Our On the Couch sessions are unmissable for anyone wanting personal insights from our public sector leaders on what makes them tick. 

Each informal interview spotlights a different public sector leader, exploring the person behind the role, their influences and priorities, and their insights into the future of the public sector. 


Our special guest for the 27th On the Couch event is Kiersten Fishburn, who was appointed as Deputy Secretary, Cities & Active Transport at Transport for NSW in December 2021.

Kiersten Fishburn has led state, local government and community sector organisations.  As well as reflecting on the choices and the influences that have shaped her career, this discussion will explore the relationship between the state and local government sectors and their perspectives on the policy priorities facing NSW. 

Kiersten will be in conversation with Natalie Micarone, Co-Founder and Director of Bendelta. Natalie is a practice area expert in Strategy and Organisational Alignment, working with the Boards and senior executive teams of many of Australia’s leading organisations to create transformational results. Natalie is also a Certified Master Coach with the Behavioural Coaching Institute.
