Written by Kate Billing, Founder & Creative Director, Blacksmith

Great to see such strong interest in our BY INVITATION Flexible Workforce Revolution webinar with Stella Green. A timely conversation as organisations consider new ways of working in the midst of arguably the biggest global workforce disruption of our lives.

A written overview of the session will be posted as a blog on our website next week and shared in Fully Human email update (Tuesday 29 September 2020). That will be followed by a Bonus Q&A guest blog from Stella, with answers to some of the questions that didn’t make it into the top three for answering ‘live’.

You can connect with Stella here on LinkedIn and via email [email protected].

If you missed the invitation to this session and would like to be on the list for future events like this for our HR, L&D, OD and Executive community members, please email [email protected]

Kate Billing and Stella Green


Kate Billing:

Kate is the Founder & Creative Director of Blacksmith and she is on a mission to put the tricky business of being FULLY HUMAN at the centre of how we live, lead and work.

Kate believes it’s time for a new kind of leader. Human-centred leaders who together will create the world we need for our shared future. Leaders who are examples of what’s possible when we commit to the deepest levels of humanity and responsibility in the ways that we live, lead and do business.

For nearly 25 years she has worked in the people, culture and leadership space, building a reputation for sharp insights, compassionate challenge, warmth and energy. Always connected to her diverse global community, Kate brings the best of what’s happening out there to New Zealand, and takes the best of our home-grown wisdom to the world.
