As suggested by our name, our business is
We’re a small independent consultancy in Australia, specialising in the field of workplace change, leadership learning and building better teams. We’ve a robust track record of more than 25 years designing and facilitating innovative workplace transformation, learning and improvement processes where leadership, organisational learning and culture change are keys to success.

Some of the hallmarks of our consulting work include participative, open and inclusive processes; concept-driven, robust tools and frameworks; down-to-earth content people can readily understand; collaboration, joint ownership and skills transfer as a fundamental strategy to strengthen the internal capacity of organisations to be self-reliant and manage their own destinies.
We advocate participative, team-based work, learning-centred leadership, empowered cultures and wellbeing at work with future-focus, shared visions, distributed leadership, dialogue and connectivity as keys to sustain change and create successful business futures.
From our base in Far North Queensland and also regularly from Brisbane, we work in collaborative learning partnerships with managers, senior executives, project groups and work-teams to:
Developing leaders, energising teams, challenging the cultural status quo… Change, facilitation, coaching and consulting services tailored for you…
“When I look back on my many years as a consultant, facilitator and coach, I recognise that so much of what I’ve learned myself comes not just from my own practical experiences, but also, more importantly, from those I’ve worked with who’ve taught me so many valuable lessons about people, life and working well together…”
Hi! Bill Cropper here. I’m founder and principal of The Change Forum, creator and presenter of our programs, change consultant, facilitator, author, speaker and leadership coach. Thanks for dropping by. I hope you find our website and its resources useful. Please get in touch if there’s anything more you’d like to know or find out about…
As a bit of an introduction, I’ve been consulting around workplace change for more than 25 years and have accumulated a wealth of practical experience in strategic change management, organisational learning, leadership capacity-building, team development, culture renewal and group facilitation.
I work internally with organisations on change, culture renewal, team-working and leadership learning projects and, since the early 2000’s, I’ve been running regular public workshops around regional Queensland to foster leadership capacity-building around effective team-working, workplace wellbeing, emotional intelligence, conversational mastery, leadership, facilitation and culture change for managers, executives, team leaders and other professionals from wide-ranging backgrounds.
I’m keenly interested in the benefits of emotional intelligence, mindfulness and constructive conversations to create connective and compassionate workplaces, promote productive, open interchanges and facilitate personal growth and change mastery. These help to inform our Learning-Centred Leadership, Working Better Together and Executive Team Action Learning programs that are a regular feature of our in-house consulting activities.
I’m known for having a relaxed, down-to-earth, open style; comprehensive mastery of a wide range of facilitation tools, techniques and processes, and customarily work comfortably with people at all organisation levels – whether senior executives, operational managers, team leaders, outdoor workers or office staff. I’m also a prolific author of hands-on, user-friendly, practical toolkits, self-coaching guides and change manuals that are a feature of all learning programs we provide.
