About AJ

Workplace humanist and futurist, AJ is on a mission to help leaders to grow personally and professionally so they can become the brave new leaders of the future, one that balances people, planet, profit and purpose.

Before founding several companies, AJ worked as Director for the government work health and safety regulator, WorkCover NSW. During her tenure, she changed the way WorkCover spoke to and built relationships with its stakeholders. She was responsible for changing the focus and perception of WorkCover brand as being the “enforcer” to focusing on the importance of working safely for the sake of going home to family and friends.

Today she uses her Masters training in leadership and communication coupled with over 15 years leading and managing teams and 10 years consulting to public and private companies to provide vital insight into human behaviour, brand and organisational change. She believes it is impossible to make sustainable change in an organisation without a corresponding change in the leader's beliefs, behaviour and philosophy. Her approach therefore is to combine leadership development, personal growth and human potential with market insights into future of work globally.

A seven times published author, she speaks regularly at conferences across Australia, New Zealand and the US on the inherent power of uniqueness, purposeful leadership and the future of work. As a practicing servant leader, she is generous with her time – she is a founding board member of the Got Your Back Sista, the Founder and Chair of the Professional Communicators Network and the Co-Founder of Human Power.
