Holly Ransom joins headline speakers at Australian Cotton Conference

Social entrepreneur and CEO Holly Ransom has joined the impressive list of speakers for the 2016 Australian Cotton Conference, to be held August 2-4 on the Gold Coast.

Ms Ransom is the CEO of Emergent, which specialises in the development of high performing intergenerational workforces, leadership and social outcomes. She has an impressive resumé – in 2014 she was appointed by the Prime Minister to chair the G20 Youth Summit; she was the youngest person to be named in Australia’s ‘100 Most Influential Women’ list, in 2012; and was the world’s youngest-ever Rotary president.

Currently Ms Ransom is CEO of Emergent, a company known for generating innovative solutions to complex multi-stakeholder problems for corporations, governments and non-profit organisations, and for coaching and professionally mentoring leaders of all generations around the world.

Cotton Australia CEO, Adam Kay, says Ms Ransom’s background makes her ideally suited to speak at the Conference on topics of great importance to cotton growers and the industry. Her presentation is titled ‘Leadership & Workforce Development Strategies for Inter-Generational Change’.

“Holly has achieved a lot for someone so young, and she is a fantastic addition to our line-up of speakers for the 2016 Australian Cotton Conference,” Mr Kay says.

“She will speak on two subjects of great importance to growers – leading for inter-generational change, and unlocking the leadership development potential of Millennials.”

“Succession planning is a hot topic amongst cotton growers and so is the industry’s workforce and education strategy, which Cotton Australia is investing a lot in, which makes Holly’s speech highly relevant to our industry.”
