    Jennifer Bryan

    As a practicing Change Consultant I have worked with over 30 different organisations across multiple industries.  I’m a Non-Executive Board Member of the ACMP (Association of Change Management Professionals) UK Chapter and passionately believe in helping people - in whatever capacity I can - by making sure people are thought of first, last and throughout change projects and programmes.  She has created a unique leading change framework, the ABChange Model, which has been published in peer review journals and several other articles, as well as, presented at multiple conferences and client leadership events. The Model is underpinned by accepted theories in leadership and change. It then builds upon them a framework which enables managers to create their own strategies and action plans, effecting specific change within their organisations.

    I’m a Kiwi currently living in North Wales. I’ve been in the UK now for 15 years so it’s becoming my second home. I'm an Asset Management and Equipment Reliability Specialist working with equipment dependent organisations to assure reliability, reduce risks and retain physical asset health. Working in a mostly engineering and industrial world, I see a lot of change happening with little consideration of the people. I've been a change management advocate and practitioner since the early 2000s when I started managing a national Maintenance Improvement Project (23 sites in NZ). It was during this time, I learned (the hard way!) how important change management is to achieving the desired business goals in the right way for those impacted.

    Gerda Stelpstra

    As an anthropologist I´m quite the ugly duckling in the corporate real estate sector. I like to be the odd one, a thought provoker inspiring people to look at topics from different angles. As a change practitioner I use anthropological principles to guide workplace environment related change. I believe as an external practitioner you can only achieve so much, change needs to come from the inside. But helping organisations lead their employees through change that will ultimately improve their work experience gives me energy and even more so when it leads to new and improved rituals and behaviours in the workplace. I am an introverted extravert, enjoy working together in a team with a good balance of individual time, and live by the principle ´under promise, over deliver´. I dislike hierarchy, bureaucracy and unrealistic expectations.
