John Molineux, FAHRI
I have over thirty years’ experience as a HR manager, practitioner, trainer and strategist in several organisations. Since 2010 I have been an academic at Deakin, teaching HRM to MBA students. With AHRI, I have been a Councillor for six years, set-up and coordinated the Diversity and Work-life balance network, and been involved in a wide range activities, including mentoring HR professionals. At this year’s AHRI Convention, I presented the findings of my research project with AHRI and Dr Adam Fraser on HR roles and psychological resilience. I am particularly interested in the ongoing development and professionalism of AHRI members.
Jane Tighe, CAHRI
I am a 30 year old female and currently in the role of Human Resources Manager Asia Pacific for Chromaflo Technologies, a global pigment dispersions manufacturer. I am successfully and enjoyably running all HR activities for the Asia Pacific region (Australia, China, Malaysia, Thailand, India and South Africa). I pride myself on my professionalism and would like to actively contribute to the HR Industry by joining the AHRI State Council for Victoria. I see this as an opportunity to make a real difference in my field and also inspire new upcoming HR professionals to reach their goals.
Lisa Hobson, CAHRI
I am a commercially minded HR professional with experience across Federal Government, Not for Profit, Financial Services and Professional Services industry sectors. As a HR generalist my key strengths are relationship building, communication, collaboration, strategic and analytical thinking and application. I would like the opportunity to continue as a Victorian Councillor as I want to continue to support AHRI in helping HR professionals build sustainable organisations via their people. I am also very passionate about improving the brand awareness of AHRI and building a stronger virtual presence for the AHRI networks.
Hayley Breen, CAHRI
I bring over 15 years' experience as a human resources practitioner, people manager and project manager and have worked in both not-for-profit and private sector environments. I have experience across a range of HR areas. I genuinely enjoy delivering HR solutions and will bring a positive and down to earth style to the Victorian State Council. HR is at the precipice of becoming a highly sort after career path to the C suite and above. I am a strong advocate for the Certification of HR professionals across our country which will enable those that have the necessary skills and attributes to be able to make a visible and measurable difference to organisations.
