Today our guest is Kerry Chikarovski. She is a leader, a mentor, and is passionate about helping people – and as Annie said “she is a total badass woman!”.
Kerry is the first woman to lead a major political party in NSW (she was someone who provided women of my generation an example of a female leader). We had a frank discussion about leadership, how trying is important, and Kerry also shared some great advice on giving things a go and how trying to achieve things matters.
