Executive Leadership Program - Amsterdam Class 11

Emma Gaudry
Assistant Director, Australian Public Sector Vice Manager
My experience and deep interests:
I am based in: Canberra

Currently residing in Canberra, I work in the defence and security sector.  My 20 years of professional work experience have also included employment with a humanitarian NGO and as a non-executive director on a not-for-profit board aimed at providing assistance to military personal. As someone who prioritizes leadership over a role when selecting appointments, I enjoy learning from others and working collaboratively in diverse teams to create solutions to challenging problems. Opportunities to live and work in Australia, Africa, the Middle East and Europe have provided me with the chance to see the good, the bad and the ugly side of humanity. Those who, regardless of their situation, greet others with a smile, are gracious and welcoming to complete strangers, have inspired me.

Not 100% sure where life is going to take me next, through THNK I am focused on harnessing and progressing my curiosity for creating long-term positive impacts on local communities and those less fortunate through authentic human connection, local design, and hospitality.  How this is going to evolve, I'm uncertain, but there is change afoot!
