Knowing what makes people tick has always fascinated Hiam, especially what differentiates high performing leaders and teams from others. She lived and breathed this fascination as the Head of Manager Development (APAC) with Google where she uncovered powerful, evidence-based ways to create high performing teams and leaders able to respond fast to business changes through innovation. During her 10 year tenure at Google, she lived and breathed the unique experience of how technology changes industries and how to navigate that change successfully through your people. She understands the impact change can have on people, and knows how to take them on a journey having led strategic change initiatives at a regional and global level.
Taking that experience with her, Hiam founded a Culture Transformation consulting practice that aims to expand the human potential in business by creating environments and conditions where people thrive and that is unique to each workplace. The Culture Equation specializes in Culture Transformation for large organisations of over 500 people. Currently working with organisations such us Western Sydney University, Chubb Insurance and Northrop, Hiam believes culture cannot be manufactured, rather it has to grow organically through its people.
Collaboration and embracing diversity are important to Hiam and she proudly contributes her skills and expertise as a Non-Executive Director with Cerebral Palsy Alliance, Xceptional and as a mentor for Remarkable, Australia’s first disability-focused impact accelerator. Hiam is a global citizen, inspired by her entrepreneurial parents who travelled the world with their family. Having lived in The Middle East, Ireland, United States and now in Sydney she lives the family motto of ‘chasing experience’. Collaboration is also an important value that Hiam lives by, attracting exceptional talent to support the delivery of large programs of work for our clients. We believe the best people bring with them a stellar reputation, vast experience and deep technical expertise. Everything from People Analytics experts to top coaches and facilitators are sourced to deliver on bespoke programs co-designed with clients.
