Sydney MAD Monday 2019: Join us for a conversation all about Leadership – SOLD OUT

by MAD

Monday 4 November 2019 | 6:00 – 8:30pm
Elston Room, Carriageworks


As public interest in food grows, opportunities – and responsibilities – are emerging for cooks and eaters to lead the way in building a fair, healthy and sustainable world. How can we lead by example and push for bigger picture changes to the way we eat? What makes a good leader and where in food systems is effective leadership most urgently needed?

This MAD Monday will consider influence and explore the role of cooks and eaters in shaping the way we eat. 

Each guest on our panel brings insights from their work and how they practice or conceive of leadership – including leadership on social and climate issues, Indigenous leadership, and leadership in the workplace. From a conceptual exploration of leading from within to how we take action on issues we care about, this MAD Monday asks us to think more deeply about how leadership is understood, and how it can be redefined in response to a rapidly changing world.

Author, environmentalist, CEO of Environmental Leadership Australia and Board Director Farmers for Climate Action, Anna Rose

Head chef at Brisbane’s ARC Dining and Wine Bar, Alanna Sapwell
