Bottoms Up
Dame Jenny Shipley

Two things New Zealanders always talk about: Maori culture and rugby.

Ambitious, adventurous, brave; the early settlers of Australia and NZ, good lessons for leadership today, she argued, neatly avoiding ideas of invasion and dispossession.

Roles are cloaks we wear, but who are you? Shipley argued for the authentic self in leadership.

Like Hargreaves, Shipley argued that identity was important, knowing who you are, and the importance of students discovering their own identity.

Shipley spoke really well, passionately, and with personal convictions, with some good quotes:

‘The world is flat for this generation’.

‘Are we ready for the age of interactions?’
