We do this through developing your ability to attract, engage and retain good people who can deliver on your business goals.  We'll also support you to manage those  tricky people issues  (the ones that keep you awake at night, you know them!).  Whether your HR department needs additional support, training and expertise in acquiring these skills, or whether you want to outsource the entire process to us, we will help you to achieve your people goals.   Read more ...

Customer Testimonials

Denise has proven to be a very capable and professional facilitator and educator for our business. She has helped our staff become proficient in concepts and skills that they were unfamiliar with and they now utilise these to add significant value to our business

Lees Seymour, Managing Director, Nelson Forests Ltd.

Denise is very professional in her work and has clear expectations. We consistently receive excellent feedback on her skills and ability to deliver informative and knowledgeable course material in a warm and sensitive manner. She is able to quickly assess the needs of participants and address these in her courses. The best recommendation is when our clients come back asking for more!”

Julie Varney, Director, Business Development Company Ltd.

I worked with Denise on a complex and long term project on building employment capital in the State Sector. Denise's first class mind was able to continually navigate the multi-layered facets of the project's scope across both the internal audience and the numerous agencies who were the ultimate clients for this work. Drawing on her rich experience she challenged, questioned and articulated the issues with both humour and deftness of touch. I would not hesitate to recommend Denise's work. She is knowledgeable, dedicated, bright, politically astute and great to work with.

Michael Linley, Managing Director, BrandCapital International

We wished to include an educational session within an inaugural Conference for key members of our wider Southern Regional Team. Denise was recommended to us via a local Business mentor. She matched our needs with an excellent and relevant topic. On the day - Flight delays necessitated Denise to think laterally to reconfigure her session which she achieved without compromising the value to the attendees. Well done and thanks Denise for a memorable addition to our meeting.
