Wayne spent 23 years serving his community; from rooky firefighter to experienced people manager, leader and incident commander, never failing to spot or grab an opportunity to help others think differently to make things better in the workplace. Often, against organisational norms, he has had to find fresh ways to engage his sceptical peers and his sometimes, stubborn senior leaders, in conversations that help make real and meaningful change happen and stick.
Un-phased by Organisational hierarchy and out dated protocols, Wayne fearlessly (yet gently) continues to pursue his relentless quest to create a different, better, more inspiring, happy and generous workplace for all – whatever sector, industry and profession. Wayne believes work can and should be fun, whether you’re on the frontline saving lives, working the reception desk, bar or café in a struggling, slightly shabby community centre or supporting a highly dedicated frontline of staff and volunteers saving lives at sea.
From Summer 2017 Wayne will be harnessing his 25 years experience and collaborating with other truly extraordinary people in ways that have so far not been possible. He will be growing his own exciting freelance engagement and communications partnership and opening up some truly unique and inspirational space to share the new collective wisdom.
