Global Change Maker
As Global Vice President of The Hunger Project, and previously CEO for The Hunger Project Australia, it has been Cathy Burke’s privilege over the last 2 decades to travel extensively across the villages of Africa and South Asia in her work of ending hunger. The women and men she has met have given her the most enduring lessons in life and leadership.
Cathy’s perspective on human potential is surprising and profound. She believes we have what it takes – right now – to heal our world. This is as relevant for a work culture, a family dynamic and personal change. If illiteracy, poverty, malnutrition are not a barrier to affecting visionary change, then what are we truly capable of? How can we connect across the world and support each other as leaders?
Cathy writes, speaks, and leads workshops globally on this.
Cathy has something unique and important to say. Her perspective, based on the unusual life she has led, is innovative and refreshing. Cathy has the ability to have everyone feel uplifted, inspired and engaged.
Cathy Burke's unique voice and insights on leadership will influence the way we think about change and culture for years to come.
Unlikely Leaders offers a new and deeply relevant perspective on leadership.
Cathy’s work over two decades with The Hunger Project has given her intimate access to grassroots leaders ending hunger in their villages. What has moved Cathy over the years have been tales of extraordinary courage and human brilliance that is so unexpected and all the more remarkable because it comes from people and regions where we think have not much to offer at all.
In this book you will learn about resilience from a non-literate woman who navigates ridicule and threats of violence to bring water to her village. You’ll discover how we can find our voice by learning from a woman who first had to discover her own power, and when she did, she got girls in school. These stories are captivating and moving, providing a roadmap for personal and social change.
