We're Talking About Decisions

In particular making the hard decision to take the risky path rather than the comfortable one. And I can’t think of anyone better to join me in this conversation than Kendra Banks, Managing Director at Seek Ltd.

I was fortunate to work with Kendra back in 2019 and hear some of her journey and it really is a journey of choosing the right path in the face of resistance.How did she do it? And how has it shaped the kind of leader she is now? I give her a call to find out.

Kendra leads SEEK’s employment and learning businesses across the Australia and New Zealand markets, encompassing SEEK, SEEK Learning and Career Services, SEEK Business, Grad Connection and SEEK Volunteer.

Prior to SEEK, Kendra held a series of senior marketing and commercial roles within the retail sector, including at Coles in Australia and Tesco in the UK. Kendra commenced her career in strategy as a consultant with McKinsey & Company.

Kendra holds a Masters in European Politics at the College of Europe, where she was a Fulbright scholarship recipient. Prior to this, Kendra completed a Bachelor of Economics and Mathematics at Yale University.
