People Strategy Consultant and Keynote Speaker
An acknowledged and respected expert across people management and leadership, Russell is not your average people-person. He blends an engineer’s desire for knowledge, an inquisitive need for evidence and a belief that things can be better with an inspirational, passionate and charismatic style. He connects dots in informative and novel ways to challenge leaders to think differently about, and to take tangible actions to unlock, the potential and productivity of their most expensive asset, their people. Acting as a catalyst, he captivates people, motivating them and providing the impetus to change and transform, enabling them to move quicker and further than they previously thought possible.
