Julie Cross, by her own admission, is not your “run-of-the-mill professional speaker”. In fact, Julie jokes that she prefers the title “passionate speaker”, and that’s what makes her so memorable, and her presentations so incredibly powerful and life-changing.
An experienced speaker with 17 years under her belt empowering, educating, energising and entertaining people (and some of the world’s biggest corporate brands) the country over, Julie has an innate ability to connect with her audiences. She’s not all about reciting clichéd quotes and retelling ‘same-old, same-old’ stories.
Julie believes in the power of authenticity, of telling it how it is, of sharing her own journey and being both brave and vulnerable at the same time, which leaves a longlasting impression on those fortunate enough to experience one of her shows.
While she’s committed to entertaining her audiences and making them laugh, Julie is all about the end result and ensuring audience leave with very real tips, tools and insights they can apply to their careers, businesses and personal lives.
Ashley Hurrell is the acting Director, Integrity Branch at the Department of Education and Training (the department). The Integrity Branch offers school and corporate staff training, advice and support on managing integrity risks and issues; investigates possible fraud and corruption and measures the department’s integrity performance. Ashley has worked with the department for over four years, having previously worked as a public servant at the federal level and held management positions at the Fair Work Ombudsman.
June has worked for many years in the Department (more than she cares to admit) however in that time she has had wonderful opportunities for professional learning in the areas of leadership - people and conflict management.
She is currently Registrar of the Merit Protection/Disciplinary Appeals Boards (the Boards) and the Independent Office for School Dispute Resolution(IOSDR) so she spend most of her working day embedded in conflict.
This role has given June an incredible insight into how conflicts start, and where perhaps they could have been avoided. The Boards are set up to determine an outcome of a grievance and the IOSDR to resolve a dispute – two very unique workplaces, similar but different.
