Dr Kirstin Ferguson is an Author, Activist, and Australian Corporate Heavy-Hitter from Brisbane Australia. She is Deputy Chair of the ABC and is an Adjunct Professor at the QUT School of Business and has previously been CEO of a global health and safety organisation.

Formerly an administration Officer in the Royal Australian Air Force after graduating Dux of her Air Force graduating class at the Australian Defence Force Academy – on graduation, Kirstin was posted to an F-111 Squadron at RAAF Base Amberley as an Administration Officer.

Kirstin also, quite famously – started the Twitter Hashtag #celebratingwomen. By profiling 757 extraordinary women Kirstin began to reframe the conversation around powerful women on that platform. She’s since co-written a book called Women Kind, which explores that adventure in greater detail which I thoroughly recommend you read. Kirstin and I recorded this at the Betoota Advocate studios, and I learned a valuable lesson that day.

If you’re ever meeting someone who’s ex-military, if you’re not ten minutes early, you’re five minutes late. I need to up my game.
