Prior to Nous, Conrad was a strategist at Australia’s largest social enterprise, Goodstart Early Learning. Here, he learned the inner workings of a large services organisation, developed an even greater respect for front-line professionals and experienced first-hand the role of culture in landing transformational change. Preceding this, Conrad consulted for Deloitte across its social impact, health and human services portfolio.
Conrad also regularly performs as a professional cellist across the classical, commercial and mindfulness genres. He presented his cello yoga work in a talk at TedXSydney 2020 titled “the connection of mind, movement and music”. He enjoys taking the experimental and exploratory nature of music to problem solving with his clients.
Conrad holds a Master of Sustainability (population health) from The University of Sydney and a Bachelor of Music (cello) from The Sydney Conservatorium of Music. He founded The University of Sydney’s Effective Altruism Society.
Conrad enjoys camping on the coast in his converted SUV, being a puppy (and human) uncle, practicing and teaching yoga, hosting dinner parties and extra parmesan cheese.
