Faculty and Affiliate

Kate Craw­shaw is an expe­ri­en­tial learn­ing design­er and facil­i­ta­tor and Chief Expe­ri­ence Offi­cer at Seri­ous Woo, an expe­ri­en­tial learn­ing com­pa­ny based in Mel­bourne, Aus­tralia. She works with organ­i­sa­tions to devel­op learn­ing cul­tures through an expe­ri­en­tial learn­ing lens that fos­ter growth and man­age risk. She is on a mis­sion to sup­port lead­ers to hold bet­ter con­ver­sa­tions at work, so they can cre­ate sup­port­ive, psy­cho­log­i­cal­ly safe envi­ron­ments for their teams to thrive and innovate.

Her career has focused on the devel­op­ment of change and learn­ing pro­grams in both organ­i­sa­tion­al and con­sult­ing envi­ron­ments includ­ing; British Sky Broad­cast­ing, WSP Glob­al, British Tele­com, Aus­tralian Fed­er­al Depart­ment of Health and Age­ing, ANZ Pri­vate Bank, Asahi Bev­er­ages, Vic­to­ria Police and Minter Elli­son Lawyers. She has also worked as a lec­tur­er for Toulouse Busi­ness School and the Euro­pean Com­mu­ni­ca­tion School.

Through­out her career, she has been frus­trat­ed by the lack of “stick­i­ness” and ROI of cor­po­rate change and learn­ing ini­tia­tives and is for­ev­er grate­ful to be intro­duced to the pow­er of expe­ri­en­tial learn­ing. She firm­ly believes that expe­ri­en­tial learn­ing is the bridge to pur­pose­ful learn­er dri­ven devel­op­ment and change. Kate is pas­sion­ate about the cre­ative pow­er of robust com­mu­ni­ties whether in or out­side the work­place and is involved in var­i­ous visu­al arts and the­atre projects in her home in the moun­tains in Vic­to­ria, Australia.
