Darren Hill's Biography

Darren Hill's own study of human beings extends well past his academic career, with working experience in primary industry, hospitality, education, state and federal government agencies and also small business.

Darren is fascinated by the Human race. A Behavioural Scientist and Thought Leader specialising in the field of Humanity, Darren assists organisations and individual leaders foster Human skills into their places of work for outstanding results.

Darren took over managing a multi-million dollar hotel, which magically transformed itself into a zoo after 9pm each night, again ensuring his connection with animals. With a aggregate total of 37 hours sleep over the next three years, Darren still sought change and so entered the Public Service spending the next 5 years managing a Tourism and Hospitality College and catching up on his missed sleep, usually under his desk with the door locked.
Despite this, Darren unlocked his own passion for lifelong learning and proceeded to put himself through University whilst working fulltime, resulting in a Psychology Degree and a Post Graduate qualification in Management Communications.
His unfailing commitment to seeing organisations and teams achieve success is well represented in an ongoing re-engagement rate with clients nearing 100%. Now Darren leads a charge. An important one it is too. Humanising workplaces is the new business imperative for success, and through speaking, authoring and training Darren aims to assist a new wave of leadership based on the one common denominator at work; our Human Skills.
