Background

Warren has a background ranging functions as diverse as national-level operations management, organisational development, human resource management, leadership and culture development consultancy, and executive coaching and career counselling. His expertise in safety performance improvement has been developed over a decade working with large and medium sized enterprises to help them define a pragmatic path to safety performance improvement.

“What really makes my work worthwhile is helping clients find ways to solve long-term intractable challenges that often involve deep systems realignment and new ways of thinking about human and operational reliability.”

Warren’s approach to intervention centres around gaining a deep understanding of current state and organisational capacity to absorb change; taking a thorough but pragmatic approach to program and change management; and by helping senior leaders to be more effective in their sponsorship and active leadership of any change effort.

His specialist areas of competence include serious injury & fatality exposure management, leadership development and behaviour change, safety governance and systems alignment, and the human factors associated with error and reliability.

Head of People & Culture, The Comfort Group ANZ

Warren is fantastic to work with and has exceptional expertise in safety leadership. I had the pleasure of engaging Warren to guide us through a transformational safety management project at Aurizon. He is an enthusiastic facilitator who can bring a diverse group of people to work towards a common goal.

Being a skilled educator, Warren ensured the team was well equipped to translate knowledge and insights to practical application. Warren earns my highest recommendations and I look forward to working with him in the future.

Viktor Santesson

Strategy & Innovation Leader, Aurizon

I have found working with Warren around strategies such as Safety Leadership and Exposure Reduction a rewarding and enlightening experience. Warren is quick to get an understanding of the problem at hand as well as the business context it is concreted in. Not a suited wall flower, Warren rolls up his sleeve and gets out into the operation to really understand the nuances that drive your business.

Warren demonstrates a balanced and considered viewpoint of the business world, he slips effortlessly between the theoretical and the operational views of your business he has immersed himself in. Warren also has the innate ability to get you to challenge your own conceptions of the situation.

Warren’s endgame is always to make his role as coach redundant by building up the skillsets within the team. This he does with a high level of respect, a good dose of humility and a splash of aplomb. For any individual, or team, intent on turning up the dial on Leadership or Safety the Warren is the type of guy you want in your corner.
