Well-known Gold Coast livewire, communications professional and women's leadership advocate Karen Phillips is like a human shot of adrenaline for any weary business woman (or man) out there. Founder of Women in Business Australia, the Women in Business Awards and the Gold Coast Women in Business Breakfast series (now in its 30th year), she's a master of motivation with a deep love of her hometown, the Gold Coast. In this wide-ranging podcast, we talk about developing an 'antifragile' mindset - where we don't just survive adversity and disruption, we are actually enhanced by it - and dig into related topics such as resilience, burnout, imposter syndrome, stretching out of your comfort zone, the importance of recognition for women in business, equity in the workplace and more.
