The ultimate objective is to empower Boards to add value and to be more effective in their governance responsibility. Julie is a highly skilled public speaker who rates highly with audiences looking to understand how to work more effectively with Boards or how to improve their skills in public sector or corporate governance. She is also a regular facilitator of industry conferences and corporate events.

Julie will leave her audience with a view from the top that is inspiring and motivating to aspiring audiences
Julie Garland McLellan is a professional company director. She has studied internationally and worked with some of the world's leading consultants on governance, but when she joined her first government sector board she was lost! Julie helps boards and executives to discover the true reason for government ownership and to build powerful relationships with stakeholders so that political, societal and environmental goals get scored. This presentation leaves everyone motivated and with some practical ideas to implement in their organisations.
Julie has spent most of her life building profitable and effective businesses. There are a few simple techniques that will allow every business to reach its potential. Honest and open communication about what is wanted, when it is wanted and how to get it is the only way to get agreement and alignment across the organisation. Julie will use real stories from organisations as diverse as BHP, Melbourne Water and the Cat Protection Society to show how any organisation can start a process of strategy development that will create a vibrant and successful business. You will be left with a few simple steps that lead to great strategy, clear planning and excellent follow-through.
Julie spent three years and asked 241 directors from government, commercial and not-for-profit business what could prevent their organisations from being successful. The answers are enlightening. Most risk management systems are managing the wrong risks!
