Meet the team

Business improvement requires a diverse mix of analytical, strategic, interpersonal and creative skills to turn potentially complex possibilities into a clear way forward. Minset’s team offers that breadth and depth of capability – including individuals and project teams having access to our full network of business specialists for bespoke requirements.

Our team’s diverse backgrounds allow us to provide an exceptional base of experience for clients. Our combined mining and resources experience exceeds 100 years across operations, maintenance, technical, port and corporate roles – complemented by experience in industries such as manufacturing, Defence and professional services. With many of our team having been consultants and clients, we offer a rare capacity to balance competing requirements from the perspective of multiple stakeholders to implement and sustain change. Together with our deep knowledge of business improvement theory and practice, and our adaptive approach, our people offer surety, confidence and excellence.

The way we engage workgroups underpins our ability to deliver for, and with, our clients. We seek to lead and develop teams through influence, not authority. Their buy-in then drives positive, long-term behavioural change. Through knowledge transfer and upskilling, those teams are equipped to take benefits forward long after our direct role may have finished. This is also where sector experience makes a difference. Our team members have an outstanding reputation for quickly establishing credibility and strong relationships with leaders through to workgroup personnel. Authentic engagement and communication, and genuine respect for client teams, become the foundation for positive results. We recognise that frustrations common to workgroups are real and must be understood and considered to make way for recommended improvements. This grounded, sincere collaboration sits at the heart of sustainable change.
