Ruth McGowan OAM is an authority on political campaigning and gender equality. She is the author of Get Elected , the Australian campaign guide to winning political office at local, state, or federal level.
Starting her career as an agricultural scientist, Ruth worked for two decades across the public sector managing various STEM projects before standing for her local council and serving as Mayor. Her experience in public office in Local Government inspired Ruth to change her career focus and six years ago she trained as a Councillor Coach and accredited trainer in Political Intelligence.
Through her own consultancy business, Ruth now combines her two passions: advancing gender equality and politics. Ruth delivers Get Elected workshops throughout Australia for women interested in getting into 'big P, Politics' on how to successfully plan a winning political campaign. Through her Political Intelligence training, she supports women leaders to master the skills of political savvy and understand the art and science of positive politics.
We discuss on this podcast:
Today's guest is Sibon Schouten, CEO and Founder of Markd Global, a purpose-driven brand and marketing collective based in Sydney, Australia. Sibon believes purposeful leaders create purposeful companies that are more likely to pursue the triple bottom line - People, Planet, Profit, something she believes is critical to building trust and creating enduring brands, businesses, and societies.
Markd Global's unique approach has engaged clients across Australia, New Zealand, Switzerland, and Canada with plans to expand through a global platform that connects leaders and companies on purpose. Before Sibon founded Markd Global in 2019, she spent many years in marketing, leadership, and corporate roles for some of the world's largest multinational companies.
The highlight of her career was working for the CEO of Nestle Oceania to find growth opportunities for the business. Sibon has a very diverse background, born in a village in rural South Africa, educated in the UK, and now living with her family in Australia. Her hero is Nelson Mandela who grew up in a neighbouring village to her own.
