  • Matt Perry, Sustainability Communications Expert, and
  • Robin Mellon, Green Building Council Australia, and 
  • Pete Tickler, Greensense and sustainability tools at work in the finance sector.
The AusLSA Symposium is once again taking place the afternoon before the ALPMA Summit: Leading the New Normal. Summit delegates are encourage to travel to Sydney a little earlier and attend the AusLSA Symposium.

Guest speaker
Matt Perry
Chair, Centre for Sustainability Leadership
Director, Centre for Social Impact

Matt Perry has recently joined The Centre for Social Impact as a Director, Marketing & Engagement. CSI brings together the business, government, philanthropic and social (not-for-profit) sectors, in a collaborative effort to build community capacity and facilitate social innovation.

In 2008 he co-founded Republic of Everyone, Australia’s most prominent and well regarded sustainability strategy and communications company.

Robin Mellon
COO, Green Building Council of Australia

Robin currently steers the GBCA's policy and strategic agenda at local, state and federal government levels, talking with each and every agency to achieve those goals, as well as providing strategic guidance to the GBCA’s Business Services teams including Marketing, Communications, Operations and Human Resources. He teaches Green Star courses around Australia, represents the GBCA on sustainability committees and regularly presents at national and international conferences to encourage the industry towards better practice. 

Pete Tickler

Co-Founder, Greensense

One of the keys to a more sustainable working environment is access to feedback. Pete will discuss the importance and value of well presented, relevant and timely information as a tool to drive awareness and behavioural change and then chat through how one of Australia's big banks is tackling the issue.

Greensense is a global leader in the development of software that uses real-time data on resource consumption to help our buildings engage their occupants in an ongoing "conversation" around sustainability.
