Zoe Aitken

Head of Consulting & Inventiologist

Zoe’s love for innovation was ignited when she spent three years in Switzerland working in the Global Innovation Team at Mondelez, responsible for coming up with weird and wonderful ideas for new chocolate products.

Here, she saw first-hand the value of putting the customer at the heart of the innovation process to drive long-term, sustainable growth. Outside of Inventium, Zoe is very partial to an Espresso Martini.

Nick Johnston

Head of Digital & Analytics

Nick’s main focus at Inventium is to help organisations achieve their innovation missions and to drive Inventium's digital offerings. He does this by using his superpowers in technical analysis, user experience, research and application of the latest scientific findings.

As a qualified chemical engineer, Nick previously worked as a consultant in the chemical, mining and oil industries. Outside of Inventium, Nick can be spotted standing at the back of groups hitting his head on things (he’s really tall!).

Charlotte Rush

Head of Learning & Inventiologist

Charlotte is an Organisational Psychologist and innovation workshop extraordinaire. She is passionate about the crucial role that the science of psychology plays in creating organisations where innovation thrives.

Charlotte has a wealth of experience working with clients across industries such as legal, property, FMCG and government. She dreams of one day living in Italy where she will be able to speak Italian like a local and survive on coffee, gelato and pizza.

Joey Calandra

Inventiologist

Driving innovations in the pharmaceutical industry for the past 20 years, Joey cannot help but inspire new possibilities through deep engagement, and use his own brand of colour, fun and passion to bring it to life.

With an Executive MBA and Bachelor of Pharmacy, Joey loves to fuse science and creativity to develop evidence based solutions which make an impact in the world.

When not reading about strategy and innovation, Joey is either eating, planning what to eat, travelling or planning where to travel to sample diverse food, cultures, architecture and the natural beauty of the world. He might also have an addiction to shoes!

Georgia Luttick

General Manager

After studying PR initially, Georgia quickly discovered a passion for process management and creating workplace efficiencies. This set her on the path to Finance & Business Management and working with progressive and innovative enterprises, both in terms of what they offer customers, and how they manage themselves internally.

A successful weekend for Georgia is characterised by completing the Good Weekend quiz with hubby, while juggling two gorgeous (but demanding) children.

Kerry Hanstock

Chaos Controller

With a varied background centred around all things logistics and administration, it is fair to say that Kerry likes things to be organised! Her role at Inventium is all about providing project support to our clients, keeping our team in order and maintaining a strong focus on process and efficiency.

On weekends Kerry can be found checking out Melbourne’s restaurant and bar scene with her hubby who works and plays in the craft beer industry.
