DOLLAR BUSINESS
In 1998 Cathie and her husband, Stuart, started a small pharmacy business – they were employees one and two. Now, nearly 20 years on it has become a billion-dollar healthcare enterprise. Icon Group now employs more than 2000 people and provides cancer care and medication services to over a million Australians annually, in addition to operating cancer care centres in Singapore, China and New Zealand. Over the years, Cathie has learnt a lesson or 1000 about business – what does it take to build a billion dollar business?
In the past few years, Kathy Kelly has faced the unimaginable – losing two of her three teenage children in circumstances that should have, and could have, been avoided. We have two choices when things go wrong. We can do nothing or we can harness the emotion and turn it into something good. Together with her husband Ralph, they have changed laws, introduced legislation, advocated for victims and established preventative programs all of which have contributed to real change keeping people safe. Kathy is brave, courageous, committed and stronger than most will ever have to be and there’s so much we can learn about pushing through adversity from her.
IN CONVERSATION WITH
Find yourself in activewear more often than not? That’s Lorna Jane Clarkson’s fault. Not only did she coin the phrase ‘Activewear’ but also become creator of the Activewear category. She now leads a global multi-million-dollar empire and is a true testament to the fact that hard work, commitment and a ‘never give up’ attitude are key ingredients to success.
