Ann Austin

National Sustainability Manager, Building, Lendlease

THE TIPPING POINT – THE GROWING MOMENTUM FOR CULTURAL TRANSFORMATION IN THE CONSTRUCTION SECTOR

Friday 16 November 2018, 9.00 – 9.30

Ann has worked with the Lendlease group since 1992 in a variety of project and people management roles, including CEO of the Lend Lease Foundation and General Manager of Organisational Development for Bovis Lend Lease. In 2004 she established Lend Lease’s first suite of sustainability metrics, guided by the Global Reporting Initiative framework. She is currently the National Sustainability Manager for Lendlease Building Australia, responsible for establishing a culture that supports a consistent approach to sustainability excellence in all aspects of the Lendlease business. Ann was chair of the award winning Miller’s Point Youth and Employment Partnership, was the 2003 National Association of Women in Construction NSW Vision Award winner, the 2005 National Crystal Vision Award runner up and the 2011 Contribution to Sustainability winner. She convenes the Culture and Inclusion working party for the Australian Constructor’s Association. She has degrees in Architecture and an executive MBA from the AGSM. She balances all this with mothering two delightful sons and a gorgeous daughter, regularly following the black line in a pool and launching five CDs of original songs to sing to 0-5yr olds to help them understand (and endure!) their new lives.
