CEO at Fling
Cathryn has more than 30 years experience as a commercial lawyer, both in firms (she was the first female partner in a firm with a 100 year plus history) and in house (General Counsel positions include ASX listed Praemium where she was also a member of the board and company secretary). Cathryn's passion for creativity has informed and inspired a range of career and life choices - not all of which have lead to success in the traditional sense, but all of which have provided challenges, opportunities for ideation, and the discipline and resilience required to implement, test, and mature ideas into something real and tangible. Since 2012 Cathryn has been an adjunct at RMIT where she teaches subjects in both the JD (Contract Law, M&A, Tech & Law) and MBA programs (Design Thinking, Tech Strategy). Cathryn regularly presents and facilitates workshops in Australia and overseas designed to help business people draw on their creativity for problem solving, leadership and team development, while working with creative people to bring business skills to help them realise the value in the work they do.
