The panel:

Carmel Kostos has established capability in the areas of leadership development, career management, recruitment and selection, and facilitating change.

Carmel has studied extensively, gaining a Master of Education in Career Development, which led to widening her practice into academia. For the past 9 years she has taught a range of Human Resource Management subjects, initially with RMIT, then for 4 years with Melbourne Business School at The University of Melbourne, and more recently commencing as a Lecturer in Management with UQ Business School in Brisbane.

Her fascination with emerging research from neuroscience and how it might inform the relationship between the learner and the learning facilitator, led Carmel to commence a PhD in Management in 2014. In her research, she has been investigating how neuroscience findings might influence HRD practice in facilitating learning in organisations.
Linda Ray has pioneered the spread of the practical application of neuroscience to leadership and organisational development and for the past 11 years has witnessed first- hand how it makes a difference in how leaders and individuals work, live and interact positively with others.

In her quest to share this knowledge she developed Australia’s only nationally accredited Diploma of Neuroscience of Leadership and development of an Advanced Diploma of Neuroscience of Leadership.

Linda thrives on pushing the boundaries on outdated workplace practices and is constantly exploring new ways to make sense of the science to continue to build Wildly Wonderful Workplaces that inspire and engage staff and drive innovation and creativity.
Alison Cameron is a culture and leadership guide, educator and researcher and director of The Leadership Retreat and Adaptive Cultures.

Recognising that many traditional culture and change practises inhibited rather than enabled cultural evolution, Alison co-founded Adaptive Cultures, a growing global community of leaders and culture practitioners working with many of Australia and the world’s most influential organisations.

The Adaptive Cultures community supports the development of leaders and culture practitioners to be more effective in enabling cultural and organisational adaptation and evolution.
Peter Addison is a State HR Manager for Bunnings, the leading retailer of home improvement and outdoor living products in Australia and New Zealand and a major supplier to project builders, commercial tradespeople and the housing industry. Peter has enjoyed a lengthy leadership career in both an operational and HR capacity across numerous high profile retail brands in Australia and internationally.

Peter is currently responsible for managing in excess of 8,500 team members across Queensland.

Peter is passionate about delivering outstanding results, whilst at the same time ensuring a strong cultural identity. He believes that modern businesses increasingly require their leaders to apply high emotional intelligence and values-based decision making in addition to strong business acumen, to ensure success. Peter has been instrumental in developing a generation of future leaders across Bunnings who have the capacity to drive performance in a dynamic and demanding operating environment, from a strong cultural foundation.
