About Holly Ransom

Holly Ransom is the by-product of mixing systems thinking and pragmatism together, and leaving it to bake in the Australian sun. Holly is renowned for generating innovative solutions to complex problems for corporations, governments and non-profit organisations, and for coaching and professionally mentoring leaders of all generations around the world.

Before she started Emergent, Holly’s corporate career has involved working as Chief of Staff to NAB Wealth Chief Executive Andrew Hagger and for Rio Tinto CEO Sam Walsh, leading key organisational strategy and business improvement initiatives and integrated corporate affairs projects. She also worked in a variety of leadership positions with more than twenty global non-profit organisations and (begrudgingly) completed a Law degree and BA (Economics). In 2014, the Australian Prime Minister appointed Holly to chair the G20 Youth Summit, resulting in the first summit to secure its policy demands from G20 leaders. Holly also co-authored the strategy paper on youth entrepreneurship and unemployment for the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goal agenda.

Emergent has worked with the likes of Microsoft, the Australian Institute of Sport, CPA, INPEX, Conoco Phillips, DFAT- and many more.
