Pro Bono names the 25 most influential in the Social Sector
Pro Bono Australia has released their Impact 25 for 2015, the most influential people in the Australian Not for Profit sector.
Rosie Batty, Australian of the Year and domestic violence campaigner, has taken the top place on the list after over 13,000 votes were counted.
Other notable Australians who made the list include World Vision CEO Tim Costello, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, CEO and founder of the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre Kon Karapanagiotidis AOM.
OKP’s own director Julie Johnson was listed among the top 25, in recognition of her career contributions to the sector.
After a highly successful career in sports management and sponsorship, Julie migrated to the business end of social change where she pioneered several not for profit marketing and advertising campaigns. She was the driving force behind Red Nose Day, a ground-breaking campaign which triggered a new direction for fundraising in Australia.
In 2000, Julie was awarded the Telstra Young Business Woman of the Year for her passion, courage and achievement. Today, Julie leads team OKP in the provision of strategic counsel and professional services to the education sector, philanthropists and businesses.
