Keynote Speakers

Annabel Crabb
We are delighted to announce Annabel Crabb as our keynote speaker at the FEAL National Conference 2022.

FEAL Keynote Speaker Annabel Crabb
Annabel Crabb is one of Australia’s most beloved journalists. She is an ABC writer and presenter who has covered Australian politics for 20 years but also is nationally well-known for her insightful and humorous analysis on gender and current affairs. She is the creator and presenter of Ms Represented, which is a raw and honest account of politics from the female perspective.

Over her career in journalism Annabel has worked as a political correspondent for The Advertiser, The Age and the Sydney Morning Herald, as Europe correspondent for Fairfax’s Sunday titles and written a popular syndicated newspaper column on politics and social affairs. She is the author of The Wife Drought, a humorous and best-selling account of women and work in Australia. Her Quarterly Essay about Malcolm Turnbull, Stop At Nothing, won Annabel a Walkley Award and was expanded and republished as a book in 2016.

Aminata Conteh-Biger
We are also pleased to announce Aminata Conteh-Biger as our keynote speaker at the FEAL Members’ Dinner.

FEAL Keynote Speaker Aminata Conteh-Biger
Growing up in Freetown in civil war-ravaged Sierra Leone, Aminata enjoyed a relatively charmed childhood until 1999 when a devastating consequence of the civil war changed things forever. Rebel forces from the Revolutionary United Front stormed Freetown and the Contehs’ home, kidnapping 18-year old Aminata.

Held captive for months, Aminata was finally freed as part of a negotiated prisoner exchange. However, not long after her release, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) recognised that one of Amanita’s captors posed a continued and serious threat to her safety. With the support of the UNHCR, Aminata became one of the very first Sierra Leonean refugee women to be settled in Australia.

After the difficult birth of her daughter Sarafina, Aminata started the Aminata Maternal Foundation (AMF). Her goal is to increase the Australian public’s awareness of Sierra Leone, its challenges and its extraordinary beauty, and boost fundraising in order to expand a maternity hospital in Sierra Leone in 2021.

Kat Dunn
We look forward to hearing from Kat Dunn at the FEAL National Conference.

FEAL Keynote Speaker Kat Dunn
Kat Dunn is a humanitarian capitalist with a passion for reimagining the way we live, work and connect in an increasingly decentralised world.

Born in Manila, raised in country WA, and based in Sydney, she has lived experience within rural, developing world and inner-city communities. She is the founder of advisory firm aviatrix which advises web3 creators on designing communities to realise a shared purpose, align with the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the UN Declaration of Human Rights.

Kat has a background in traditional finance, social entrepreneurship and cultural change, in particular corporate and funds law, impact investment, startups and poverty alleviation. In 2018, she was appointed the CEO of Grameen Australia, a microfinance organisation inspired by the work of Nobel Peace Prize Winner, founder of Grameen Bank, Professor Muhammad Yunus.

Kat has held numerous for-purpose directorships including with Food Frontier (an alternative protein industry think tank), Grameen Australia, Women for Election and is a founding member of the Australian DeFi Association. She believes web3 has the power to reimagine the way humans relate to one another and the planet.

Kat is the creator of F-OFF: Fear of Failure Forum a movement to say F-OFF to your fear of failure and grow your potential and coaches CEOs and leaders on connecting profit with purpose. When she isn’t talking about system redesign to anyone who will listen, she loves running, rock climbing and flying planes – thus the inspiration for aviatrix (the female pilot) which symbolises pioneering people and technologies.
