Strategy and consultancy with a practical edge

The speed of digital transformation in today’s globalised and
hyper-connected society means that most organisations are facing an ever-widening skills gap. HR and L&D can facilitate business transformation, drive behaviour change and develop a continuous learning culture.

We can help you create a learning strategy that identifies the skills the organisation needs and assess the status quo. We advise on how to bridge the difference. But we don’t just say it, we define and measure the outcomes.

Straight talking. Clear thinking.

Learning as a supply chain problem

Today’s employment market means it’s no longer possible to hire and fire your way to competitiveness. Instead, you need a learning architecture to act like a production line for talent and a generates a supply chain of skills.

The pathway to learning maturity begins with a decentralised learning infrastructure focussed on tactical and reactive training: a proliferation of learning activities, driven by subject matter experts. The destination is a consultative and agile learning organisation, aligned with senior leaders, and focussed on developing capability.

Our work

Bronze Medallion

Using innovative ‘push-to-talk’ technology, we developed Surf Life Saving’s now award-winning blended learning project to boost the confidence and key skills of lifesavers across Australia.

Value my skills

We partnered with TUC’s unionlearn to create an online digital card game that allowed individuals to identify, assess and develop their transferrable skills using a self-generated action plan and inbuilt reflection.


Saffron’s serious game-based simulation helped learners identify the core issues of resource governance. Deemed the ‘Grand Theft Petro’ of digital learning, the experience challenged the audience to navigate, advise and negotiate through a complex situation in the fictional nation of ‘Petronia’.
