When talk isn't cheap: The life-affirming value of a difficult conversation

Katherine Loftus, SCMP (She/her)
Assistant Director Risk & Resilience, Dept of Justice & Community Services, Australia

With more than a decade immersed in communications strategy, driving key outcomes for global organisations, Australian media and public sector organisations, I influence change for those making the complex decisions that affect all Australians. As a leading globally certified strategic communications professional, I’ve built a career advising key decision makers who need to connect with, listen to, and positively influence individuals, communities and critics. I know from experience that by normalising the tough conversations we can influence change in public affairs. I'm on a mission to empower individuals, families and organisations to move past the fear of having difficult conversations.
