Nova Franklin, Principal at Meld Studios, is passionate about collaborating with others to develop, test and deliver creative ideas that positively impact people’s lives. Underpinning her approach is an understanding of human behaviour; methods designed to infect stakeholders with a sense of the possible; and techniques for designing and implementing “sticky” behaviour change initiatives.


Nova began her professional career with Andersen Consulting (now known as Accenture) in 1994 and since then has held a series of consulting and in-house Organisation Design and Change Management roles in blue chip organisations such as Westpac, Barclays Global Investors and The NSW Police Service. Most recently Nova worked as Asia Pacific Head of Engagement and Cultural Change for a complex global service company with over 100,000 employees.


In the early naughties – in conjunction with a stint as a Freelance Web and Graphic Designer – Nova completed a Graduate Diploma in Media Arts and Production at UTS. Nova has been a Registered Psychologist for over 15 years. Prior to this she earned a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Psychology and Statistics, and a Graduate Diploma in Applied Psychology from Monash University.
