Authenticity. Unleash your secret super power.


We hear a lot of hype about authenticity and authentic leadership. With good reason!  Authentic leaders stay true to their own beliefs, morals, values and principles, making them more relatable and approachable. They take ownership of decisions and admit responsibility for their mistakes. They also recognise the power that comes with their role, and their responsibility for the wellbeing of their employees.

BUT revealing our authentic selves can be just a little bit scary… in the beginning.

The funny thing about authenticity is that it tends to feed itself. Revealing our vulnerabilities and beliefs helps us to connect with others which, in turn, empowers us to be more authentic!

Join NAWO and PepsiCo to hear inspiring leaders sharing the challenges and super powers of authentic leadership.

Keynote speaker: Anita Patrick, Acting Human Resources Director, PepsiCo. With over 17 years’ experience across sales and marketing, IT, supply chain and operations, retail and fast-moving consumer goods, in both global and ASX top 50 organisations, Anita’s areas of specialisation are HR strategy & planning, change management, M&A, talent management, team & leadership development, employee experience and employee engagement.

Drawing on their own journeys and experiences to explore what makes an authentic leader and the barriers and successes that come with it, our Q&A panel includes:
Doug Stakic, Senior Plant Manager.
Jenny Supple, Quality Manager.
Michael Steed, Production Manager.
Michael de Lang, Technical Manager

The panel will be facilitated by Harry Venner, HR Manager SA/WA/NT.
