2013 Luminaries Scholarship Winner – Perth

2013 Luminaries Scholar, Natalie Wallace

Manager, Commercial WA & NT, Santos

Following a quest to “be better, do better and, in particular, help other people”, Natalie Wallace has excelled in her professional career working with SANTOS for the past nine years. With a diverse career, spanning more than 20 years, her experience has seen her take on a number of roles including process engineering, logistics and supply planning, marketing, commercial negotiations, business development and strategy development.

Natalie Wallace was the recipient of a behind closed doors (BCD) Perth Luminaries Scholarship in 2013, a scholarship which provides a 12-month fully funded BCD membership. An email from a friend encouraging her to apply for the opportunity resulted in a successful outcome.

At the time of her application Natalie had been appointed to her first significant leadership role in SANTOS – one of the leading independent oil and gas producers in the Asia-Pacific region – where she now leads a cross-functional development team.

Natalie was a part of the Perth BCD Luminaries membership, a peer group that offers female executives of the future the opportunity to further expand their leadership and management skills. Members engage in skill building and problem solving and progressed into more diverse problem solving whilst being supported by a strong network. Natalie said the membership was beneficial to “learn to declutter problems, learn safely and gain wisdom”.

When asked what piece of advice she would offer her younger self, given the chance, she said, “Just believe in yourself”.

BCD has awarded scholarships annually since 2012, with a value of more than $300,000 worth of memberships provided to women around Australia.
