Callum McKirdy

Speaker, author, mentor and facilitator, Callum specialises in workplace dynamics and behaviour. He has over two decades of experience helping Australasian leaders and teams leverage their uniqueness by harnessing the power of different thinking. Callum champions those parts of the workforce that are often overlooked and undervalued.

Proudly dyslexic and ADHD-positive, Callum uses his personal experiences and insights to show organisations how to think differently about different thinking.

He is the author of The HR Catalyst: A Guide to the New Practice of Leading HR (2019) and a contributing author to the Amazon Bestseller, What The Hell Do We Do Now? – An Enterprise Guide to COVID-19 and Beyond (2020). His new book, TILT: Thinking Differently About Different Thinking, is awaiting publication.

Your decision to be part of the Thought Leaders Foundation Program is a decision to be committed. Committed to learning the curriculum in less than six months.

Our Foundation Program is a 6 month program where you learn our curriculum. As well as our extensive curriculum full of videos, exercises, worksheets, we provide live weekly coaching, 12 curated weekly work plans and a community of people on a similar path to you. The cost of our Foundation Program is a one off payment of $1500 AUD (plus GST for Australian residents only). We also offer this in three instalments of $500 AUD. The Foundation Program is a prerequisite to join Thought Leaders Business School. You are able to join TLBS as soon as you have completed the curriculum.

Most people complete the curriculum in 12 weeks. Because everyone’s circumstances are different we offer you 6 months to learn. Business School is not for everyone and there is no pressure to join. You are free to leave the Foundation Program at anytime.

Thought Leaders will contact you via email and SMS to ensure you get the most out of the program. We won’t spam you and you can easily opt out.
