Amy Powell

As founder and director of Business on Purpose, LLC, Amy Powell works with businesses to achieve measurable breakthroughs in organizational culture using her whole-system approach to culture change. She draws on Conscious Capitalism principles in her work, and uses the Barrett Culture Transformation Tools to support and measure progress.

She coaches senior leaders in organizations, working closely with them as they make the transition from traditional leadership approaches to new, more conscious approaches.  Clients learn to center their leadership around purpose, with deep care for customers, teams, and external stakeholders.

Conscious Capitalism Australia’s public events featured some of Australia’s most admired companies, including Patagonia, Unilever, and Aesop.
