A bit more about us

We are proud the Change Management Institute originated and was incorporated in Australia in 2005. The Australian change community is lively and active, and the Change Management Institute works with our members to offer networking, professional development and thought leadership opportunities in a variety of ways.

We have a network of established Chapters across Australia offering events and activities to participate in. Find out more about our events here. You can also join our Australia Linkedin Group.

We look for opportunities to engage in national conversations, meet-ups and thought leadership in a broad range of change management topics and themes.
