What does leadership in the workplace look like today? What does 'leading on the edge' even mean?

The way we work has changed dramatically in the past decade. More people are employed in non-traditional industries, working flexible hours and using technology to work anywhere. Expectations of leaders have become a moving target and it is hard to know how to lead and who to follow in this new era.


Mike Baird was appointed to the role of Chief Customer Officer – Corporate and Institutional Banking at National Australia Bank (NAB) in April 2017. Prior to joining NAB, Mike was the 44th Premier of New South Wales, representing the electoral district of Manly in the NSW Legislative Assembly.

In 1989, Mike started his career as a NAB graduate in Sydney. He went on to hold senior roles in NAB’s Corporate and Institutional Banking team in Australia and London, including Global Relationship Manager and Head of Debt Capital Markets Originations based in London.

Michelle Lim graduated with a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery from Sydney University. She has extensive experience in Banking and Management Consulting. She enjoys spending quality time with family and friends, and a work out on the tennis court.
