We welcome our recently appointed CEO, Greg Elphinston, who started with the organisation in January.

Greg brings experience from a diverse and international career to Hear and Say. Through his work as a social innovator and instigator of the UNESCO Mobile Learning week, Greg has been influential in the creation and adoption of mobile technology for health and education in developing countries.


Greg has contributed to social change in a wide range of settings, from youth employability in Latin America, to remote learning across Asia and Africa. He values partnerships, and has held executive roles in the corporate, government and not-for-profit sectors.

Greg reflected on the journey ahead for Hear and Say his strategic plans for the organisation.

“In the short time I’ve been here, I’ve been able to see the profound impact of Hear and Say’s work on the lives of children and their parents and siblings,” said Greg.

“It’s beautiful to see a parent’s love for their child in those moments, and their pride in the progress they make in those early years,” he said.

“I know a lot of our supporters have been able to experience those moments and I am looking forward to welcoming them back to reconnect in person, as COVID-19 eventually recedes from our daily life.”
