How to change our mindset and beliefs with Cathy Burke

Season #1

Cathy Burke is a leadership trainer, author and mentor. She knows about leading in difficult situations. For 20 years Cathy was the CEO for The Hunger Project Australia, and then Global Vice President, working to end hunger across South Asia and Africa.

Cathy was an integral member of a visionary team who developed leadership at scale in villages all over the world. Through this work, millions of the world’s poorest people stepped into their power, able to feed themselves and their families.

Cathy now brings this experience to help people and organisations lead to address 21st Century challenges. I first met Cathy at a business chicks event when we were presenting together and her story is incredible as well as her tips. I really hope you enjoy this conversation.
