Two local public sector leaders have taken top honours at a Leadership WA ceremony last night, which acknowledge those who have shown exceptional levels of leadership and community contribution.

Frank Daly, acting chief executive of the Child and Adolescent Health Service, took out the 'distinguished fellow’ award for 2015, while the head of Edith Cowan University’s Centre for Indigenous Education and Research, Colleen Hayward, received the ‘honorary fellow’ award.

Leadership WA chairman Michael McNulty said the two winners both embodied the core values of Leadership WA – ethical leadership, respect for diversity, accepting and guiding change, and community service.

“Frank is responsible for leading the $1.2 billion Perth Children’s Hospital project which is under way and due to open next year,” Mr McNulty said.

It is also my privilege to name former Leadership WA board member Colleen as this year’s honorary fellow.

“Colleen is an exceptional woman and has been formally recognised many times for her long-standing work on behalf of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities across Australia.”

Mr Daly said great things could happen when personal values aligned to the values of the team you are leading.

“Bring energy and an open mind to problems. Think about people. Be prepared to be courageous and take risks, there are times when resilience is important,” he said.
