The Future of Work
If meaningful work can provide hope and purpose and positive mental health outcomes, is there the danger of a serious social divide in Australia caused not only by a welfare system that has become so generous that it discourages employment and self-reliance but also by the realities of a diminishing job market?
How are job markets likely to evolve in our 21st-century digital economy?
Come and listen to this must hear debate involving some of Australia’s best innovative thinkers on a topic which is posing ever increasing challenges to government and our market society

I met Jenny Brice when I was a speaker on a conference panel and Jenny was the facilitator for the session.
I was impressed with Jenny’s eloquence, engagement with the speakers and audience and her inclusive approach. Jenny also drew upon her own real life experiences to bring a warmth and authenticity to the discussion. Jenny had a knack of making the speakers feel at ease and bond quickly.
Since then I have had the enjoyment of continuing to work with Jenny and enjoy our thought provoking conversations. Jenny encourages me to think differently. Jenny is a true thought leader.
Janette Hewson, Vice President Government Relations and General Counsel at Peabody Energy Australia
The simple fact of the matter is that people listen when Jenny speaks. Jenny has an amazing ability to rise above the noise and to engage you in thought provoking conversation. Her intelligence enables her to be a thought leader
and her experience allows her to articulate and open minds to the future of work.
Gareth Smith, Skillsoft, Regional Account Executive
Developed programs that was a product of thought leadership.
They included developing confidence in people as a strategic advantage.
Jenny developed a well-recognized and applauded leadership program while she was the GM of HR at Fuji Xerox. It was a eight month program for senior managers linked to the companies succession plan.
Whilst I was at Fuji Xerox, I was privileged to have had the opportunity to attend an in-depth 15 month Leadership Program that was developed and facilitated by Jenny Brice. The program was exceptional and unique in terms of its breadth and scope. All participants completed the program with a fresh perspective not only on leadership qualities, but also on their own position and influence in the workplace. It is hard to believe that I attended the Program almost 10 years ago, as the learnings and experience I gained are still pertinent in my professional and personal life
I reported directly to Jenny for approximately 4 years in her role as General Manager, Human Resources. Jenny was a compelling role model, encouraging me to always take my career to the next level. I learnt a tremendous amount in watching Jenny successfully navigate ambiguity within the organisation, as well as her determination when faced with complex issue resolution. Jenny’s “moral compass” does not waiver, which quickly earns her the respect of both leaders and employees alike.
Jenny’s impact on either an individual or a team will be both immediate and long lasting. She has an uncanny ability to drill down to the crux of an issue whilst encouraging self-reflection. If you are looking to accelerate your career, or simply want to challenge the status quo, then I can’t recommend Jenny highly enough.
Annabel Stewart, HR Director, Asia Pacific at Mitel
I have had the privilege of working with Jenny twice now – once when Jenny was the General Manager of Human Resources at Fuji Xerox where she developed and ran what I would call one of the best leadership development programs, and second time more recently when I engaged Jenny to be an executive coach for two of my direct reports with great results. Jenny’s immense experience and knowledge on the subject matter as well as her engagement style tailored to meet individual needs means she excels at being an executive coach and I have no hesitation in recommending Jenny to anyone who is looking to be challenged with a view to develop further as a leader and a better person overall.
