Senior Psychologist

Martin Levey is a senior psychologist with over 30 years of experience with Defence, providing psychological services to the Australian Army and the broader Australian Defence Organisation.
As a military officer, Martin has had an extensive exposure to Defence HR and management systems including recruiting, strategic HR planning and research, military and civilian training, the provision of mental health services and support to military operations.
Martin has seen people and systems at their best, and their worst.  Through work that has included service in Somalia, Afghanistan and the Antarctic, critical incident responses to the Bali bombing and a Himalayan avalanche and the air accident investigation of some of the worst military aviation disasters in Australia, Martin has a unique insight into human behaviour in a variety of contexts and environments.
Martin has an industry reputation for engaging and entertaining presentations.  In this workshop he hopes to stimulate thought about some of the strengths and limitations of people interacting with workplace systems, particularly the things that influence how we perceive our environment and how we understand and engage in risky behaviour.   This is a presentation for anybody who wants to better understand some of the drivers for group behaviour, current thinking on generational differences and the influence of evolution and culture on workplace behaviour.
