Anna Marie Crowley

Global Head of Talent Management, Avaya

Raised in the UK to Irish parents and armed with a Postgrad in Education, a love of travel, a deep-rooted passion for people development and the belief that everyone should be treated with dignity and respect, my career path evolved over time and several countries.

Having ran by own business in Italy, worked in a British Airways Low cost start-up airline in the UK, developed a Global Talent Development team in North America with Wyndham Worldwide, crossed industries into a Utility on the West Coast, I am now back on the East Coast in yet another industry with Tech giant Avaya.  Balancing this with being a single mom has its challenges but the rewards greatly out-way these challenges every day. My work life balance comes from the fact that I love my work and that provides the balance.   

Developing leaders has been a critical part of each and every role I have taken and the tools I rely on such as, Executive coaching, profiling tools, mentoring, championing the right behaviors, holding up the unwanted mirror on occasion and having the courage to stand up when needed are all key to professionals in people development and creating a culture where engagement thrives. The changing face of our Talent pool brings great opportunity to the workplace and to the customers they service. Being a part of this changing journey is something I embrace.

Burke Powers

CEO, Reveal Why

For 20 years, I have helped companies achieve both short-term sales and long-term branding and reputation. I did this by operationalizing a holistic customer experience program and driving digital transformation, so we could understand and adapt to changing customer, market, and competitor dynamics.

In addition, I led the creation of advanced business analytics programs to help executives and senior management of SMB's and Fortune 100 companies alike to drive growth, transformation and innovation both domestically and internationally. I have led change and impact at many companies, including JetBlue Airways, IBM, PayPal, Nationwide, Macy’s, JPMorgan-Chase, DirectTV, Microsoft, Nike, and Walmart.

I believe:
• in being generous with talents and skills to help others
• that money is easy, impact is hard
• that most problems are the result of complex systems of incentives and interactions and without understanding that web, few change efforts will succeed
• that people are more important than things

Group General Manager, Client Experience and Service Design, Ministry of Social Development

In September 2017 Jayne took up a new role within the Ministry of Social Development (MSD) as the Group General Manager Client Experience and Service Design.

The new business unit of Client Experience and Service Design is responsible for ensuring the voice of the client is embedded in the way we design, develop and deliver services to New Zealanders. Never satisfied with the status quo, we are always looking for more effective services and how we can deliver the right services to the right clients at the right time. To do this, we need to harness a wide range of information and evidence to determine which services and programmers work best for which clients.

Prior to this role, Jayne was the General Manager Investment Approach, a role she was in since May 2015. She has previously worked in the team as a National Manager from 2013-2014.  The then newly created Investment Approach Group became part of Work and Income (MSD’s operational Service Delivery) as part of a wider welfare reform programme. Some of the key aspects of the investment approach were the introduction of actuarial modelling to establish the lifetime costs of the welfare system (and the client segments within it), a clear investment strategy to ensure all Work and Income funding is optimally directed toward improving client outcomes and a rigorous monitoring and evaluation of the effectiveness of services and supports in improving client outcomes.

Before leading the Investment Approach Group, Jayne was on a 12-month secondment to the role of General Manager Employer Services. Employer Services work with industry, business leaders and major employers at a national level. We use these partnerships to minimise skill and labour shortages and maximise job opportunities for our clients. Employer Services also support our frontline regional staff in the development of local labour market solutions.
