What can HR learn from Australia’s 'fiercest political warrior'?

Former Prime Minister Tony Abbott’s chief of staff Peta Credlin is speaking at the National HR Summit next month

What can HR learn from Australia’s 'fiercest political warrior'?
A strategist and policy professional with more than a decade of experience at the highest levels of Australian politics, Credlin was referred to by former Prime Minister Tony Abbott as “one of the smartest and the fiercest political warrior I have ever worked with".

Now forging a new career as a Sky News host and columnist for News Corp Australia, Credlin will speak at the upcoming National HR Summit, offering delegates a glimpse into the realities of leadership in Australia’s highest office.

While most HR professionals don’t work at Government House, many of the challenges Credlin has faced will resonate – from managing complex issues and making tough decisions in a high-stakes environment to navigating politics and power plays in the workplace. As a powerful woman in a high-profile role, Credlin has particular insight into the dynamics of leadership and power and the gender stereotypes that many come up against in the workplace.

The National HR Summit was awarded Australia’s best business event in 2016. A limited number of tickets are still available at www.hrsummit.com.au.
