A good strategy is nothing until it is executed. People execute strategy, people design products and services and people deliver them.
It is the environment in which people work – the organisation’s culture – that allows them to be their best.
IAG, Yum! Brands, Sportsbet and Human Synergistics will explore the role Culture and Leadership play in giving organisations the edge. The speakers will discuss how to challenge conventional wisdom and build mindsets around the role of culture in supporting business growth, risk management and long-term sustainability.

Article : Guiding Qantas through turbulence
In February 2014, on the back of half-year pre-tax losses totalling $252 million, Qantas announced that it would be implementing a ‘transformation program’, with 5000 full-time roles to be cut over the next three years.
The mandate was never going to be an easy instruction to deliver and manage. HRM online talks to executive manager of human resources, Karen Lonergan FAHRI, about guiding the airline through a period of immense change.
AHRI chairman Peter Wilson sat down with management guru Dave Ulrich, a university professor, author and management coach to talk about the state of HR globally and how to create effective leaders.
A highly intelligent and creative IT design expert working for a global company in a team spanning four continents, was suffering burn-out.
A university business department managing $3 billion in asset replacement values and $500 million a year in projects was facing significant criticism from clients. Service to clients and the quality of team work within the business needed to improve.
Feature: Mentoring Up
By Christopher Niesche, Human Resources Media
Karen Delvin, founder and managing director of boutique business consultancy Bridges, says being ‘present’ and open to possibilities produces the best results.

This week, Oxfam published a report finding that at the current rate of decline, the world will be waiting another 75 years before closing the gender pay gap.
The report has got people talking, with news articles and opinion pieces published across almost all our major news outlets. Looking at it from the perspective of 75 years is clever. It’s a figure people can remember and recite. An easy grab that highlights just how much work there is to do. It’ll be a figure that’s continually quoted in the months to come, much like the finding from the Grattan Institute that estimates a six per cent increase in women’s workforce participation would see Australia’s GDP increase by $25 billion.
