Challenging the Status Quo - A Life Journey

For Leaders in Portfolio Careers
Staying engaged with the business and wider community

Our Next Circle (ONC) is the Circle’s latest platform for Leaders and Directors who have moved or transitioned from full-time employment into a Portfolio Career.
The objective is to build a forum that offers shared experiences, ideas and knowledge transfer for those who wish to stay engaged in the business and wider community.
ONC has been developed to share professional opportunities such as directorships, consulting and short-term projects; provide continuous learning; and offer opportunities to ‘give back’.

Our Next Circle presents an off-the-record conversation with Wendy McCarthy AO, Life Fellow AICD, Mentor, Educator, Company Advisor. 

We are proud to feature one of Australia’s most visionary business leaders who has continually pushed the boundaries of education, family planning, human rights, public health, overseas aid and development, conservation, heritage, media and the Arts.

In a distinguished career, Wendy has challenged the corporate, political and human rights norms of Australia – taking leadership positions and building the momentum of change. She was a founding member of the Women’s Electoral Lobby and continues to be an advocate for women.
