Georgina Banks isn’t your average corporate consultant.
Sydney born and bred, Georgina caught the performance bug at a young age and was acting professionally by the time she was 15. A ten-year stint on the stage and screen followed, but after doing a bit of corporate acting, Georgina developed a deep fascination with what makes people and groups tick.
Spurred by her love of learning, Georgina went on to study applied psychology. She then spent some time developing educational workshops for cancer survivors as part of a psychosocial research project at Sydney University.
Georgina leapt at the chance to work in change consulting, seeing it as the perfect opportunity to combine her behavioural knowledge and creative side. She spent several years at Primed Consulting in Sydney before moving to Somersault Consulting in Melbourne, where she further refined her unique coaching style.
Georgina was also a founding director of Spark Leadership, an innovative educational group that uses improvisation to foster peak team performance.
Her acting background lets Georgina build meaningful connections with everyone from CEOs to frontline staff. At the same time, her analytical skills and psychological expertise mean she can translate high-level HR strategies into tailored, practical behaviours that make teams and individuals thrive.
Using a mix of mindfulness, positive psychology and strengths-based approaches, Georgina helps people develop insight into their behaviours, overcome resistance and experience genuine change that sticks.
When she’s not working at Changeable, Georgina mentors young women setting up arts-based businesses and social enterprises. Her best gig is mother to Scarlet and Frederica, but she also keeps some time aside for music, literature and revisiting her roots with a trip to the theatre.
