Head of Talent & Learning - Danone
In July 2019 Belinda decided to follow the advice she so often gave others and take a brave career and personal step. She left her role as Head of Talent and Learning at Danone Australia and New Zealand to pursue qualifications as an executive coach and to walk the Camino De Santiago – a 780km pilgrimage walk beginning on the French side of the Pyrenees then across Spain to Santiago de Compostela.
She had joined French multinational FMCG Danone in March 2016 to lead the newly formed shared services function for Talent and Learning. At Danone she curated and managed the inaugural Danone Campus Oceania in 2016 and then again in 2019. The 2019 event brought together more than 200 Danoners from across Australia and New Zealand for a week of functional, personal and leadershp development with Australian and international facilitators and introduced a number of new learning programs to Danone.
Prior to joining Danone Belinda was at IBM where she held lead roles in Recruitment, Learning and Development, Diversity and as a HR BP.
As a mother of two early career daughters she is passionate about career development and inclusive opportunities for all.
