BRIEF BIOGRAPHY - Ian Metcalfe

Director & Principle Consultant Adaptive Learning PTY LTD



Ian is recognised as a passionate and leading thinker in the areas of Integral & Creative Leadership, Dialogic Facilitation, Cultural Renewal and Organisational Change
A self confessed polymath and Maven by nature; Ian has been described variously as a vibrant keynote speaker, a thoughtful facilitator, a talented academic & Researcher, an accomplished program leader (in the finance and insurance industries), and a senior manager with extensive experience with the implementation of institutional change and organisational learning & development.
Ian says of himself: "I know a little about a lot - enough to be dangerous!" He sees his facilitation work falling into two categories: “the throwing of stones” and “the sorting of squid” - the meaning of which he will eagerly expand upon if asked.

In addition to operating his own business oriented consultancy – Adaptive Learning - Ian is also an associate member of a network of working thinkers known as Minds at Work who provide advice, media commentary, workshop facilitation and keynote speeches on creativity, innovation, problem solving and cultural change to local and international organisations.
