Ross Reekie

Founder, RISE

Ross Reekie is the Founder of Rise, researchers and consultants in meaning and happiness at work. Our mission is to make work awesome for everyone by: 

1. Inspiring and giving confidence to people to find their own meaning at work   

2. Helping businesses lead with meaning and create the environments for a happy workforce. 

Through 16 years’ experience in consulting in workplaces across Australia, his academic research and personal experience, he has discovered that if meaningful work is at the centre of what we do, success follows. Interestingly, this works for businesses too. The “happiest” places to work are also the most productive, creative, and profitable. In his academic research he has developed a practical and accessible framework,‘bubbles of meaning’,to simplify the complex topic of meaning at work. He has also identified the organisational levers that bring it to life in a business context. He regularly speaks at leadership events, industry forums, and has talked on many local and international radio shows. He also hosts a podcast interview series “the meaning of work” exploring the topic through inspiring stories.  



What the Australian construction industry is saying about Sydney Build...

  • The Perfect Hire team and I thought the expo was fantastic. There was a great mix of people walking through looking at the exhibitions and we have gained a lot of quality leads due to this. We did not hesitate to sign up for the following year when approached to do so.
    Perfect Hire
  • This expo has 100 percent given us very goods leads we could follow up on. This is the best form of marketing we’ve done so far. We’ve been able to connect with leads that are usually very difficult to get in contact with. We’re definitely coming back next year.
    High Exposure
  • The show has a good variety of content including conference, summit and the exhibition itself. We got some quality leads as well. We will definitely come again next year.
  • I just wanted to say to you and the team, great job on an excellent event. I'd been in years before and this one was by far the best. You had great traffic. I was actually surprised. I'm definitely interested in a bigger speaking role next year and I'll likely exhibit.
    Tradie Web Guys
  • We got some quality leads. The show is managed by very nice organizers. We enjoyed the content and environment of the show a lot.
    Regupol Australia Pty Ltd
  • The show is excellent for the business. There’s lots of good quality people to do business with. This is also the best show we’ve ever been to.
