About Me

I am Casey O’Brien, Managing director of Culture Up and an avid Carlton supporter. As a passionate people leader with over 20 years of experience coaching and leading teams, I have the skills, emotional intelligence and motivation to see your business needs met, with a ‘down to earth’, people-focused, approach.

With experience in retail, finance and legal industries, I have a deep understanding of the varied challenges that come from the demands of both frontline and office work. A strong operational background also allows for the appreciation of delivering on fundamental company objectives. I am well placed in connecting the dots between what makes employees tick, and what businesses really need to succeed in building a robust and engaging culture.

I am committed to supporting your business to provide the best employment experience possible and in return, fostering an environment that has engaged team members who want to stay and perform well.

Equally, I have an appreciation of the increasing expectations on businesses and leaders to balance competing priorities of growth, sustainability, and compliance. All whilst attracting, retaining and motivating a workplace of highly engaged people.

My role and involvement within your business enables your workplace to focus on what it does best, whilst I provide additional resources, advice and expertise to elevate your culture to where you want it to be.
