A former General Manager in the corporate Health Industry, Wayne has more than 30 years experience in the design and delivery of health/wellbeing programs at the worksite. He was one of the founders of the worksite health movement in Australia. He established the first national network of health management practices in Australia.

In recent times he has directed his attention to the business challenges created by an ageing workforce. His experience is in demonstrating to companies that programs designed for this cohort often act as a lens into broader enterprise strategies and practises. The emerging shift from a health to “wellbeing” framework is an example of this trend.

Wayne is a respected collaborator who has been involved in the development of health/workforce management strategies and programs for some of Australia’s best known organisations. His current clients include The Victorian WorkCover Authority, VicRoads, Simplot, Sensis, Agilent Technologies, Allianz Australia, Austin Health, and the Department of Education Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR).  Past clients in community, government and business sectors include Ford Australia and New Zealand, AMP, Westpac, Telstra, City of Darebin, The Australian Institute of Superannuation Trustees, Australian Health Management and the AiGroup.

He has provided consulting services and delivered programs in Canada, USA, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand and Singapore.

He is regularly asked to present into leadership forums, business groups, industry bodies and professional associations. His insight and experience brings confidence to senior executives dealing with the complexities of an ageing workforce. In recent times he has conducted seminars and workshops for CEDA, AIST, AiGroup, DEEWR, Australian Safety Institute, VHIA and WorkSafe.

Prior to establishing his consultancy practice Wayne served at York University in Toronto and was a founding faculty member of The Department of Human Movement Studies at Victoria University.
