On Thursday 18 February we were delighted to honour two incredible WA leaders at our first event of the year, the 2020 Leadership WA Alumni Awards.

WA Public Sector Commissioner Sharyn O’Neill was awarded as the 2020 Leadership WA Honorary Fellow, acknowledging her enduring support for Leadership WA, her commitment to the development of leaders across the public sector and her effort to steer WA through our COVID recovery.

And CEO of the Royal Flying Doctor Service (WA) Rebecca Tomkinson (Signature Leadership Program 2012) was named our Distinguished Fellow 2020. Nominated by peers, this Award recognises Alumni who are a graduate of our Signature or Rising Leadership Programs and who have made an outstanding and enduring contribution to the Western Australian community. Rebecca was a worthy recipient amongst a strong field of Alumni nominees.

Both Sharyn and Rebecca gave compelling insights into their own leadership journeys, offering advice and unique perspectives formed over their careers. Congratulations to both and thank you for sharing those words.
