LUCY BYRNE | PENNY TERRY | HAYDEN FOX

 

See those cool cats below? That’s us, the Healthy Tasmania team. While we obviously like long walks on the beach (good for your health, right?), you’re more likely to find us out in the community, bringing together the right people to solve problems then getting the job done. (NB: If you’d like to brainstorm while walking along a beach, we can organise that.)

 

We started Healthy Tasmania because we know there are many people like you, who want to improve health, social and economic outcomes, are sick of all the talking and just want to get a project happening.... but then realise it’s really complex and time consuming and don’t know where to start. We can help.

 

With years of experience designing programs, engaging and consulting with community members, creating partnerships, sharing stories that influence and evaluating results, we've built up a basket full of skills and network of brilliant people that we can pull together to get the job done.

 

Put simply - we identify the need, build the right team, talk with communities and stakeholders, find the money, design the solution, make others care about your project, get the job done and evaluate the results. Boom!

 

Healthy Tasmania - Lucy Byrne

Lucy Byrne

Managing Director

Lucy Byrne

Managing Director

Lucy likes to be busy and get things done. She has been working in the community sector for almost 20 years. Lucy’s worked in youth justice, in local government, in higher education, research and health promotion.

LUCY BYRNE – Managing Director

Our Managing Director Lucy Byrne is the powerhouse of Healthy Tasmania. She is passionate about successful collaboration (rather than competition) to deliver projects that create crucial and lasting change (what a legend). She is a preventative health professional and an expert in community wide initiatives and will happily share her brain with you. Lucy can talk the talk with experience in high level policy development, strategic planning, has presented her research at international conferences, been published in peer reviewed literature and networks with people of influence to secure support for projects. Her favourite thing though is to walk the walk and help you form partnerships, write policy, secure funding, design programs, manage those programs, deal with the paperwork (and the headaches) and create great outcomes that she’ll proudly promote till the cows come home. Speaking of which, Lucy grew up on farm and has lived in big cities and small towns; she happily pulls on the work boots, heels, sneakers (even thongs at a stretch) for the park or the boardroom, to visit the neighbourhood house or parliament house and get the job done. Plus, she has two little people that she looks after (as well as those two below) and is currently completing a Master of Biomedical Science at the University of Tasmania. Give Lucy a call to find out how Healthy Tasmania can pull it all together for you and MAKE IT HAPPEN.

Creative Director

Penny Terry

Creative Director

Penny is always creating. She’s made it her career for more than 15 years working in local radio, marketing and the occasional live music gig. She finds people fascinating and loves to share stories that help us better understand one another.

PENNY TERRY – Creative Director

Penny Terry loves a good yarn because she knows good stories are the quickest and most effective way to make people care about who you are, what you do and why it’s important (word!). She’s spent more than a decade as an ABC radio presenter, broadcasting upwards of 20,000 stories from diverse perspectives (she’s probably interviewed your Mum).  Penny is known for her innovative approach to storytelling, listening carefully and asking the questions that don’t occur to others. She has a real knack for helping people feel heard, allowing them to confidently share their perspectives, stories and experiences in a way that makes others take notice.  She now helps people and organisations tell their stories and create their own willing tribe of advocates.  As a speaker, facilitator, mentor and MC Penny champions storytelling, drawing from the thousands of stories she’s collected and shared throughout her career to date. She demonstrates how good storytelling skills are critical along the path to influence and can change conversations from outrage to empathy and inspire collaboration over competition. Penny shows audiences how to take the fear out of contributing to public conversations as she unpacks authenticity, the science of opinions and the power of emotion and vulnerability. She always wanted to be a rockstar and now sings to her kids (and colleagues) whenever she gets the chance.  Sit down with Penny and see for yourself how many ideas she has that will help bring your project to life.

HAYDEN FOX - Project Coordinator

Hayden is a doer.  He loves working with people and you'll soon find out why people love working with him. It's most likely you'll get to know Hayden while he's organising the day to day coordination of your program (or perhaps making some terrible dad jokes over email). Hayden’s has turned his love for sport and recreation into his job (yes, he’s a clever one) and is passionate about increasing community engagement in physical activity.
