Founder, Workplace Strategist

Many flexible workplaces struggle to establish productive flexible work and provide staff with a thriving culture. Teams can be unsure how to maintain effective communication and collaboration.

Businesses can thrive when they understand the distinct needs of flexible workplaces, and have the mindset and systems to support them, tailored to their unique circumstances.

This is where Nina brings her special talent in supporting organisations to build a flexible workforce. She shows leaders how to design their unique approach for an effective flexible workplace. Together with her team Nina conducts workplace reviews; establishes flexible work pilots, programs and policies; supports office relocations and shows organisations how to improve their Activity Based Working environments in line with best practice. 

Nina began her career in creating agile workplaces by leading the Australian team that doubled the number of people who work from home as a digital economy goal in Australia.

Leading Australian companies and organisations use the proprietary Flexibility Capability Framework Nina created, which was adopted by the Workplace Gender Equality Agency. 

Audiences trust her as a leading voice in flexible work and the future of work in both Australia and New Zealand since 2011. Nina has been featured by Employment Today, the Australian Institute of Management, First 5000, and Canberra Business News. She has spoken at a variety of conferences about the future of work, including the New Zealand Future of Work Commission. 

Nina is a business leader, consultant, speaker and trained mediator, working across both Australia and New Zealand. She started her career as a Speech Pathologist (otherwise known as Speech and Language Therapist) after earning an Honours Degree in the Applied Science of Communication. A career in the Australian Public Service led into management roles and a successful transition into consulting in 2013, when she established Transformed Teams. Nina has been supporting leading organisations to establish successful flexible workplaces ever since.

The purpose of Transformed Teams to create opportunities for people working in teams to thrive. When teams thrive, business booms and everyone enjoys the benefits. For Nina, this is living out her life purpose – creating opportunities for others to thrive. 

Wellington, New Zealand is Nina’s home town although Sydney, Australia is ‘where she is from’. Nina’s favourite place to be is on a window seat above the clouds – it’s where the best ideas happen. When she is relaxing Nina loves to be somewhere near Wellington or Sydney harbour with a cup of good coffee. Throw in the promise of a beautiful meal, with plenty of time to read and draw and the day looks just about perfect.
