We are pleased to invite you and your Year 10- 12 students to attend the annual International Women’s Day breakfast, kindly hosted by Fahan School.
The guest speaker is Ms Keryn Nylander.
Keryn is one of Tasmania’s most experienced advisors in strategic communications, media, public relations, marketing and brand development.
Tasmanian born and educated, Ms Nylander has worked in the Tasmanian media industry for three decades both as a communications professional and award-winning journalist. She is a former State political reporter for both print and electronic media before rising to be the Head of News for WIN Television Tasmania – the first female for the network in Australia. In the past decade, Keryn has been at the helm of her own strategic communications and public relations consultancy, Nylander Consulting, specialising in media and communications advice to business. Her expertise is in designing and implementing communications
strategies for a range of corporate, governmental and not-for-profit organisations in the energy, IT, construction, aged care, tourism, hospitality and manufacturing sectors. Government relations and lobbying, and community consultation and stakeholder engagement are also key to her skill set specifically working on some of the major controversial development proposals in Tasmania in recent times.
Keryn is currently a director of energy retailer Aurora Energy, and a director of Tasmanian customer-
owned financial institution Bank of Us, serving as chairman from 2009-2011 during the Global Financial Crisis. Keryn has also served as a director of the State’s peak wine body Wine Tasmania (2006-2014), a director of the Tasmanian Development Board (2001-2014), and a director and past Chairman of Fahan School (2008-2017). Keryn was appointed a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Company Directors in 2013.
