Welcome to Avril Henry and Associates
Since 2003, Avril transformed her career from an extensive, award winning corporate experience into the hugely successful and widely popular keynote speaker, author and corporate motivator that she is today.
Forming Avril Henry and Associates as a way to consolidate all her experience and skills under one identity, Avril has taken her organisation to the next level by working with senior leadership teams and employees from organisations such as IBM, Commonwealth Departments of Defence, Education, State Health Departments NSW, Queensland, Victoria, Optus, BHP Billiton, Commonwealth Bank, NAB, IBM, Astra Zeneca, University of Western Sydney and many more.
Senior management can lead employees on how to communicate more effectively with one another. But first, senior management must learn how to do this themselves. Keynote and workshop topics from Avril such as "Leading in Challenging Times", "Motivating, Managing & Surviving Different Generations at Work", "Communicating Positively", "Winning Together Teamwork", "Resolving Conflict Constructively" and "The Business Case for Diversity" will introduce senior management to a greater understanding of how to motivate and manage all employees to interact with each other and management more effectively.
Great Leaders Are Made, women's leadership development
We are delighted to announce our next leadership development program for women, Great Leaders Are Made (GLAM) in February, March and April 2014 in Sydney.
The aim of our GLAM program is to empower participants, and further develop their management and leadership skills in preparation for more senior roles in their organisation.
Many participants have attended our programs since 2011 and have provided extremely positive feedback. Their comments included:
“GLAM offered important and rare 'me time' - time out from the everyday business of work to think more strategically about my career, learn new tools and be informed about aspects of leadership. Pacing the course over 8 weeks gave us a chance to reflect, implement our learning and report back on achievements. It was encouraging to see how the other women progressed and provided further inspiration for me to also take chances and step-up.”
“The three days of the GLAM program, spread over three months, provided the opportunity for me to reflect on my career - my achievements to date, the areas I need to develop/improve and the direction I wish to take into the future, both professionally and personally. The program has given me the tools to prepare for and then launch the next phase of my career.”
“Doing GLAM gave me the space I needed in my busy work and personal life to focus on me; my needs, my skills and my desires both professionally and personally. I have looked at myself in the mirror and made decisions since doing GLAM, it’s time to make some choices in my life that benefit and challenge me.”
“GLAM provides the practical skills and advice required to be an effective leader, and to better compete in a dynamic work environment. It is both a personal and professional development opportunity that I highly recommend.”
