The theme for the 2019 FEAL Forum is ‘Organisational Health: How to maintain a healthy organisation amidst change and growth’.

At the Fund Executive Forum dinner on Wednesday 6 March we are delighted to have Dianne McGrath as our guest speaker.

She is a Masters program lecturer, PhD researcher, biohacker, blogger, experimenter and director. Dianne has a special interest in sustainable food systems, something that will be critical in a completely new environment for human habitation.

We are pleased to announce our keynote speaker at the Fund Executive Forum on Thursday 7 March Matthew Tottenham, KPMG, Risk Strategy and Technology.

Prior to joining KPMG, Matt has had 25 years of strategic change experience in both industry and management consulting. He specialises in Risk Transformation and Investment Banking, overseeing change projects in New York, London, Hong Kong, Singapore and Sydney.
Matt’s most recent experience was as lead Principal for the APRA Prudential Inquiry into CBA, where he led the consulting team advising and supporting APRA (previous employer).

There will be a panel discussion on the challenges of maintaining a healthy organisation for large and fast growing operations with Debby Blakey, CEO, HESTA, Lorraine Berends, Non-Executive Director and Kate Mason, Group Director, People and Culture, Coca-Cola Amatil.

In the afternoon we will hear from Geoff Martin, Associate Professor of Strategy, Melbourne Business School and Katherine Teh, Managing Director and Founder of Futureye.

Geoff will speak on ‘The risks of an unhealthy organisation‘.
Geoff joined Melbourne Business School in 2012. As a strategy consultant and charted accountant, Geoff is actively involved in advising and consulting to Boards and Senior Management of numerous private and public institutions, in Australia and internationally, on issues ranging from strategic decision making, executive compensation, finance, risk and corporate governance.

Katherine will speak on  ‘How to retain a social Licence to operate amidst increasing regulatory and technological challenges‘.

Katherine Teh, former journalist and public policy specialist, is the founder of Futureye, leading social licence consultancy. Futureye provides innovative solutions for the development and management of public policy, risk communication, and strategic planning through the identification and management of ‘outrage’ – the underlying psychological factors that people use to build an intuitive sense of ‘risk’.

Futureye assists national and international organisations manage their internal culture, building capacity to competently handle the challenges of reputation in a fast-changing world where community expectations, rather than technical risks, play an ever more potent role in political and regulatory risk.
