Julia Richardson addressing WA leaders

Round table with WA Leaders

On Thursday, March 15, Deputy Head of School of Management, Associate Professor Julia Richardson, facilitated a round table session for the WA Leaders organisation.

Curtin Business School is an Industry Partner of WA Leaders and has provided expert knowledge to the organisation over the last two years.

Julia led a lively discussion with the Founders/Owners of WA businesses across all sectors. Julia’s round table session focussed on Organisational Justice and how this can impact job performance, motivation and turnover. Julia has had extensive experience with SMEs both in Australia & NZ. Julia has recently been appointed to the NZ Business Performance Panel which has assisted over 600,000 NZ businesses with their productivity.

In November 2017, Dr Louis Geneste also presented on Design Thinking to the WA Leaders cohort and this excellent presentation resulted in a WA Leaders member putting forward their business as a case study for our students in ORGM5000 Strategy, Change and Innovation (MBA Global).

Our thanks to both Julia and Louis for their contributions to industry engagement and the Faculty’s Executive Education portfolio.
