Julie Sloan has provided invaluable insight and support which has benefitted this Institution in the short and long term. Julie has taken the scope of her brief and has delivered within budget, before time and to an exceptional standard. Julie has confidently engaged key Senior Stakeholders and was very quickly able to navigate around the politics within the Institution whilst remaining flexible to our needs. Julie was able to offer a number of recommended ways of working, all with a view to understanding and appreciating what works within the environment of which we operate.

She put us on the map! Julie would not claim that status but in her own quiet and very effective way she has certainly done that for Australia with regard to Workforce Planning. She’s won the respect and trust of a diverse group of professionals locally and then globally, people who hold very different approaches to HRM and Workforce Planning. She’s helped people listen to each other, to showcase their contributions and in doing so to see the strengths in others’ contributions. She’s journeyed that very difficult and meandering route of employee, business partner, academic, inventor and volunteer to champion and lead the recognition of workforce planning as an area of professional practice that sits beside financial planning. She’s patiently and consistently communicated the importance of workforce planning locally for two decades and globally since 2008.
