The panel:

Andrew Gerkens is passionate about building a strategic and agile Organisational Development & Learning function that delivers impact and value through stakeholder engagement and holistic performance solutions.

Andrew's experience in Organisational Performance & Development has been gained through development of geographically dispersed teams and organisations.

Much of his focus has been on workplace and continuous learning, using the 70:20:10 framework to build and share knowledge at the speed of business, to develop and sustain capability and performance.
Teresa Collis is curious, insightful and passionate about creating organisational cultures that help people thrive.

Her experience includes various leadership and culture roles at Bayer and Siemens in Australia and Germany, and in her current role as Global Head of Recruitment Marketing & Competency Development at Siemens she engages with global and regional leaders to support adaptive transformations across Talent Acquisition and other business functions into the future.

Teresa also plays a key role in nurturing and supporting the growing Adaptive Cultures Community.
Lena Ross is an experienced change consultant with a reputation for valuable content creation, workshop facilitation and speaking at conferences and events.

Lena has made a significant contribution to the change management profession.
Since establishing her Melbourne-based consulting practice in 2016, #changehacks , Lena has been invited to share her expertise as a guest blogger on thought leadership sites such as Lean Change Management and Future of Work Hub.

Lena’s work draws on the latest thinking in change management from areas such as design thinking, future of work, hardwired human behaviour and agile mindset and approaches.

Her experience is complemented by her Master of Business Administration (MBA) qualification, and she is able to apply sound academic and business discipline to the development of practical and innovative solutions.
Simon Fieldhouse is a passionate leader of change and transformation with exposure across finance, insurance and utilities in blue and white collar environments.

He has evolved his approaches to facilitating change to focus on the inner change journey of recipients, in parallel with the technical aspects of people change.

His current role as Head of Change and Transformation for Group Operations at AGL is a real time experiment on managing change adaptively, rather than technically.
