We build compassion at work.
Compassion Revolution Conference
A conference like no other
For five years, Compassion Revolution gathered together a groundswell of healthcare workers over two days. We met an astounding array of national and international speakers, undertook workshops and were captivated by the creative program—all set to build a compassion muscle.
Use What You Have*
A new, research-backed take on the power of compassion. Not fluffy. Not nice-to-have. Not kindness, even. No. This is compassion as a revolutionary act. A swath through bullying, blaming and exclusionary workplaces. A full stop to the many destructive practices that drive down the quality of work performance and wear away our mental wellbeing.
These are some of the many organisations we’ve worked with
I can’t thank you enough. I felt more affirmed that I am on the right path than I have felt in years. I felt as though I belonged and that I wasn’t the only one ‘going on’ about the issue of compassion in healthcare.
Physician in General Medicine
Mary Freer is a marvel: the way she brings people together to imagine new futures for healthcare is filled with energy, curiosity and joy. Mary leads from a deep understanding of healthcare as a human system. As a consumer and as a researcher I value Mary’s commitment to good evidence, and to achieving change that puts people first.
University of Wollongong
Mary is a visionary, transformative and inclusive leader who inspires and amplifies the leadership and learning of others through her work, events, and training. In a time of Covid-19 pandemic Mary was able to rapidly respond and cultivate a community of practice that facilitated deep learning and shifts in resources, mindsets and priorities to provide support and attention where it was most needed.

Mary Freer is the real deal. She transformed the way I conceptualise compassion: a muscular structure of strength best tended to with attention and delight. Anything Mary leads is a “YES PLEASE!” fri me.
Author of Show Up Hard: A Roadmap for Helpers in Crisis
Mary has been our fairy godmother, sprinkling compassion over everything she does. Whether it is conducting one-on-one interviews with Hollywood stars, facilitating small group workshops, or hosting large events she makes sure the audience knows that it is never about her, but about us, and how we can all be more compassionate

Mary is a force of nature. Her drive, passion and vision for a more compassionate world is both inspiring and practically informative. I deeply value my work with Mary, and I’m energised and learn from her every time we talk.
