Introducing KEYNOTE SPEAKERS....
Dr. Tim Baker

‘Creating a Culture of Conversation for Performance and Development’
Joining Toastmasters at 21 to overcome his fear of speaking in public, Tim Baker has come a long way since the early days of sweaty palms.

Dr Tim Baker is a specialist in organisational performance. He has a successful track record in transforming organisational capability through change programs and leadership capability development for 18 years. Organisational effectiveness is Tim’s forte.

He is a disruptive thinker, willing to challenge conventional HR practices and come up with practical, innovative solutions to real-world problems.
Jamie Getgood

‘Industry skill requirements for the future - Lessons learnt from the closure of Automotive Manufacturing’
Jamie is a Senior HR Leader with a proven track record of achievement across Generalist and Specialist HR roles in a number of large multinational organisations.

Jamie’s passion for people, the development and inclusion of his team and the success of the business is evident in the success he has achieved. He is collaborative and innovative and appropriately, and constructively challenges the status quo.

With GM Holden closing its manufacturing operations in Australia, he has taken leadership in the closure of the industry with a strong focus around change management and employee engagement principles. The key foundation of this support has been around the development of a best practice Transition Centre to support all employees in the auto industry receiving the support, advice and training to help them transition into new work.

Jamie started his career as a mechanical tradesman, which helped build a great foundation to his HR profession by developing a strong hands on approach, an ability to collect and analyse information and grasp highly technical issues.
