Rachael Fitzjohn

I am a people leader, practitioner and coach with a strong commitment to culture and capability. I have many years experience in Senior People Capability and HR Leader roles - both in large, complex organisations and in scaling organisations.

I am a strategic leader who has my sleeves firmly rolled up to combine empathy, innovation, and a commitment to employee development so that work cultures can exist where individuals thrive and the business is competitive and high performing.

I work with an employee experience mindset, and have implemented a variety of leadership, culture and people solutions that have strongly contributed organisational robustness and success.

I also have strong generalist experience and have responded to and successfully managed a variety of workplace challenges - both the ones you can plan for and those where you must respond well.

I am a trusted and pragmatic advisor and continue to support leaders and teams to be strong and genuine.
