MDS: In what ways does International Women’s Day make you feel empowered?

KELLIE: This time of year makes me pause and consider what an incredible life and career I have had so far. I should do it more often but life gets hectic! I also make an effort to get to as many IWD events as possible as I love being surrounded by incredible women and hearing their stories is always empowering. The world has changed so much in my lifetime but there is still so much more to do in regards to so many areas when it comes to female equality, health and safety.

MDS: What do you think it means to be a female leader in today’s society?

KELLIE: For me personally, it's to lead how I would like to be led. I have seen some terrible leadership over my career and I have met and worked with some incredible leaders.Those I admire the most treat everyone in the room, no matter what their role, with equal respect.

MDS: What is one piece of leadership advice you have learnt on your journey, that you wish to pass on to other women?

KELLIE: You learn something every step of the way. My own advice. A terrible career turn can teach you just as much as a great career decision. Try and not live with regret, sometimes it is hard but you can be empowered by difficult career experiences. I know because I've had them! 

MDS: What is one achievement you are most proud of? 

KELLIE: To be Editor-in-Chief of Harper's BAZAAR Australia was a career goal I never thought I'd achieve, mainly because no one ever leaves those jobs. But I achieved that goal and did move on after six years at the helm. And today I am incredibly proud that I left the dream job to take a huge risk and launch a consultancy business. I'm also going to say being a Mum to two incredible girls. I've been a working mum their entire lives and have missed some important milestones and events as I did travel a lot but I have never regretted my choices. See the answer to question 3!

MDS: How do you deal with failure or disappointment?

KELLIE: I swear a lot. I've been told I can be a hot head. Then hopefully the rational side of my brain clicks in. As I get older and wiser I know it isn't the end of the world and that you have to be able to move on and learn from your mistakes. It's such a cliche but it is so true.

MDS: Which colour from MAISON de SABRÉ’s collection best represents you? Why?

KELLIE: Sky Blue. I'm a blue girl through and through and love a light blue. It's a happy colour and says sea and sky to me.

MDS: What do you think it means to ‘Make Your Mark’ in the world, and how are you doing this?

KELLIE: Giving back to your community is how I like to Make My Mark. I have been active on not-for-profit boards for quite some time and that work is incredibly important to me and no matter how busy I am I always find time. I have raised almost $2 million for the Royal Hospital for Women Foundation and I currently sit on the boards of the Melbourne Fashion Festival, the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences and the St George Foundation. All are incredible institutions doing important and inspiring work

MDS: In what ways does IWD make you feel empowered?

AMBER: Taking the time to reflect on how far we have come as a society and to focus on how far we have yet to go is incredibly important, and IWD serves as a day to collectively take action.


MDS: What do you think it means to be a female leader in today’s society?

AMBER: It means using the privilege we do have to continue to dismantle harmful societal and legislative rules that disproportionately impact women and non binary folks of color.


MDS: What is one piece of leadership advice you have learnt on your journey, that you wish to pass on to other women?

AMBER: Listen to others and their stories.


MDS: What is one achievement you are most proud of?

AMBER: Being able to work for myself as an artist.



MDS: How do you deal with failure or disappointment?

AMBER: Know that just like success, this too will pass.

MDS: Which colour from MAISON de SABRE’s Collection best represents you and why? 

AMBER: I’d say Emerald Green; it has been a color I’ve gravitated towards in my recent paintings.

MDS: What do you think it means to ‘Make Your Mark’ in the world, and how are you doing this?

AMBER: Sharing the artwork I make that means so much to me!
