Vickie Kaminski


As SA Health Chief Executive Vickie Kaminski, arguably, has the most challenging and complex job in South Australia. 

Responsible for 'Transforming Health' and now, post-election, having to work to a new Government and Minister, her recent story is bound to be a very interesting one. 

With a successful executive career in Canada's health sector, we're also curious about how Vickie found her way to Adelaide and what she considers to be the secrets to a successful global career.

Vickie will complete her contract with SA Health later this year. How exactly do you plan a transition out from a fast-paced, high-pressure job like hers?

We can't wait to hear her full story in her own words.

Dr Fiona Kerr
Industry Professor, Neural and Systems Complexity, The University of Adelaide; Director, Kerr Consulting
Dr Fiona Kerr researches, speaks and consults on a range of topics including the neuroscience of human-human and human-technology interaction, neurogenesis, and how good leaders create organisations that flourish. Her interest in the science and power of human connectivity was sparked during her undergraduate degrees in psychology and anthropology, and developed over more than 25 years of working in a variety of sectors in Australia and overseas, including power generation, automotive manufacturing, defence, pharmaceuticals, state government, and creative companies including Cirque du Soleil.  
To investigate the patterns she had seen in flourishing companies over those years in both the public and private sector, Fiona undertook a PhD that combined the fields of neuroscience and complex systems engineering to study the ways in which good leaders can build adaptive organisations.
Following completion of her PhD, Fiona’s research has focussed on the neurophysiological impact of human interaction with each other, and with and through technology, and how it impacts fields as diverse as work, healthcare, defence, tech design, belonging and social capital. She is currently establishing an independent Institute to research and advise on building partnerships with AI and each other in an increasingly technologised world.
Dr. Ysabella Van Sebille
 South Australian Young Achiever of the year (2017) for Science and Technology.
Bella has won multiple awards and is widely recognised for her research that aims to make cancer treatment more tolerable for patients.
This extraordinary young woman has collaborated with leading researchers around the world and her research has led to clinical trials of new drug targets to minimise cancer treatment toxicities.
She also has a passion for promoting science education to both girls and underprivileged groups, and is working to change the way science is communicated and taught.
Ysabella is an ambassador for women in STEM, and works with groups including The Australian Refugee Association, The Indigenous Tutorial Assistance Program, and The STEMable project, among other science outreach programs.



If the May Opt In and Stand Out Forum is even half as good as the last one, you will want to secure your registration early.  It will sell-out quickly!
