How to upskill and reskill in this new learning world

Stacey Edmonds:

Stacey is a Global People, Digital and Talent Technology Leader with a broad experience base that includes big four and boutique consulting, academia and senior management roles across diverse industries and cultures.

Her background in Psychology, Sociology, Education, IT, HR Tech and Digital Production means she can lead and drive collaboration and innovation across multi-disciplinary teams, adding measurable value when enabling the ‘joining of the dots’ in the future of work, talent, skills and capability in a digital world.

Stacey is experienced in ‘all things human’ including Organisational Design, Talent and Performance, Employee Value Proposition and Engagement, Learning, Leadership, Change, Communication, Risk Management and implementing personalised, adaptive and gamified people technologies.

The past few years have been an exciting career journey for Stacey. In 2015 she launched her own business Lively, a Learning Agency and that year she was asked to partner with Deloitte to Deliver the People Leader Experience for Transport for NSW. Following that successful project, Transport for NSW approached her for the role of Director of Design and Delivery, so she made the hard but exciting decision to close Lively and join TfNSW. At the beginning of 2018 Deloitte invited her to lead the inaugural Australian Learning Solutions practice, responsible for providing a one-stop-shop capability strategy, technology and experience.

Stacey loves building and leading world-class multi-disciplinary teams and ecosystems. She is inspired by the potential for Edtech to transform our future workforce and education and therefore our society.

In other news – she is beginning her career in youth work and teaching, alongside her focus on building an engaged future ready workforce. She is on a mission to democratise learning, enabling all people, regardless of their socio-economic background, equal opportunity to reach their life goals.

Stacey is also an award-winning industry keynote speaker and judge for multiple awards including The International Business Awards and The New York Festivals Television and Film Awards.

She loves the arts and has a professional background in performing and film-making.
