What is the thriving Workplace?
Come and join this brave community of Australia’s most progressive Executives and Leaders dedicated to building high energy, high performing cultures where individuals, teams and business truly thrive.
The ‘future of work’ we’ve all been talking about is here. Our people are demanding next level flexibility and at the same time craving a culture in which they feel like they belong and offers wellbeing by design. Externally, customers and society are demanding that organisations put ethics and social impact at the fore – creating a platform for greater wellbeing that extends far beyond the organisation.
But are we really ready?
A BIG shift needs to take place. And WE are the leaders that will have the courage to make it happen.
This year’s Thriving Workplace gathering in Sydney, 28-29 May, will empower radical transformation through courageous conversations, insightful ideas, all encapsulated in an environment that will energise and inspire. It will be more deep and profound than ever before.
Our research with business leaders across Australia uncovered 5 key areas for thriving in this next decade. These are the 5 pillars lead the discussion for May:
Intentional, Courageous Leadership
Inclusive Cultures of Belonging that Embrace the Whole Person
Ethical Business for Social Impact
Next Level Flexible Working & Job Crafting
Individualised Wellbeing Woven into the Organisation’s Design
4 Day Week Architect,
4 Day Week – Global & Perpetual Guardian
“Our ‘4 day week’ trial two years on. Why the 5-day work week has proven globally to be outdated and no longer fit for purpose.”
Always More to the Story
“My lived experience supporting the love of my life, Craig Hudson – MD Xero, with mental ill health. Your own resilience and wellbeing is vitally important too!”
Head of Leadership & Engagement,
Coca Cola Amatil
“Be more human! Why engagement + wellbeing = stronger, healthier, happier people “
Engineering Group Manager,
“The power of community inspired me with dreams of what a thriving workplace can be. How I acted on these dreams for true transformation in my team!”
“Engaging with some people is like trying to smell the colour nine. How my experience with a toxic workplace ultimately shaped my career and my leadership style in ways I could never have imagined!”
Senior Executive – People & Culture,
“How leading edge domestic violence policies at Medibank are an important step in offering safe, respectful and supportive work environments”
Head of Employee Experience,
“What I learned about daring greatly! Why taking a career break to focus on my family has empowered myself, my family and my team to thrive.”
Head of Change,
“As leaders we are so much more than our work! Finding common ground in our challenges allows us to form a network to fall back on when change comes our way. “
“Why identity, connection to country, kinship and spirituality, ground me, inspire me and push me as a leader – and they can for you too!”
Disability Inclusion Manager,
Sydney Compensation Specialists
“Some things in life you simply cannot prepare for. How my family and I coped with the violent stabbing of my husband Detective John Breda. And how two years on we’re thriving.”
“The 4 day week didn’t work for us! But by collaborating as peers rather than leaders and followers, we’re unlocking potential in other ways and creating meaningful impact in the areas we collectively care about.”
Dr Liz Shoesmith
CEO & Founder,
The Inclusive Organisation Group
“Discover your reason for inclusion and how you can accomodate the needs of all to create an organisation where all people can truly thrive.”
The Inclusive Foundation
“I’m not here to just get people with a disability included – I’m here to smash the stereotype ‘out of the park’ so you realise you’re seriously missing out by not including us”
Founder & CEO,
“When people are granted the freedom to be flexible, they feel more empowered, engaged and stimulated at work. Freedom and trust contribute to pride in the organisation, and to a generally healthier business culture.”
Business Leader & Advocate,
Health & Wellbeing
“Join me for meditation sessions during the event that will enhance your clarity, energy and success”

The Thriving Workplace Manifesto is a written representation of our community, providing this important movement with purpose, knowledge and direction.
The Manifesto is the product of two years of consultation with our Voice of the Collective – a dedicated group of awesome leaders from almost 200 public and private organisations here in Australia.
Representitives from every level and corner of organisations have been involved – including Sales, Finance, Operations, HR and Marketing – because EVERYBODY, regardless of title or position, has a huge part to play in building thriving workplaces!
Download the Manifesto below to gain an unique insight into what your peers think about these important questions:
* What does a thriving leader, team or workplace look like? *
* What are the key ingredients to thrive? *
* What are the realities that we are facing that may be preventing us from thriving already? *
