Barbara Cole

Barb is an authentic senior leader who draws upon two decades of experience in a variety of operational, project management and consulting roles across multiple industries including oil and gas; energy and renewable energy; telecommunications; education; and legal and professional services.

Her expertise lies in risk management, governance and legal and regulatory compliance. Most recently, Barb headed up Woodside Energy’s Regulatory and Legal Compliance discipline globally, reporting regularly to the CEO & Executive Team, and the Board’s Audit & Risk Committee. Barb loves helping people to develop so they may achieve their potential and is particularly interested in gender equality matters and the impact of subconscious bias generally.

Barb’s sons Louis and Sebastian adore attending Bold Park. She feels privileged to be on the Board of this progressive, wonderful, free-thinking Community School and is delighted to be able to contribute in some small way to ‘intentionally challenging the status quo of education and reimagining what school can be’.


“Creativity is putting your imagination to work, and it's produced the most extraordinary results in human culture.”
