Australian Team

TODD WARNER, Founder

Todd founded Like Minds Advisory as a gathering place for people who are dedicated to impacting social systems, changing how work gets done and developing great leaders. 

He believes that the gap between the vision held by senior leaders, and what people actually do, day-to-day is vast, and becoming vaster.  LMA was founded with a view that organization’s current approaches to learning and leadership development are stuck, and need a new direction.   He is passionate about initiating this change.

Todd has worked globally with Executives from multiple sectors  for almost 20 years.  Over his career, Todd has worked in the boutique Executive Development space globally, headed Learning and Leadership Development for BHP Billiton, and has sat on the Executive Committee for Duke Corporate Education.  Todd’s expertise in Learning and Leadership Development has been recognized by awards and publications across the world.
