About Andrea Clarke – Founder, CareerCEO & Author, ‘Future Fit’
A dedicated and dynamic communicator, Andrea’s scope of work has involved filing breaking news from Washington D.C. delivering humanitarian aid programs into Iraq and fighting to stop the genocide in Darfur. Navigating major career transitions, Andrea used these lessons to create ‘CareerCEO’ – a business that empowers people to prepare for the future of work.  The CareerCEO Emerging Leaders Program is routinely delivered into top ASX businesses including Bunning, Lendlease and Telstra.

In 2009, Andrea was hired to serve as Senior Communication Director for the Save Darfur Coalition – the largest grassroots advocacy movement in the world where she lead efforts to co-ordinate media coverage, partnerships and organisational branding to support campaign objectives. Among other initiatives, Andrea was behind an unprecedented outreach event between the State Department and the Sudan advocacy movement. In a live, online broadcast from the White House, the U.S. Special Envoy to Sudan answered questions from activists about the administration’s strategy to bring peace to the region.

Andrea has just launched a unique digital model specifically designed to create a connected learning community, with modules based around the award winning book, ‘Future Fit’: How to Stay Relevant & Competitive in the Future of Work’.
