Who We Are
Simon, Susan, David, Renu, and Laura are highly regarded and busy members of our Western Australian team of experienced and sought after consultants. Each has expertise in their respective fields of organisational development, learning and development and executive coaching. They all have extensive industry experience gained prior to establishing themselves as independent consultants and facilitators.
This blend of real-world experience, academic credentials, and extensive consulting experience is what clients place a high value on, and ask for, when they work with Maitland.
Most in this group have worked collaboratively with Maitland since the very early days of Maitland.
Maitland has some of the most talented and experienced external consultants delivering human resources solutions to a diverse range of clients. This includes working with government departments providing operational HR services such as reviewing and designing organisational structures, establishment services, and recruitment and selection support.
The team also works with clients to deliver meaningful and relevant training and development programs and a range of whole-of-organisation coaching programs in Western Australia.
Allen, Caroline, Brian, Sue, David, Fiona, Cliff and Claire form part of the larger team of talented and experiences consultants that form Maitland Consulting Group.
Maggie has been part of the Maitland team since 2005. She has worked on a range of training related projects in Melbourne and Singapore which included the design and development of online induction programs. Dennis initially joined Maitland when he worked with Maggie on one of the projects which required his expertise and creativity in the area of technology and web-based online learning solutions.
Maitland has operated in Melbourne for more than 12 years. Establishing a presence in Melbourne was Maitland’s first steps in expanding outside the Western Australian market in the early 2000s.
Like Perth, Brisbane is a city heavily influenced by the mining sector. However, like Perth, there is more to the city and State than mining.
Karen and John are two very skilled and talented Brisbane-based consultants with long track records in consulting and who offer Maitland’s clients a wealth of expertise. Requests for their skills include designing and delivering programs for large oil companies through to coaching assignments for mining executives and project managers of large construction projects.
As very experienced and respected coaches, and based in Brisbane, John and Karen are also part of Maitland’s Australia-wide coaching team.
Other Brisbane-based consultants in Maitland’s group include Silvina, Steve, and Audrey who have expertise in training and development. Steve has a strong focus on uncovering “what is really happening in your organisation and what really matters” that culture surveys don’t tell you about.
Peter and a small group of Darwin-based consultants join Maitland’s network in 2014. This meant Maitland was finally able to offer clients an Australia –wide service with consultants based in all mainland capital cities.
Peter and his colleagues have a deep understanding and appreciation of the unique issues of operating a business in the northern part of Australia. Between them they have a diverse set of skill and are comfortable consulting in the medium and small business environment, which dominates the North, along with many government departments.
Peter also plays a role at Board-level in bridging the needs of the people living in the north and the large companies who want to operate in northern Australia.
This group completes Maitland’s Australia-wide coaching panel for some of our large international and national companies.
Kris has earned many accolades during her consulting career. She is recognised as one of Australia’s most prolific published business author with editions of her books printed in many languages.
Maitland first met Kris in early 1996 when it invited her to launch the first of its many consultant showcase held over the next few years. At the launch titled “How to get the best out of your staff” Kris took the audience of senior public and private sector leaders through her “Crystal Clear” approach to communicating as a leader. Crystal Clear Communications is in fact the title of one of her many business books.
Kris continues to consult and lives in the Adelaide Hills, but travels widely within the region. Kris is one of a small team of consultants in the Maitland network that are based in Adelaide.
Sydney is where the “new” is eagerly sought out and tested by the market.
Maitland was attracted by the unique tools and approaches of Carlos when we were first introduced to him by Kerry, a fellow Sydney team member of Maitland. Carlos drew on his experience as a practitioner to develop his unique 3D tool which brings to life leadership and team members’ patterns of behaviour. It is a simple tool which demonstrates complex interrelationships within teams. Carlos then works with the team to move it forward to becoming a highly effective team.
Executive coaching is also well serviced by our Sydney team with coaches like Kerry and Olive who travel Australia for clients because their skills are highly regarded.
Sydney has always provided Maitland with some new and different approaches consulting.
Singapore and the Region
With many companies operating within the region Maitland is from time to time asked to run projects either in Singapore or partly in Australia and partly in Singapore.
Robyn is one of a number of consultants who work with Maitland who have completed their PhDs. She has many years of consulting experience as well as extensive academic qualifications which ensure her approach to coaching is based on sound and well research methodology. Robyn is an outstanding executive coach and works within the region. She lives in Singapore but studied and worked in Australia before moving overseas more than 15 years ago.
Many Australian-based consultants in the Maitland team also regularly travel and work independently within the region of South-east Asia including Cliff (Malaysia and Singapore), Ray (India), Jim (South-east Asia) Susan and Renu (Malaysia),Deb (remote coaching within the region), and Rowan (China, USA, Europe, and South-east Asia).
Like others in the team Rowan has an interesting mix of assignments where the majority of his work is either done overseas or via online technology and the occasional Perth-based project. This experience brings a valued skill to the team when clients need remote training services or specific expertise in working in mixed or single cultures in a global operation.
