My Leadership Journey – A Random Walk
Dr Evans describes her leadership journey as a random walk because of the opportunities that have opened up to her when she said Yes! to interesting and new roles.
This has led to a career that has spanned power generation and distribution, steel production, university research and lecturing, standards setting (nationally and internationally), medical devices and now as CEO Of Engineers Australia, in both executive and Board roles.
In her address she will reflect on what success has meant and why being an engineer has placed her ideally to contribute as a leader.
