The Change Management Institute

As a change manager for many years, Camille started her career in HR and is passionate about enabling people, particularly leaders and change networks, to work in organisations to achieve business outcomes.  

Camille’s work history has seen her line-manage teams, such as an operational team of 145 with 39 different nationalities working across many different States, across 7 different functional areas.  She jumped the fence into internal consultancy and influenced change back into that division within which she was previously a manager.  

There she looked after change management communities within a big organisation and managed the HR aspects of workforce planning and resourcing, what sorts of work they were doing and how they developed capability. 

Guiding, advising and enabling senior leadership teams, she has delivered astute, commercial, pragmatic change management strategies that have steered organisations through significant IT and cultural transformations. She draws on experience from influencing culture from within organisations to consultancy roles in which she was influencing others. 

Naomi says: “During our conversation, Camille told me that culture has the biggest impact in the embedding phase, that the definition of capability used in change management is broader than in project management and that the keys to understanding culture are to listen well and observe well.  I loved her practical down-to-earth approach to enabling change leaders and change networks to drive results. Camille talks about going into an organisation and determining what the culture is and what tools and assets are available so that she can assess where she can add value. For her, it is about building up the ability for people to really implement change well in a sustained way and get the benefits of that investment. Camille shares several useful resources with our listeners, one of which is an article she wrote called the Seven Deadly Virtues of a Change Manager.’
