Sally Calder


Sally Calder leads KPMG’s People and Change team in Melbourne and specialises in culture, leadership and change management. She works with senior leaders to support collaborative leadership, build constructive and successful cultures and inform communications, stakeholder engagement, and strategy. She specialises in cultural transformation and has a particular interest in diversity and inclusion, and the value that can be drawn from cognitive technology and AI to both understand, and support changes in behaviour.

Prior to joining KPMG she worked at all three levels of Government across two States, and held senior executive roles, in complex, service based public sector organisations, including organisations involved in cultural activity. Creating healthier, more connected and vibrant communities, where opportunity, cultural expression, and inclusion are equally shared has been a focus of her career.

Sally has a long history of active involvement in the arts from both an academic, professional and personal perspective. She holds a Masters Degree in Australian Literature, and is an avid follower and collector of Australian fashion and art, a Ballet subscriber for many years, and a regular attendee at Opera, theatre, film, music and dance events.

Sally is passionate about how food, wine, books, music, art, clothing and place bring people together to experience and create a sense of cultural vitality, connection, collaboration and opportunity.
