This years speaker is ACT ESA Commissioner Georgeina Whelan.
Georgeina Whelan knows a disaster when she sees one. In her first fire season as the ACT’s Emergency Services Agency commissioner she stepped into the catastrophic conditions that started in late 2019 in Australia’s south East and raged into the new year. As the fires were extinguished, the hail came and went and then a global health Pandemic kicked off.
In her role in the frontline of community safety and response and her extensive military career, she has witnessed devastating tragedy and led complex recovery and rebuilding efforts and learnt a lot along the way about resilience and what it takes to dig deep in tough times. Join us as she reflects on lessons learnt from a career in disaster response and how she continues to deliver positive leadership under pressure
