Today we are talking to Kylie Sheather, Director of Finance Business Partnering at Technology One.
Kylie’s story is one of trusting your gut, going your own way, and making decisions for yourself.
She didn’t go to London like most people on the podcast have done before and doesn’t have an audit background but has still become a highly competent professional in her field.
We talk about:
– How she was impacted professionally by the QLD Floods.
– What it’s like to get a call at 2am in the morning needing to deal with a safety incident.
– What it means to have a seat at the table and why it’s important.
– What her leadership philosophy entails and how she became the leader she is today.
– And how important it is to try things even if you feel you aren’t quite ready.
A great discussion with a talented professional.
This episode is Co-Hosted by BRISCA Managing Director Sumith Dissanayake, and Jack Ferguson.
