Who We Are

Meet our Managing Director

Danielle Dal Cortivo is Kayo Consulting’s Founder and Managing Director. She is a passionate and authentic leader with a commitment to people being inspired, self-expressed and fulfilling on what matters to them.



After eleven years working within the Australia Government, Danielle moved on in search of a role where she could enhance her experience in culture, performance and innovation. She secured a top leadership role as the CEO of the former Asthma Foundation of ACT and then was invited to lead Asthma Foundation of Victoria (now Asthma Australia) – at the same time!


Danielle used her talents to transform both organisations across the areas of people and culture, HR, finance, strategy and program delivery. In addition to the organisations’ finances significantly improving, innovative state-wide programs were implemented, consumer outcomes increased exponentially, and organisational performance improved.


This unleashed Danielle’s passion for putting people at the heart of business and creating cultures where teams work, people flourish and organisations thrive.


Danielle took these skills and passion into a software start up where she led the delivery of a major software contract, successfully implementing the tool across more than 170 Commonwealth entities.
