- The new cabinet
- Dealing with a Labor government
- The prime minister
- Handling a large cross-bench
- The big policy changes to expect this term
When it comes to female leaders in corporate Australia, you would be hard-pressed to find someone with a resume as accomplished and diverse as the brilliant Jo Scard. Jo is the founder and CEO of Fifty Acres, Australia’s leading for-purpose communications and engagement agency for NGOs, peak bodies, social enterprises, industry associations, not-for-profits and government agencies.
Following her early career as a political adviser and journalist working in the UK and Australia with ITV, Associated Press, Seven, SBS, ABC, the British Labour Party and Fairfax, Jo moved into a consulting role at leading public affairs agency Gavin Anderson, before becoming a senior adviser to the Rudd and Gillard Governments.
In 2010, Jo established Australia’s first virtually operated strategic communications and engagement agency, with the vision to collaborate strictly with the for-good and not-for-profit sector. Jo prioritises a flexible working structure, and leads a team of ambitious women paving the way in the communications space.
