Pippa Hallas

Ella Baché is a respected skin care brand revered across the country. You may think you know its story, but there’s so much more to this brand than meets the eye.

Because it all started with one woman, a pot of wax and the decision to bare it all in the foyer of David Jones. Now, for the first time, CEO Pippa

Hallas opens up about the journey, legacy and lessons behind one of Australia's most iconic female led brands. The disruptions, the innovations, the mistakes and the risks - and what it really takes to successfully steer an 80 year old business into a radically new world.

In a world of constant change, ground breaking technology, of unprecedented transparency and unrivaled customer expectation, we need a new approach to leading our organisations and our teams.

One that marries the learnings of the past, with a clear vision of the future. One that embraces mistakes and then uses them to inform decisions. One that breaks the mould. It’s time to get bold. 

80 years after Madame Baché dared to wax her legs in one of Australia’s most loved stores - in a bid to get her products stocked - a lot has changed at Ella Baché. Yet some things stay the same. From the refusal to use retouching in campaigns, to the shunning of cosmetic procedures in clinics, nobody embodies ‘bold’ quite like the women of Ella Baché.

But it wasn’t easy, and nobody is perfect. Using the unvarnished truths of her grandmother’s early days in the cosmetics industry and stories from her own experience as a CEO of a 150 franchise business, this keynote will leave staff, leaders and franchise owners ready to tackle their next phase of growth a little braver and a whole lot bolder.

Speaking topics

In this frank and candid keynote Pippa Hallas, CEO shares her stories and powerful insights into how to adopt the philosophy of ‘BOLD MOVES’ in uncertain times. Including how to:

  • Adapt to a radically new digital and COVID altered world - without losing your values or vision
  • Utilise the best of technology and innovation to rise above the noise in your marketplace
  • Have the hard conversations with your teams and stakeholders
  • Change direction even when the tide seems against you
  • Put the customer at the heart of every decision
