Christine Nixon: on Leadership

Posted by on September 25th, 2017 under

The Disruptive Business Network is honoured to host Christine Nixon at our next event.

To us Melbourne natives, Christine is no stranger. She is the former Chief Commissioner of Victoria Police (the first woman to hold that position anywhere in Australia). As a leader she has been on the forefront when it comes to leading through uncertainty or ‘disruptive change’. She rose to the top of a male dominated culture and led a staff of 14,000 through some pretty extreme circumstances. Her particular focus during her term was improving policing for those groups that were traditionally neglected such as juveniles and victims and survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault.
