Gillian Brookes

I'm an experienced Head of HR and run my own business to drive a more flexible future of work. I love getting organisations set up so that people can do the best work of their lives.

I've held several senior leadership roles in HR both in New Zealand and the UK. I'm a chartered member of HRNZ and was a finalist for the HR Professional of the year award 2022.

My focus is on designing people practice that fits the organisation's needs, so they're free to do the best work of their lives.
