About Cathy

In turbulent, unpredictable times, having someone who can unlock the capacity and leadership of your people is key to your organisation thriving and staying strong.

That’s what I do, and I’ve done this in different ways my whole career.

As Australian CEO and Global Vice President of The Hunger Project, transforming mindsets and developing leaders was the foundation of my work . Even in the most difficult conditions, time and again people without anything were able to tap into the power of their mindset to achieve remarkable outcomes in their communities.

I now bring this deep experience and knowledge to help organisations and people develop a leadership mindset. I’ve done it with eBay in Silicon Valley, Amazon across Europe and Japan, with big and small organisations in Australia, and with individual people who want to empower their leadership ability to impact, influence and make a difference.

I am inspired by the potential of humans to rise. I believe we are all more capable and magnificent than we can ever dream. When this power is activated and realised – we are unstoppable!

As such, I am always questing for the answer to ‘what are we truly capable of?’ I bring this restless, unerring commitment to organisations and people. Let me help you and your team be great!

I am an awarded CEO and thought leader, (including) winning the AFR Women of Influence Awards, and the Davos Australia Leadership award. I am the author of Lead In: Mindsets to Lead, Live and Work Differently (2022), and Unlikely Leaders: Lessons in Leadership from the Village Classroom (2015).

Thanks for stopping by. Let me know how I might support your leadership endeavours.
