Anne-Marie Elias

My goal is to empower government, NGO and communities to leverage the innovation, entrepreneur, start up and tech ecosystem to solve tipping point problems. Develop and share methods of Collaborative Alchemy and Disruptive social innovation to produce rapid results. Drive and deliver social impact initiatives through cross sector collaboration that transform lives. 

I am passionate, committed and results driven Innovator and have been described by peers and stakeholders as “an influencer, inspiring, and a strategic thinker.” 

My expertise in government, strategy, stakeholder engagement and advocacy has allowed me to be part of the delivery of significant programs and reforms that protect the most vulnerable and break the cycle of disadvantage.

I have highly developed skills in engaging with a wide range of stakeholders including industry associations, government, corporate, NGOs and communities. 

I have extensive networks across academia, private sector, industry associations and State and Commonwealth governments, with a particular strength in leading whole of government strategies that are supported by the private sector.

My experience in politics, government, advocacy and communication has positioned me well to establish, lead and manage new initiatives in CSR and leverage cross government and sector partnerships.

I energise and lead teams to deliver excellence in change management, program and project delivery. I am highly successful in attracting partnerships, innovating responses, and skilled at influencing the use of resources beyond my control.

I am a mentor, judge, organizer and champion of start up and hackathons. A skilled media spokesperson with exceptional communication skills, I am honored to be a 2014 TEDXUltimo, IdeaBombingSydney, Digital Disruption for Government speaker and TransTasman Business Circle Panel facilitator.
