Eliza Young – leading with intent.

Leading for Success is a gathering for leaders and motivated people who want to grow their own leadership capability. We connect to share stories and be inspired by our leadership journeys, no matter what your definition of success is.

Eliza Young is our Guest Speaker at Leading for Success June.  Eliza is an inspiring example of how leading yourself first can create incredible results for your career and life.

Her speech is titled “Making opportunities by operating with intent.”

Super excited to hear her story – of how she managed to complete a bachelor’s degree in science in the US – where she was awarded a full-time scholarship to play varsity tennis  – while holding down multiple jobs at the same time.  That was just the start of her ability to make opportunities and operate with intent. 

After returning from university in the US, she started her working career back home in Australia as a personal trainer and site cleaner. Her career in the resources sector officially started as a Processing Plant site clerk, and she worked her way up to Operations manager at a remote Queensland mine-site. During that time, she also completed a post-graduate course in metallurgy and then pivoted to BHP – entering the Company in a technical role. Her leadership skills and ability to connect and cut-through at an operations level was quickly realised, and she was promptly promoted to Superintendent.  Now she is Principal Planner to the Asset President of BHP’s Olympic Dam mine – a strategic level role, critical to the success of the business.

In keeping with the Leading for Success theme in showcasing leaders from technical backgrounds – Eliza Young will share her story on how making opportunities by operating with intent has taken her to where she is today – making a difference in work and life.

Leading for Success is hosted by Melanie McCarthy. Melanie McCarthy is a professional mentor, whose work has won national awards.

Peter Dhu – inspiring leaders to be courageous.

Leading for Success is a gathering for leaders and motivated people who want to grow their own leadership capability. We connect to share stories and be inspired by our leadership journeys, no matter what your definition of success is.

Back by popular request! Our guest speaker is Peter Dhu who has been speaking professionally full time for 10 years. He began his working life working for the WA Health Department as a Medical Scientist. In his 30 years as a scientist, he managed various pathology labs and WA’s Organ Donation Agency.

He now specialises in teaching leaders to become more courageous and he helps people overcome their fear and find their voice by training them in public speaking. This is a remarkable transition because Peter is a person who stutters, and chose not to speak for much of his life. He brings a real-life success story and courage to his work, where he inspires people with his own compelling story.

He is a living example that anyone can learn to be courageous, overcome their fears and unlock their hidden potential so they can have the courage to lead, speak up and inspire the world with their stories.

Peter shows people how they can change the world one conversation at a time.
