Callum McKirdy - Director & Lead Facilitator

Callum McKirdy - Director & Lead Facilitator My professional experience comprises 14 years in roles spanning the industrial spectrum in a career where I have made a series of deliberate career changes in order to further develop my skill and passion for enhancing individual capability.

A confident, captivating and engaging public speaker (see my Testimonial page here), I have lead discussions and presented on a variety of topics across New Zealand in many diverse settings from team "away" days to conferences and symposiums.

I am the 2014 President of the Dunedin-based Wildsouth Branch of HRINZ, the Human Resources Institute of New Zealand, and am also on the Steering Committee of the Otago Careers Festival - two causes I am passionate about as they both serve to support, enhance and develop people to achieve their goals.I have lectured at both the University of Otago and Otago Polytechnic - teaching the Advanced Human Resources paper in 2013.

I am also KornFerry / Lominger Leadership Architect accredited, allowing me to facilitate individual and team development sessions using Lominger’s full suite of internationally recognised research-based assessment and development methodologies.
