Leadership — 6 years later with Kerri Rusnak

About the talk

In 2014, Kerri spoke at Dare Festival, which later became Spark the Change. She delivered a powerful talk about the nature of leadership, with lots of personal reflections on the roles that she had at the REA Group. You can see the video of the talk on this page.

Kerri went on to live in Europe for several roles, working in Berlin and Stockholm, with Scout24 and Spotify. Along the way, she worked in very demanding leadership roles. In her Best of… talk, she will build on her 2014 talk with powerful insights on what else she has discovered about herself and how her experience of leadership has changed.

Kerri will join us via video from Edmonton, Canada.

About LAST Anywhere Talks

LAST stands for Lean, Agile and Systems Thinking. It was born out of meetup groups and then a conference, started in Melbourne AU in 2012. Since then, it grew to also be held in Sydney, Brisbane, Canberra and Adelaide. 1st Conference (Organisational Agility) and Spark the Change Melbourne (Meaning and Purpose at work and in society) are related conferences.

LAST Anywhere talks and workshops draw subject matter from the full range of topics covered by LAST, 1st and Spark the Change. Delivered online, they aim to provide non-formal learning and valuable interactions, and extend on the value provided by physical events.

All you need is a good internet connection, a webcam, headphones, and a microphone. Also, you will need the focus to be present and make the most of the session.
