growing the oranges orchard


2021 is off to an optimistic start at The Oranges Toolkit as our team and service offering expands. New team members and a social e-Learning program are set to boost our social enterprise’s capacity to support more organisations to increase employee wellbeing, engagement and productivity levels.

New team members

Our bolstered team includes the newly appointed Head of Business Development, Jerry Andrews, who brings more than 20 years’ experience in business and relationship development at iconic organisations across multiple sectors. Jerry will be building our growing network of clients and partners throughout Australia and globally, collaborating closely with our General Manager, Tegan Davies and Head of Marketing, Angie Farrugia.

Associate Facilitator and strengths specialist Ali Palmer has also been appointed as Client Success Manager to enhance client satisfaction and ensure program delivery and success. This new role is designed uphold the wellbeing, resilience and performance outcomes of our programs and support ongoing embedding of positive wellbeing practices. Ali commences this role on 1Feb.

New board member and chairperson

Late last year, The Oranges Toolkit appointed a new chair of the Board of Directors in Kylie Sprott, replacing David Arkles after his successful three-year tenure. Kylie is a business transformation leader, with experience working across IT, financial services, engineering, environmental services, manufacturing and legal services. She’s looking forward to taking the organisation forward with a focus on growth and innovation. Also joining the board to support this vision is Damon Fealy, an experienced technology consultant and executive.

Enhanced products and services

On top of the growth in personnel, we are currently conducting a pilot of a new social eLearning platform. This innovative training platform will enable us to deliver our flagship 7 Segments of Wellbeing training program online – reaching broader and bigger audiences. Highly engaging, interactive and accessible from anywhere, the e-Learning solution is powered by bite-size videos and practical activities based on the latest scientific research.  The ORANGES segments of Optimism, Resilience, Attitude, Now, Gratitude, Energy and Strengths will be available from April as a holistic package or individual segments, delivered in small groups to support learning.

Alongside this pilot, we are currently establishing an Advisory Panel focused on product development and program measurement. More details will be announced later this year.  

New marketing tools and events, too

The Oranges Toolkit recently launched a new website celebrating its bold brand and content, with plans to release merchandise and online product sales in coming months. We are excited to have secured sponsorships of major Human Resources events including the National Human Resources Director Summit on 30 March, The HR Leaders Forum on 18-19 May and AHRI’s National Convention in August. Following the successful Mental Health Month panel event in October 2020, we will be presenting more targeted panel and forum events throughout the year.
