Cassandra Kelly AM, Co-founder and Senior Advisor,
Leadership and Technology
I am an advisor to leaders who dare, thought leader and company director. I work with those committed to action. I disrupt thinking and challenge the status quo which allows clients to embrace opportunities that will help them to thrive.
I believe clients deserve advice that is not only insightful but bold and exceptional service from people that they trust.
I am a keen philanthropist, having supported multiple national and international causes and a champion for diversity, including co-founding the Glass Elevator.
I have lived and worked in most of the world's top twenty economies, and have advised local and international leaders in business and government on destination-led strategy, destination-led leadership, diversity and projects of commercial and global significance.
I am also an Expert member of the European Union's Global Tech Panel.
