Suzanne Young


Chief Operating Officer
NRL


09:10 Breaking through in a Boys Own Culture

Working for the National Rugby League (NRL) is not a job for the faint-hearted. Like a lot of football codes it’s been a boys’ club, at times tarnished by alcohol, sex and drugs scandals that have ruined playing careers and sent sponsors investing their money elsewhere.

Suzanne grew up on a farm, striding the paddocks with her father and grandfather, and her sporting pedigree saw her named Australian Surf Lifesaver of the Year in 1996. The resilience demanded by the rigours of that sport has prepared her for tough board meetings, players behaving badly and the ensuing battles with the media.

In this session Suzanne will explore the leadership skills you need to develop to operate and lead in any organisation to ensure you get the best out of all of the stakeholders you work with.
