Simone Dossetor

“Find the opportunity to challenge yourself and look for things that are outside your comfort zone.”

A staunch advocate for Women in Leadership, Simone Dossetor discusses how we need to rethink leadership and why the insurance profession should be leading the actions in diversity and inclusion as well as climate change and environmental challenges.

She is of the opinion that there is no reason we should have a gender imbalance and that women, in particular, need to be lifelong learners with a growth mindset of challenging oneself.

Simone also speaks about difficult decisions in larger Organisations and the transparency required to communicate those messages to staff – and Simone should know as she presided over turbulent times in previous roles exacerbated by the fact that those were in the public environment.
