Kelly McAuliffe has great experience in bringing together widely different groups, especially across experience levels within an organisation to communicate. She highlights how all of us are people first and there’s loads to learn from listening in.

About Our Guest

Kelly McAuliffe’s passion is for connecting and engaging others has been evident throughout her whole career. Having worked within a large government organisation she understands the complexities that come with cross functional work units operating in different environments.
Kelly is incredibly passionate about connecting the unconnected.

The role of leadership into the future is pivotal to ensure you harness the energy from all your people and provide them with the permission and authority to have a voice and be a part of future decision making. The future of work is an inside job and collaboration requires integration not domination.
