⚡️Presentation Description⚡️

There are moments when it feels as though a business or organization has 📉 hit a dead-end. Little progress seems to be made, and everyone is feeling 🙇‍♂️ disgruntled. This can be a difficult time to go through, and it’s often hard to know where to turn. However, there are ways to resurrect and rebuild an organization if things seem to be falling apart.

Tracey will be speaking on creating and sustaining a 💪 strong, healthy and resilient organization. She will share her experience and lessons learned while 📈resurrecting and rebuilding an organization. 🗣 Tracey Watters is an experienced Chief Executive with a successful track record of resurrecting and rebuilding vision driven organisations reliant on philanthropy, fundraising and charitable giving into variably funded, sustainable, publicly and professionally accountable service providers achieving high levels of member, consumer, staff and funder satisfaction.

Her first executive position was CEO of a small community hospice in New Zealand – 1996-2009 and following a move to South Australia in April 2009, Tracey was appointed CEO of Palliative Care South Australia – 2010 – 2019. Under Tracey’s leadership both organisations experienced a shift from rather precarious financial positions 3 months operational reserves to million-dollar balance sheets by supporting stakeholders of all types – government, service providers, communities, and consumers to work together to achieve vision and mission thereby improving organisational credibility and reputation.

Tracey will discuss the ♟ strategies employed to inspire others to join in the transformation efforts towards holistically strong organisations capable of 🏆 operational and financial excellence using examples from both these organisations. Tracey is currently General Manager of Technology for Ageing and Disability SA recruited to the role at a time of significant change – the loss of state government funding in 2018, and the rise of the NDIS. A new challenge already starting to experience glimpses of organisational improvement. 🍳 Attend this presentation by Tracey and learn the secrets of successful leadership so that you can lead your organization with confidence and conviction! 🔥
