Jane is driven to support building positive organisations for sustainable business success. She believes every business is a human enterprise, and people and teams matter and are at the core of business sustainability.
She believes that businesses can and must support their people to flourish at work; this starts with leaders who consistently grow in their abilities – leadership is a journey,
Company culture must radiate what the company stands for, and the boundaries of behaviours – what values are alive, how are people developed and coached, what does innovation, inclusion psychological safety really mean in this organisation.
Jane has worked successfully in learning and development and business development roles for over 25 years. Her drive has always been in building a positive culture, building extraordinary leaders and high-performing and resilient teams where team members feel valued and able to contribute at their best.
She was a respected leader at ‘The Body Shop’ known for being pioneering in its ethical and values-based approach to doing business. The company did not invest in paid marketing and instead invested strongly in developing their people. Jane was the Learning and Development Manager for over a decade, delivering an expansive range of leadership, customer service, stress and energy management, emotional intelligence, productivity and communication programs.
Jane’s highlights here include receiving an Anita Award for her contribution to ‘training and her positive attitude’. She wrote several programs to support the company value ‘Activate Self Esteem’.
From 2004 she followed the research from the field of positive psychology and built wellbeing workshops for her direct reporting staff and for state-based events at The Body Shop. She aligned her own leadership and culture development to the research-backed theories and principles.
She enjoyed a significant role in their community outreach program – delivering wellbeing workshops at The Women’s Prison, Magill Detention Centre and in supporting many at-risk and minority community groups.
Jane worked internationally with PhotoCorporation who were global leaders in mass portraiture. The highlight being recruited to a National Training Managers Role in the Uk, in her late 20’s due to her success as a regional trainer and studio manager.
In a year in the UK, she supported 50+ studios with targeted training for leaders, photographic, sales and acquisition team members. The business improved the customer average of clients by 40%. There was a significant culture shift, and staff retention and morale elevated to an unprecedented level. Jane was invited back to the UK as the business held its success and was in a position to overtake a significant competitor. She again assisted with the transition and staff training through this period.
In her spare time:
Jane loves spending time with her family, her partner Gerard, Scarlett and Molly, and their many animals. Favourite holiday destinations are Port Vincent and Kangaroo Island.
She is originally from Maitland South Australia, a small country town and a farming family.
