In our first three podcast episodes we’re taking the opportunity to celebrate International Women’s Day. The theme of this year’s IWD is “Breaking the Bias”, encouraging us to examine how bias is playing out in our communities, our workplaces, our schools, and universities – and how we can tackle it. 

Over three episodes in March we’re going to dive into these issues by speaking to a diverse range of amazing men and women in the SPP community to get their perspectives, and hopefully breaking down some stereotypes along the way.  

Episode 1: Putting the monster on the table with Amy Childs 

In our first episode SPP Principal Clara Yates speaks with Amy Childs – a business leader with some fascinating nuggets of insight to share. 

Amy recently joined Belong as their Chief Customer Officer and brings over 15 years’ experience in senior leadership positions across retail banking, utilities, and insurance. 

Amy was previously managing director of energy retailer Momentum energy for over 5 years, where she oversaw customer growth of 37 per cent. 

You’ll hear from Amy about how she has approached navigating her stellar career, how she’s dealt with feeling like a fraud, and her advice on running your own race.  

We’ll also find out what she means by “putting the monster on the table”.
