Overview

What makes a good leader in the current context of banking and finance? How do you deal with challenges and create pathways for success? What is it like to transition from a traditional field to one of innovation? And how do you make it to the top in your chosen field?

We invite you to join us in conversation with Belinda Hogan, CFO of 86 400, Australia's first smartbank as part of the WiBF Leadership Series. Earlier this year, Belinda was named one of the AFR BOSS Young Executives for 2021.

Belinda is an accomplished finance leader and banking executive who has experience across multiple functions including management and financial accounting, treasury, credit and banking operations, taxation, governance and collections.

This session will cover: - How Belinda created opportunities at such a young age, to get to where she is now, including becoming CFO at the age of 28
