Join key executives to gain invaluable insights on their personal change experiences.

The best insights for change managers often come from our clients. What have they liked and valued? What specific tools and approaches did they think worked best? And what qualities do they appreciate most in a change manager?  These are the types of invaluable insights that will be on offer during this rare opportunity to hear from executive-level leaders who've undergone significant change/business transformation. The interactive forum will allow for a constructive exchange of ideas between change managers and organisational executives willing to speak candidly about their change experiences. 

A breakfast event with limited attendees at Hudson’s Brisbane office at Level 17, 66 Eagle St, Brisbane.

We are pleased to announce the following four panellists will share their experiences (listed in alphabetical order):

Marcus McAuliffe

Master of Business Administration, Bachelor of Arts, Diploma OH&S, Associate Diploma, Personnel Administration Certificate, Vocational Instruction, Graduate Associate, Australian Institute of Company Directors, Harvard Business School, Advanced Management Program  

Marcus McAuliffe has had a career characterised by leadership roles in which organisational change was required to enable the execution of business strategy - in a way that has ‘measurable impact’. This has involved working with Boards and executive teams to develop strategies to win; understanding the work required to execute these strategies; and then ensuring the organisational model is in place to facilitate the effective conduct of that work. (The consideration of organisational model is holistic in that it encompasses the structure, systems, processes and culture of the organisation.)

Marcus has recently put ‘his money where his mouth is’ and acquired a business (George Weston & Sons Pty Ltd) with a view to realising the potential value that should be released through its transformation. Prior to this, Marcus was COO and then CEO of Wiggins Island Coal Export Terminal (WICET) during the period October 2013 to March 2016. During this time, Marcus oversaw the $3Bn construction project established to deliver coal export infrastructure of strategic significance to Australia. Prior to this between mid-2012 and September 2013, he completed two executive transformation assignments which were Acting CEO, CS Energy Ltd; and Interim COO, WesTrac (Seven Group Holdings Ltd). In the period from mid-2008 to 2012, Marcus was Chief Executive Officer and Executive Vice President, QR National Coal, where he led a significant business transformation to build a foundation for future growth and shareholder returns.  The success of this work was presented to the market as part of QR National’s (now Aurizon’s) Initial Public Offering on the ASX in 2010. 

Marcus commenced his career in the Defence Force, graduating from the Royal Military College in 1987 after four years of officer training. He transitioned to his career in business in 1996. His early business career involved roles in middle and senior management with Patrick Logistics, Brambles and Incitec.

Martin Moore Chief Executive Officer


Martin Moore joined CS Energy as Chief Executive Officer in 2013, after forging a successful career with a range of blue chip companies across multiple industries.

Since that time, Martin has led the business transformation program that has seen CS Energy dramatically turn around its operational and commercial performance, resolve long-standing commercial disputes, and capture a number of revenue growth opportunities.

In a career spanning more than 30 years, Martin has held senior executive roles in sales and marketing, finance, strategy, and IT. Prior to joining CS Energy, Martin spent five years at Aurizon (formerly QR National), where he was an integral part of the executive team that took the company to one of the largest and most successful IPOs in Australian corporate history. He has also held executive level roles at National Transport Insurance and Mt Isa Mines.

Martin holds an Executive MBA from the QUT Graduate School of Business, and is a graduate of Harvard Business School’s Advanced Management Program. He is currently a director on the Board of the Australian Energy Council.
