The Future of Work Collective is an innovative self-managed boutique consultancy of senior corporate professionals who radically reinvented their own ways of working.
We are not traditional consultants but rather catalysts and guides co-creating your self-directed journey. 

Our purpose is to transform corporate culture for a brighter future for all. 
We catalyse innovation teams to adopt more effective learning, collaboration and leadership practices based on a culture of authentic trust and human connection.
We are NZ-based yet work with globally distributed catalysts connected through our shared passion about the human element at work. 
For our projects, we curate the best people locally and globally who all authentically practice new ways of working in their daily life. Get to know us below.

Our Catalysts

Our catalysts have over 150 combined years of experience in new ways of working across the globe and regularly work on projects together. Formed, normed, stormed, performing for you.


Sandra Otto

Drawing on 30 years of international experience in high tech, strategy, innovation, learning and transformation, I love uplifting individuals and teams from startups to corporations. As a futurist, I believe in new paradigms of work, business and economy that lead to prosperity for all people and our planet.

I work remotely from Waiheke Island whilst I also teach yoga, swim, read, cook and garden.

My practical experience in new ways of working comes from being an Enspiral contributor, an Associate of HYPR, an SAP Alumni, an active curator in the Connectle Community and a solopreneur pioneering an intellect+intuition-based innovation consultancy.

Lani Dodds


My happy place is using human-centred principles and systems thinking practices to take people on a journey to reimagine business with people at the centre - because when people thrive, businesses thrive. 

I created my Mucho Aroha ltd for the purpose of making the way we work together more inclusive - so work works for more people. And I help businesses use culture as a marketing strategy.

I am a solo mum of two amazing daughters who teach me a lot about myself and how people flourish.
