Kylie de Klerk

About the facilitator

Kylie is what you may call a Culture Nerd, a seasoned professional with many years of hands-on experience building strong teams and cultures in organisations. She is magnetised to a challenge and the opportunity to help people understand more about themselves and their behaviour in the workplace and reach their goals.

She spent much of her management career working in the Pharmaceutical Industry, leading and developing people of all races, ages and education backgrounds. Some of her best results have included developing individuals and teams to higher standards of award-winning performance and preparing teams to meet strategic goals by accelerating both technical and non-technical skills.

Kylie focuses on a larger ecosystem than just team dynamics and being a catalyst for individual performance she also understands how corporate culture enables the achievement of not only the immediate business goals but it also supports innovation and future readiness.

Due to her background in Biological Sciences, Kylie has an acute aptitude for detail, systems and processes as well as a logical approach to business and people, yet, her passion and results are most evident when she combines this way of viewing the workplace with a human-behaviour centred approach to learning, development and organisational change.

Kylie has worked for over a decade in large corporate, high-pressure and diverse environments. Her detail-focused approach to the holistic organisation has meant she spends much of her time identifying barriers to performance and connections and implementing bespoke solutions. Her own experience has also given her a unique perspective on improving both the employee and customer experiences.

Kylie is a certified Employee Engagement Coach she holds a Science Degree as well as numerous certificates related to leadership, organisational behaviour, innovation and emotional intelligence. She is the Owner-Consultant at her own practice, a Board Advisor and a Management Consultant in the area of people and culture. She has worked across numerous industries ranging from the Medical and Pharmaceutical industries to Aged Care, Commodities, Education and Engineering.

Her unique skill is working with emotional intelligence to truly understand people's behaviour in the workplace. She is an evangelist on the topics of emotional intelligence in the workplace and truly believes that innovation and performance follow as a result of having a positive workplace culture.
