The Agile Executive: Embracing Career Risks and Rewards

Marianne Broadbent

Marianne Broadbent’s multiple careers, from high school teacher to global business executive, have been experienced alongside raising four children in a ‘guilt free environment’ and sustaining long term relationships. She provides sharp and informed insights through working with organisations and teams to build and sustain great talent.

Alongside sharing her personal experiences of taking career risks, making multiple choices and managing a ‘blended life’ in our new modern paradigm where careers aren’t as linear as they once were, and diversity and risks are required to achieve success. She complements this with the thoughts and words of 23 executives who willingly provide their personal and career perspectives on their own trade-offs and ‘getting on with it’.

These women include:


  • Company Directors Kathryn Fagg, Chris Gillies, Andrea Hull, Susan Oliver and Elizabeth Proust
  • Business executives and entrepreneurs Nina Anderson, Alisa Bowen (USA), Robin Kranich (USA)
  • Jane Sherlock, Elisabet Wreme, Alison Hardacre, and Lalitha Biddulph (Singapore)
  • Public and Education sector executives Glenys Beauchamp, Kate Carnell, Jane Den Hollander, and Jodie Evans
  • Not-for-Profit CEOs Sherene Devanesen, Christine Kilpatrick, and Lucinda Nolan
  • Emerging leaders Abigail Bradshaw, Rachel Dapiran, Katie Cromie, and Asa Lautenberg (Germany)


The Book is in three parts – Lead Yourself with Purpose, Lead Others with Resolve, and Lead with Insight from Others.

Not only is this book for the experienced executive but also has important advice for those embarking on a career.
