Future of Work expert, Kim Seeling Smith helps organisations build and retain a future fit workforce to reach their commercial goals, create thriving cultures, and overcome challenges and seize opportunities presented by the post-pandemic world. She engages audiences as a master storyteller, passionate educator and trend translator.

Kim has literally had a seat at the table with Sir Richard Branson for the innovative work she does around the Future of Work, was named a Top 101 Global Influencer on Employee Engagement, wrote THE how to guide on 1:1 employee check-ins, Mind Reading for Managers, and co-wrote a Career Development Guide with mega author Brian Tracy.

You will frequently see Kim on Sunrise, The Today Show, in Forbes, Fast Company, SmartCompany, CEO Magazine, CNBC Online, the Australian Financial Review, the Sydney Morning Herald and many other print and radio media outlets.

A recovering, KPMG trained CPA, Kim has run an international, award-winning consulting firm since 2009 and has partnered iconic brands such as Cisco, EY, Laminex, Sydney Opera House and many small to medium sized businesses.

Prior to founding her business, she managed globally ranked recruitment teams and has personally conducted over 5,000 exit interviews.  Kim has served as a judge for four international HR awards, the RCSA Awards for recruitment professionals and a Future Leaders Award for consulting engineers.

She is a founding member of Virgin Unite’s 100% Human at Work Initiative in Australia and the Chief Inspiration Officer for Inspire Sydney.

Kim is a highly engaging, thought provoking and inspiring speaker who leaves her audience with clarity, optimism — and at least three actionable steps to make an immediate difference in their business.

Her presentations are loaded with innovative but practical solutions that participants can apply immediately.

The innovative concepts that she shares in her presentations and workshops are based on:

  • Reverse engineering over 5,000 exit interviews — which means attendees don't have to guess what their employees need to be highly motivated and productive.
  • Extensive global and Australian research into Employee Experience — an increasingly popular (and cost-effective) way to increase employee engagement and retention.
  • Regular participation in invitation-only gatherings with Sir Richard Branson and his Virgin Unite (VU) group, as well as the Australian chapter of VU's 100% Human at Work initiative.
  • Over a decade consulting with organisations across over 32 industries within 15 countries including EY, Travelex, Cisco, GHD, Brickworks, Tassal Group, OMD, Muffin Break, Cardno, Squarespace, TransUnion, Sydney Water, Krispy Kreme and Palo Alto Networks.

Kim's presentations and facilitations have 3 goals:

  • To be leading edge without being 'bleeding edge'
  • To give her audience at least 3 tools (she calls this her '3 Ah Ha!' guarantee) that they can implement immediately
  • To be engaging, interactive — and fun!
