Power of Community | Karl O'Callaghan

Karl was Western Australian Police Commissioner for 13 years until the end of 2017 and was formerly a career police officer having served more than 43 years. He has been awarded the Australian Police Medal and is an International Paul Harris Fellow, awarded for outstanding community service. Karl oversaw significant reform and cultural change within the WA Police Service and the softening of old hierarchical structures which also resulted in greater gender balance in the most influential management levels of the Service. 

During his time as Police Commissioner he was arguably the most well known and most listened to public sector figure gaining respect for his practical and common sense approach.  He is credited with being one of the only Police Commissioners in Australia to regularly work on the streets with frontline officers.

A passionate and engaging speaker who draws on a vast range of experiences and true-life stories to emphasise his point. His presentation includes good leadership, knowledge sharing, building relationship and positive culture change, and how communities can become powerful.


Cultivating, Curating and Caring for Relationships | Amanda Lambros

Decoding the science of relationships, this session will highlight how to build relationships from the foundation up.  Amanda explores the importance of great relationships and how it impacts on leadership, culture and community. Learn how to cultivate relationships from the inside out, why developing relationships is the simplest most effective way to create a positive and engaging community, and how to shift people from distant observer to active participation.

Leadership & Culture for Happiness | Julian Pace

Leadership and culture for happiness is a session that focuses on flattening out the hierarchy for happiness, empowering self-leadership and ensuring participants leave with a renewed sense of what goes in to being authentic.  

Happiness Co believes everyone holds the ability to create impact, but it is a choice on whether that impact is positive or not. By fostering a sense of community awareness and spirit within the residents, a strata manager can influence a strata community to be united and create opportunities for a better world.


Moving Beyond Labels I Chris Irons

As Former Queensland Commissioner for Body Corporate and Community Management, Chris Irons has seen and heard just about everything in strata. Now working as a strata consultant with a focus on dispute prevention and early resolution, Chris thinks it is time to better understand different strata personality types and ways to deal with them without legal proceedings. Using case studies and experience Chris will provide delegates with insights into why labels are detrimental and how to better approach some of strata’s most stressful, time-consuming and complex people issues.

Embedded Network Panel Discussion – Powering the Strata Community  I Damien Moran, Matt Bird, Scott Bellerby, and Catherine Lezer

Transitioning to an embedded network is a complex undertaking for both Strata Communities and Strata Managers. This panel discussion will open the conversation on how the panellists have educated, and informed strata communities on how to successfully make the transition. The panellists will share information on where to get support and where cost saving can be found to secure lower energy costs.

Building more inclusive communities with technology | Mladen Jovanovic and Rocky Hemraj


The movement for communities to become more progressive and socially inclusive is incremental but is happening. Research shows socially inclusive communities are more likely to be cohesive, empathetic and prosperous. A socially inclusive strata community is more than just providing wheelchair access ramps and braille on elevator buttons. In this session Mladen from Bindimaps will showcase new technology which will assist strata communities to provide people of all abilities with a tool to independently navigate unfamiliar spaces in and around their strata buildings.
