I am delighted to announce Dr Kirstin Ferguson as the keynote speaker for Ikigai: Women & Medicine on 20th October 2018 in Brisbane. I first met Kirstin last year as one of the women featured in her #CelebratingWomen campaign. This positive campaign celebrating diverse women as role models, connecting women and supporting each other was one of things that inspired Women & Medicine.
Dr Kirstin Ferguson is an Australian company director. Beginning her career as a military officer, she went on to become the CEO of a successful global consulting business. With university honours degrees in both history and law, Kirstin also has a PhD in leadership and governance for which she has received a number of academic and industry awards. She has been named one of Australia’s 100 Women of Influence, is a Sir Winston Churchill Fellow, and was recognised by Women & Leadership Australia with an award for Excellence in Women’s Leadership. Kirstin was the creator of the widely acclaimed #CelebratingWomen campaign and is the co-author of Women Kind with Catherine Fox.
Kirstin will be signing copies of her book Women Kind at the event.
