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 is NeuroCapability’s Chief Translator of the science into the ‘so what does that mean’.

She has pioneered the spread of the practical application of neuroscience to leadership, education 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 which has been delivered to students around the globe and the success of this program inspired her to continue this path with the development of an Advanced Diploma of Neuroscience of Leadership.

Linda loves pushing the boundaries on outdated workplace practices and is constantly exploring new ways to make sense of the science to continue to build Wildly Wonderful Workplaces that inspire and engage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.
