David Peake is a passionate Organisational Psychologist, holding post-graduate qualifications from Monash University. David is currently the CEO and Co-Founder of Team Gene Pty Ltd, a boutique business consultancy linking capability to strategy for effective business transformation.
David has been assisting organisations to transform, grow and re-engineer their businesses for over 20 years, across many industries including banking and finance, insurance, financial planning, government, mining and healthcare. David has specific expertise in Strategy, Leadership, Change Management, Cultural Change, Business Transformation, Process Re-engineering and High Performance work teams.
In addition, David is one of a handful of consultants who have extensive knowledge of the Australian Leadership Archetype study, a 2-million dollar cultural imprint study revalidated in 2011 that identified the specific cultural drivers that motivate Australians to engage at work. Australians can be full on 'Volunteers, Whingers or quit and stay Survivors', depending upon the leadership style deployed by leaders. Transformation and growth initiatives that are implemented in congruence with these cultural insights happen at rapid speed, whilst initiatives that are not struggle to succeed. The research also explains why many leadership and change methodologies imported from overseas, in particular from the USA, fail to resonate in an Australian workplace.
David has worked with many public and private organisations including Telstra, NAB, Sensis, ANZ, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, HSBC, Western Mining, BHP, Bupa, Optus, Department of Defence, Barwon Health, CSIRO, Parks Victoria, Department of Premier and Cabinet, to name a few. David was formerly HR Manager for Hewlett-Packard for over 10 years in a range of Senior Human Resources roles, pioneering Competency Analysis, Learning Centers and measuring the impact of HR on bottom-line business performance.
David is a highly sought after public speaker and has presented papers at international and local conventions.
