The Leadership Lessons


Place of storytelling and advocacy in leadership

‘I’m 23 years old and I haven’t got the first idea of how to be a CEO’,” Brianna Casey recalls saying when the chair of a board approached her to lead her first organisation.

As she shares in her conversation with Kate Mills, leadership can come to you unexpectedly. And at an age and time when you may not think you're ready.

Brianna is now the CEO of Foodbank Australia, aiming to fight Australia’s hunger and sourcing food to people across the country who need it. As a working parent, she's also proud of the organisation’s culture of flexibility which she says has been a significant enabler for her success.

In this wide-ranging conversation, she shares what's worked for her leadership and why -- offering some excellent lessons for all of us.
