Leadership & Management Consultant, Positive Intelligence(PQ) Coach, Wellness Expert, Mental Hygiene Advocate
LaBarron has promised to lead a session on the links between performance and wellbeing. It stands to reason that feelings of fairness, levels of task challenge, team conflict or cooperation all add up to whether people feel well at work.
In his session, we will delve into practical strategies that bridge the gap between Mental Hygiene and Performance Management. Recognizing the challenges faced by individuals in high-pressure environments, we'll explore actionable steps to foster a positive mental framework that directly enhances professional effectiveness. We can't wait to learn from LaBarron.

Head of Global Human Resources, MUFG Bank
International Head of Human Resources, MUFG Securities. Vice Chair of ACCJ Women in Business Committee
Angus joins us with a unique perspective. He is working within the context of a major international bank with a non-Western culture, but nevertheless operating globally. As a result colleagues are possibly more diverse than is normally the case and more mobile too.
Against this background, thinking about the mutual needs of individuals and the Bank is central to solving the riddle of talent and performance.
Angus, who initially trained as a lawyer, brings fresh insights, some hairy stories and a wealth of good sense. We can't wait to hear him speak.
Partner Crowe - Workforce Advisory. Global Practice Leader, Global Mobility Services
Dino’s expertise lies in identifying and advising
organisations on the issues they face when employees’ roles become cross border
in nature and when they move their people or their operations across
international jurisdictions. Implicit in these highly expensive moves is an understanding that performance management is critical to achieving
ROI or talent will leak or under deliver
Although this isn't a reward conference inevitably we'll touch occassionally on the subject. Dino is going to make sure we have relevant information on global trends, and that we continue to return to the subject of talent acquisition, growth, deployment and not get sidetracked into pay issues. We think it's going to be super having him fully in the discussion.
CPO from a Global Brand
She says "The current era represents a golden age for the HR profession, with the Chief People Officer (CPO) assuming a pivotal role. Advancements in technology and automation have relieved HR leaders of many administrative and procedural tasks, enabling the CPO to steer the organization towards formulating and executing strategies for talent and work arrangements, which are vital for driving future business growth. In the foreseeable future, an organization's success or failure will be fundamentally determined by the quality and strength of its human capital.
To navigate the evolving landscape of work and effectively address critical people-related challenges that impact a company's financial performance, organizations need visionary and resolute HR leadership. It is imperative to transcend outdated HR models, as failure to do so can have catastrophic consequences for the company.
I am a highly experienced performance management and change management leader with 30 years’ organisational and consulting experience and a deep track record of:
* Performance management and employee engagement strategy, design and deliveryIndependent HR and change consulting, thought leadership and project-based delivery.
* I have worked for a huge variety of organisations, from global giants to small start-ups, in the private and public sector, from the ‘complex and corporate’ to the ‘scrappy and agile’.
I have the ability to 'speak sense' and galvanize business leaders and teams into action. I love managing complex, emotive HR and change projects, keeping a strategic eye on the big picture as well as delivering the detail. I enjoy advising and influencing stakeholders and love constructively challenging the status quo. Some might say I’m the “critical friend” who would be the one brave enough to tell you if you had spinach caught in your teeth :)

I was an international banker, a treasurer, and a finance director before moving into the field of coaching, facilitation and leadership development. This unusual transition, and witnessing business-life from both the Finance-side and the HR-side has given me insights into performance management and talent retention that previously, frankly, pretty much passed me by! Having been ‘driven by numbers’ I have discovered how organizational success is driven by people and yet these two perspectives have to work in tandem.
I am convinced that the most effective leaders manage performance and retain talent through the use of coaching skills woven into their everyday practice. Not copying independent coaches, but as leaders-who-coach.
As a ‘pracademic’ (!) I am a Visiting Fellow at Cranfield University and a Visiting Professor in Leadership and Coaching at the London Institute of Banking and Finance. And I am widely published alongside Dr Jenny Robinson.

I am a Kiwi entrepreneur with five successful businesses established over thirty years, the first I established as a kid (I was just 18 years old) and it is still thriving today. That was a fully commercial radio station.
Because start-up businesses are so reliant on finding, keeping, growing and enabling their people, I have deep interest in Performance, Motivation and Leadership.
At a mid-point in my career, I joined Towers Perrin (now WillisTowersWatson) as an equity partner and gained experience working alongside super large global organizations.
Not surprisingly, from exposure to all sizes of companies I developed a world view on what conditions support human flourishing at work.
My very real-world experience gives me a unique perspective and voice in this arena where I passionately believe that Performance Management IS Talent Management.
