Friska Wirya is the powerhouse behind Fresh With Friska – a bespoke change management consulting, coaching, facilitation and training provider for executives, teams and businesses.
Friska’s differentiation is symbolised in its name – it’s about a fresh take. This means doing away with the old ways that aren’t getting traction and being open to exploring and experimenting with the new and foreign – whether it be culture, technology, structure or strategy. Friska helps businesses achieve that elusive behaviour change in their large globally distributed workforces.
This unique human-centred approach has seen Friska recognised as a Top 50 Global Change Management Consultant, 2022 Stevie International Women in Business Award, 2022 Australian Small Business Champion Award, 2023 APAC Consultants You Should Know and 2023 Women Changing the World nominations.
Prior to starting her practice, Friska led the digital transformation of the biggest gold miner in the Southern hemisphere, was the Global Change Lead at a top-tier engineering firm and helped Australia’s answer to Harvard execute their COVID-19 response.
Many call Friska a social media star or LinkedIn power influencer because she has grown her following by 600% in 18 months and is a highly sought-after speaker and podcast guest.
She has spoken at TEDx, Salesforce, Culture Amp, Microsoft, KBR, Asian Hustle Network and partnered with Women Leaders Institute to roll out transformational workshops around Australia.
