Learn More About Sally Healey

Sally Healey is the CEO of Career Development Centre and  has spent over 30 years working extensively in leadership roles within the corporate and SME sector.

Within these roles she developed a special interest of addressing organisational culture transformation and employee wellbeing.

In 2006, Sally took the courageous step of commencing a Registered Training Organisation that she successfully ran for 12 years. The organisation specialised in training, consulting, and program development for organisations and employees. Programs trained included counselling, career development, leadership and coaching and mentoring at Diploma and Post Graduate level.    

During this time Sally was an active State Committee member of Australian Council for Private Education and Training and an advisory member of the Skills Industry Reference committee where her role included advising on training product development to ensure skills met future industry needs.

Collaborating with organisational leaders and employees throughout Australia , Sally identified an inextricable link between workplace culture, career choice and mental ill health. At this time Sally knew she had to be part of a team that focused on driving workplace culture transformation that would provide a sense of psychological safety combined with mutual respect and trust for all employees. 

Sally sold the training company in early 2018 and wasted no time pulling together a team of like-minded colleagues who together commenced Career Development Centre and Mentally Well Workplaces which now operates globally.

Sally holds post graduate qualifications in Counselling, Career Development, Leadership and Strategic Management.
