About Us

Our Story

The foundations of the Readiness complete wellbeing platform were first identified in 2018 by co-founder and elite athlete exercise scientist, Simon Kearney. With over 20 years of experience working in elite sport, monitoring and improving all the key areas of wellbeing such as sleep, mindset, hydration, nutrition and physical condition in order to achieve peak performance, Kearney saw the opportunity to apply these insights to improve the mental health and wellbeing of all Australians.

Kearney joined forces with his mentor, prominent Australian businessman, investor and sporting enthusiast, Gerry Ryan OAM, who identified Australian workplaces and schools as the key catalyst to driving large and lasting impact on the wellbeing of individuals across the country. They teamed up with experienced data and technology strategist, Paul Francis, whose expertise in delivering digital products for major organisations brought the concept of  Readiness to reality.

From these early beginnings, Readiness is now proud to work with organisations of all sizes and from a variety of industries to support them on their journey to positive workplace mental health and wellbeing.
