Leading Women Podcast with Shirley Reys AO

Our Founder and CEO Shivani Gopal hosts Commonwealth Bank podcast, Leading Women. In the latest episode she interviews Shelley Reys AO and how driving change and leaving a legacy by inspiring new, courageous conversations is of national importance.

“I would refute the fact that a leader knows everything and no longer learns. I think we all continue to learn and I'm very grateful to those people around me that have been generous enough to teach me so many things. All of those people who have been willing to make themselves vulnerable in order for others to learn has been quite the catalyst for me and a really important part in making and shaping my thinking and my actions.”


Shelley is the CEO of Arrilla Indigenous Consulting, Partner and Board Member at KPMG Australia and Board Member of the Organising Committee for Olympic Games, Brisbane 2032. To listen to Episode 7 of the Leading Women podcast visit the link in the comments below 👇
