Kelly Vennus


Kelly Vennus first joined Leading Teams in Melbourne in 2000 as an athlete facilitator whilst playing netball for Melbourne Phoenix in the National Netball League and as Captain of the Australian U/21 Netball Team. As an athlete facilitator, Kelly gained extensive experience facilitating life skills and leadership programs within schools, indigenous communities, juvenile and adult prison systems and elite sport and corporate groups.

Kelly went on to teach Health and Physical Education in a London secondary school for four years. Returning to Melbourne in 2006, Kelly took on a facilitator role at Leading Teams for two years before moving into the non-profit sector in a leadership role. Here Kelly designed and facilitated leadership development programs, anti-bullying initiatives and peer mentoring workshops, working extensively with leadership teams in schools, teachers and students.

For the past four years Kelly has worked with Principals Australia Institute. She worked closely with principals and leadership teams in schools, facilitating and establishing mental health and wellbeing policies, procedures and initiatives across the whole school environment. This involved implementing culture change strategies for leadership teams, staff and students and building strong ongoing relationships with schools.

Kelly has 18 years of experience facilitating workshops across a number of industries and is delighted to be reuniting with Leading Teams once again.

“It is an absolute privilege and honour to work closely with teams across many industries to drive team performance, behaviour and culture. High performing teams invest in their people and establish open and honest relationships across all levels of their organisation.”
