What's it like being a female CEO in a male dominated industry? Jody is CEO of Rowe Advisory, a consultancy firm providing support to the oil, gas and mining industries with offices in London, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide, Australia.

Jody is also podcast host of Tough Talks discussing all aspects of energy transition with industry leaders and experts. Her chat on our podcast ranges from how and why Rowe advisory began to why compliance qualifies for the big bin of bullshit via some f**k ups (as part of the chat, not f**k ups in the podcast).

The word trepidatious also makes an unscheduled appearance.
