Mandy Johnson is a best-selling business author and the former UK director of global travel giant, Flight Centre Limited where, in a bid to save her career, she threw away the old HR textbooks, experimented with new techniques, and created an unconventional people system that produced astonishing profit results.

She contributes regular articles to business media such as Smart Company and has been interviewed and/or featured in Sky Business News, The Australian Financial Review, BRW, Boss Magazine, ABC Radio’s Conversation Hour and Jon Faine Morning Programme, Qantas In-Flight Radio with Alan Kohler and German Eins Magazine for her unconventional business strategies.

Her first book Family, Village Tribe (Random House) rated in Kobo’s top five in the Business-Entrepreneurship category in 2014 and is studied in many MBA courses around Australia.

Her second book Winning the War for Talent (Wiley Business) was released in April 2014 and has garnered widespread interest on TV, radio and in the business press. As a presenter, Mandy’s Winning the War for Talent seminar was Bond University’s highest-rated executive education program of its year.

Now run as part of the University of Queensland Business School’s executive education programme, it is the only course to achieve a perfect 100% evaluation rating. Mandy changes the way the audience sees their business and shows how innovative people practices transform organisations and achieve extraordinary results.

An accomplished public speaker, her audiences come away inspired by her presentations which are based not on theory, but on proven results.

Mandy’s message has always been relevant, to the point and hits the target…she is an engaging presenter whose impact has been referred to within our organization, in some cases, many years after her presentations.

Mandy Johnson spoke at our Leadership Conference in Melbourne in July 2014. During her session you could almost hear the sound of multiple pens on paper with so many people taking notes. Mandy was one of the best speakers at the conference, as rated by our audience - real estate business owners and managers…. I believe that Mandy is an asset to any conference, and to every business to which she consults.

It was refreshing to have someone present something where they had actually achieved great results and not as a theory-based seminar. I have spent considerable time since your seminar reworking much of our processes – as per your recommendations - and they are proving to be significantly better.
