Foster a culture that takes the fear out of change and innovation!

Maintaining high performance can be difficult with so much change in the workplace and around the world. How can you ensure your business structure, productivity, and culture not only survives, but thrives during change?

Join us at our Strategic HR Summit and hear Keir Hansen, Head of High Performance Netball NZ and Ryan Ghisi, General Manager of Global People Programs at Xero share their experiences.

Hear about how to:

  • Enable your organisation so it responds to change like a living, dynamic organism
  • Reframe project thinking to build shorter cycles for complex problems – divide big tasks into bite sized chunks for smaller teams to resolve
  • Create transparency and build greater trust and engagement through sharing business goals and the truth about company performance
  • Manage the person, not the outcome to enable change while balancing BAU within an individual and team capacity.


Ryan dives into design thinking for HR and people innovation and reveals how real-time snapshots of staff wants and needs are critical for productivity and development. He also covers why honest leadership, a shared vision and transparent communication plays a crucial role during periods of change.

Keir will share with you how to develop your middle managers into performance coaches that take charge of development, engagement and planning for their staff. He also reveals how to actively engage with your people leaders to help mitigate burnout with larger-than-life workloads and how to prioritise project tasks.

Drive high performance through great company culture, support your organisation and teams to reach new heights, and watch your business soar!
