Join former General Manager at the Commonwealth Bank and strategy expert, Nicolette Rubinsztein, as she shares practical business based decision-making tools for working mums from her new book, Not guilty, at Hurstville Library on Tuesday 18 October 2016.
Not guilty is the result of Nicolette applying the same strategic thinking she used in business to her plight as a guilt-ridden career mum navigating the work/life balance. At this talk, Nicolette will share her top strategies for women who want to raise a loving family and enjoy a successful career. Based on the McKinsey 7-S framework, working mums will learn tips on going part-time, how to keep their star status, how to get on the same page as their partner, curating their ‘childcare jigsaw’, the importance of outsourcing and how to have a good relationship with their boss.
Nicolette is an experienced wealth management executive, strategy expert and mother of three. An advocate for mothers and work/life balance, in 2014 she was named one of the top ten powerful part-time workers in Australia by Business Insider, and one of the top 31 by Women’s Agenda. Nicolette is a qualified actuary, holds an executive MBA from the Australian Graduate School of Management and served as a director on the Association of Superannuation Funds of Australia for eight years.
