SCU Online Presents: The Future is Human with Bella Zanesco

We are excited to invite you (and your friends, colleagues) to our upcoming breakfast, featuring guest speaker and SCU’s 2018 Vice Chancellor’s Alumnus of the Year, Bella Zanesco.


Keynote – The Future is Human

Bella Zanesco brings a depth of experience from 20 years’ operating at the top of international business, the arts and sport. In this keynote, Bella unpacks what Fully Expressed Leadership is: the modern-day approach to nurturing engaged, inspiring and sustainably high performing leaders. She explores the need for a new breed of leader — people who inspire the imagination by working in harmony with their own humanity; leaders who are unafraid to bring their whole selves to work; leaders who bring the same care and compassion to themselves as they do to those around them.

About the speaker – Bella Zanesco

Bella Zanesco is a creative connoisseur of health, high performance and full self-expression.


She inspires action and walks her talk, whether it be from the stage, in her book “Smart Girls Screw Up Too”, on national TV, or as the go-to advisor for executives in life or career transition. Bella’s no-nonsense approach, backed by the Global Wellbeing Women’s Report she founded, gives people the tools and confidence they need to become Fully Expressed leaders in their own lives, celebrate their ‘Screw Ups’, bring their ‘A-game’ to work and exceed their potential.

Bella has been featured on Channel 7, The ABC,, The Australian Financial Review, Business Chicks and on national radio. Her debut book “Smart Girls Screw Up Too – The no-nonsense guide to creating the life you want” is the best-selling leadership book in 2018 by an Australian author of any gender and has outsold all global female thought leaders including Sheryl Sandberg’s “Lean In” and Sophia Amoruso’s “Girl Boss”.

Bella is a world champion sailor, holds a British Kiteboarding Record and has been responsible for $5billion in new corporate revenues through health and wellness propositions, mergers and acquisitions and employee programs. She’s consulted for Google, Commonwealth Bank, Macquarie Bank, Pepsi Co and AMP among others. She was named The UK Top 50 Young Changemaker for her work coaching at-risk high performers in organisations such as Deloitte, Ernst & Young, HSBC, Google, JP Morgan, KPMG, and Microsoft.
