Alex Milinazzo

Senior Innovation Coach

What do you do at &us?

As a part of the Transformation practice, I help clients to get out of their own way and to become adaptable and innovative organisations. We work alongside clients to build and strengthen their internal capabilities for being more agile, embedding new skills and behaviours, and charging towards the future.

What do you care about most in your work?

I am passionate about working with organisations to become the best version of themselves – the version that’s often written on paper but seldom actualized. This leads to more exciting and fulfilling work for everyone.

What did you do prior to &us?

I’ve consulted with large, complex global organisations on creating and activating new missions, strategies, and cultures. I’ve had my ear to the ground conducting and analysing consumer behaviour research in the pursuit of ‘what’s next.’ I’ve managed professional mentoring programs, pairing passionate individuals together as they share insight and create community to build a more inclusive and uplifting innovation ecosystem.

What you might not know about me…

With once-held dreams of being on stage, part of my background is in theatre; including acting, producing, and arts organisation management. Those are skills and experiences I carry with me everywhere.

Talk to me about…

Activating culture. Beyond the perks and bennys you offer, culture is about how you work. Like ourselves, our teammates are three-dimensional people with ambitions, needs, ideas, and a rich perspective – how can we align our work more closely with who we are? 

Also, tell me about your favourite way to be outside. I love the outdoors!
