It wasn’t until a colleague pointed out to her that she could do it, that she made the decision, and 100 days out from Ironman Western Australia, she dived into the world of swim, bike and run.

The 26-year-old’s list of career accomplishments (so far) is as lengthy as the special effects credits of a Star Wars movie. She was the youngest person to be named in Australia’s 100 Most Influential Women. She is the CEO of her own company, Emergent. She’s the Co-Chair of the UN’s Global Coalition of Young Entrepreneurs.

Deep breath, there’s more.

Recently she became the youngest ever female Director of an AFL Club when she was appointed to the Board of Port Adelaide Football Club. She delivered a Peace Charter to the Dalai Lama and addressed the G20′s Central Bank Governors and Finance Ministers, and has wined and dined with the likes of President Obama.

When Holly talks. You listen.

Whether she’s standing in front of thousands discussing intergenerational workforces, leadership and public policy outcomes, or she’s telling you that she did all of her training for an Ironman on a gym bike,

You listen.

She is one of the most impressive and inspiring women you’ll ever meet, and we’re excited to share her story with you.
