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.
Come along to The Edge to hear from two leaders who have had to learn how to adapt to this ever-changing environment.
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.

What is The Edge?
Short. Sharp. Smart. The Edge is a talk series that will live up to its name. Like TedEx, two expert speakers will address a topic in a short, but content-rich style. But we want to do more. After the talks, Dr. Justine Toh of the Centre for Public Christianity will allow you to interview the speakers and take them to the edge of the topic.
