Wellness Specialist + Change Strategist = The change you want to see
We met up on an Outward-Bound Wellbeing Course. Through our shared physical, mental and emotional challenges and experiences on the course, teamed with rich conversations of our own life journeys, we began to recognise our mutual drive to help people live well, work well and stay well.
Robin has held many Leadership and Relationship Management roles throughout her career during times of significant turbulence and change in the highly competitive banking sector and more recently, leading a Not for Profit organisation in the Health and Disability sector. This experience, teamed with her wellness background, gives Robin a unique insight into the demands and stresses of working in both the business and NGO world.
Robin is the mother of two adult sons. Trying to juggle motherhood with a demanding career and the stressors of a seriously unwell husband eventually paid its price, resulting in a personal health crisis. By deciding to implement more holistic changes to her life, Robin improved her wellbeing.
This lead her to follow her passion of assisting others on their own wellness journey, by empowering them to live the life they want to live.

The journey into workplace wellness and resilience seemed a natural progression for Co-Founder/Director of Workplace Wellness, Leonie Wallwork, at this life stage in her career where she could leverage her wealth of experience to help others create great places to work where people are engaged, motivated and productive.
After more than 25 years’ experience at the pointy end as a senior executive including CEO level, Directorships, HR and Change Manager and as a Business Advisor and Consultant across private sector, government and NGO sectors, she had experienced first-hand the impact of change in the world of work, restructures, rapid growth or rapid decline in businesses, the challenges of turning a profit or, in the case of NGOs, finding funding to support their purpose and cause, and the myriad of differing workplace cultures (some quite toxic) and management styles. It stirred up a burning desire to get to the core of many of the issues people and organisations were facing and nip them in the bud.
Working closely and inspired by the work of Geoff Pearman, Founder of Partners in Change, and world thought leader in the area of age and work, she found many cross overs and opportunities to change the narrative on wellness/ wellbeing, inclusive workplaces for people of all ages and to work strategically on turning the tide on enabling organisations to be sustainable, healthy and well.
Leonie studied at Massey University and graduated with a Bachelor of Business Studies in HR Management and has worked at senior levels in both Australia and NZ.
Leonie is also an Associate with Partners in Change working in the area of Age and Work developing strategies and designing practical solutions for our ageing workforce and ageing population. Health and wellbeing is an integral part to developing age inclusive workplaces.
