What our clients say.
“Ian Smith worked with my senior leadership team as we faced a very challenging and complex organisational change process. Ian’s significant knowledge of the change process and experience in supporting and guiding both impacted staff and their managers through what can be a very emotionally charged and draining experience was invaluable. I found Ian’s willingness to work with me in Western Australia extremely useful. Following a week of meetings and workshops facilitated by Ian in Perth, we used a combination of Skype, phone calls and email to continue working together remotely. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Ian Smith’s consulting business to any leader faced with a change management process or any challenging human resource issues.“ Liz Burke - (former) Director, Library and Information Services, Murdoch University
“Ian's expertise in facilitation ensured our strategic planning meeting stayed on track to achieve the set objectives. His highly effective facilitation and engagement techniques kept the group focused, and providedinsight into the group's composition and working dynamics as well as encouraging and enabling decision making on the topics of discussion.” Tamara Bell Director – National/International Programs - Aviation Aerospace Australia
"As a small staff team facing fast change, increased funds and new workers we were feeling the pace and the stress! Working on change with Ian was great fun and helped us all to understand each other better and appreciate the roles we played as individuals and as a team. As we worked on planning for the future we were able to operate more effectively. The VANISH staff team is looking forward to working with Ian again soon."Coleen Clare - Manager VANISH Inc
"Ian facilitated a group discussion for a documentary we were filming for the ABC. His facilitation made it possible for the discussion to run smoothly and coherently and to stay on topic. He was able to aid the participants to express their views in a constructive manner, and his contribution ensured that a deeply engaging and informative discussion took place."
