Leading Change Experiences was founded by Jess Keenan. Jess's diverse work experience spans Agronomy, Beef Production, Mining, Viticulture, Contracting, and Direct Sales. In 2017, Jess launched Leading Change Experiences to combine her passion for leadership, horse culture, and human development. Since then, she has served over 1000 clients in the space of leadership and life skills from varied backgrounds, including neuro-diverse children and corporate executives.

Jess has found her true calling in facilitating the growth of people and teams in business and the workplace. She brings a powerful array of leadership education tools to the table, being a qualified Equine Assisted Learning facilitator, Neuro-Transformation Therapy coach, an Emotional Fitness practitioner, and a Human Behavioural Profiling and Emotional Culture Deck facilitator.

Jess believes that everyone has the potential to develop their leadership and interpersonal skills. Emotions drive behaviour, so working on that part of ourselves is crucial. By understanding and managing our emotional flexibility, behavioral patterns, perspectives, and interpersonal skills, we can improve our interactions and relationships, enhance our leadership capabilities, and create more cohesive, high-performing teams.

Jess’s approach is rooted in the belief that self-leadership and self-agency are key to unlocking true leadership potential. Through her unique programs, she helps individuals, leaders and teams cultivate self-awareness, emotional fitness, relational skills, and effective communication. This not only enhances individual growth and resilience but also drives organisational success.

Outside of her professional life, Jess is a dedicated mother to three girls and enjoys riding horses in her spare time. She has a love for mountains, the bush, quantum physics, healing modalities, BBQs and people and their life stories. With her partner Scott, Jess is currently building a Training and Event facility on their Willalooka Farm, a unique venue for her programs and a dry-hire space for other groups to utilise. Jess’s commitment to business, leadership, and human development shines through in everything she does, making Leading Change Experiences a unique, transformative and impactful journey for all involved.
