Our People

Our people are the core of who we are. We have a team of over 30 committed consultants and a network of trusted associates and expert advisors to draw on.

We carefully select and retain staff with a high level of integrity, as the technical and interpersonal skills required to work collaboratively with our clients to produce evidence and insight for effective decision-making.

Our staff come from a range of disciplinary and professional backgrounds, including government, education and training, community development, psychology and communications. This diversity enables us to compile teams with the right range of skills and expertise to complete individual projects. Each project is overseen and managed by senior staff – from the inception to the final deliverable.

As a company, we strive to stay at the forefront of our fields and have a strong commitment to continuous professional development. Staff undertake ongoing study, contributing to peer-reviewed journals, and present at and attending international conferences, so that they can better meet your needs.
