Our Team

Our Journey


Changing Places HR Services (CPHR), now known as Changing Places Group (CPG), was established by founder Emma Walsh to provide both small business and large organisations with a range of Leadership Development, Coaching, HR, Training and Recruitment services on demand, on a freelance, retained or project-based arrangement.  CPHR was Australia’s first online HR consulting network uniquely providing businesses with free, on demand access to independent HR practitioners.


Mums At Work was the first dedicated return-to-work advisory service established in Australia for parents.   Mums At Work broke new ground for mums and dads needing advice and support to navigate and negotiate their return to work journey.  Mums At Work later expanded to Parents At Work to support not only mums and dads but also their organisations to better manage the challenges of juggling work and family life.
