Culture Change Specialist
Organisational Psychologist … HR executive leading the shift to a more
growth-oriented and consumer-driven culture, that will fuel the company's next wave of expansion.


1.      What is culture?
2.      Why does culture matter?
3.      How do you change workplace culture?

In Siobhan’s own words:
I’m a culture change specialist with a vision to make workplaces better.
I have a track record of creating healthier, happier and more productive businesses across four
continents. My work has been featured as a case study at Harvard Business School by the
change management guru, Professor John Kotter.

I’m an Organisational Psychologist by background and spent the first decade of my career as a
management consultant advising leaders across Europe, Asia, the United States and Australia
about how to manage change.

Following this decade as a change advisor I decided I wanted some ‘skin in the game’. I
joined a series of large organisations as the senior executive in charge of change. In
these roles I rolled-up my sleeves and worked as a company ‘insider’ to successfully implement
transformational shifts and business turnarounds.
