Event overview

The Honourable Justice Margaret McMurdo AC has achieved many firsts. She was the first female judge in Queensland and the first female president of an appeal court in Australia. Justice McMurdo has been recognised for her dedication to legal educationV and women's issues as well as being a voice against the exploitation of women and children in developing countries.

ISIS, Chief Executive Officer, Audette Exel has developed a unique financial services and consulting firm which funds a non-profit foundation. One minute she is working on a half-billion-dollar banking deal, and the next visiting one of the 20,000 people that her foundation helps to bring out of poverty in Nepal and Uganda each year. Prior to ISIS Audette was an international finance lawyer and one of the youngest women in the world to have run a publicly-traded bank. Identified as a global leader of tomorrow by The World Economic Forum and a true leader to watch by The Australian Financial Review, Audette speaks frankly about having the power to choose your future.

Goodstart Early Learning, Julia Davison, Chief Executive Officer has over 25 years' experience in the healthcare and not-for-profit sector. Owned by a syndicate of community organisations, Goodstart took over the former ABC Learning business which collapsed in 2008 with a $2 billion debt. Julia has been integral in overhauling the once troubled business to be the largest childcare operation in Australia, with more than 14,000 staff serving 70,000 children. Julia is a leading advocate for investment in early years education.

From similar beginnings these women have chosen to lead and influence change in the causes they believe in.

Through the Women in Leadership series, CEDA is acknowledged as providing thought leadership, new insights, discussion and debate on a complex topic.
