Anneli Blundell

Professional People Whisperer,

Voted as one of YMag’s Top Ten Women to Watch in 2019, Anneli’s passion for decoding people and performance dynamics make her a sought after speaker, mentor and leadership expert. She makes the complex job of understanding why people do what they do (and how to get the best out of them), both accessible and entertaining.

Anneli works with leaders to increase their influence, engagement and interpersonal impact for better business results.

She is the author of ‘When men lead women: Navigating the facts, fears and frustrations of gender equality as a male leader’, and the co-author of the acclaimed leadership book: ‘Developing Direct Reports: Taking the guesswork out of leading leaders,’ a leader’s guide to coaching the best from people.

Her client list includes Mercedes-Benz, Ernst and Young, Telstra, Victoria Police, NAB, JB Hi-Fi, The Good Guys, and many more. She has been featured as an expert across multi media publications including The Australian – Business Review, HuffPost, 3AW, Herald Sun, Daily Telegraph, The Advertiser, The Courier Mail and Modern Business Magazine, to name a few.

Oh and she’s a nifty parallel parker, a keen runner and a salsa dancing addict who loves any meal cooked by someone else!
