The founding partners, Greg Smith and Peter Bowen are highly regarded industry experts in enterprise resource strategy, planning, career transition, assessment and development.

This is what we stand for
We are passionate about working creatively and collaboratively with organisations and individuals to co-construct fit for purpose HR solutions. This approach underpins our consulting approach that ensures our clients truly see change work.
We are a vibrant, client and solution focused team of specialised HR professionals with deep discipline, consulting and broad commercial experience. Specifically, we provide contemporary, practical & value-driven HR solutions that complement and link to client strategy and business plans. Importantly our HR solutions correlate directly to superior shareholder returns.
When you engage us, you will see that we keep things simple. We will be honest, reliable and genuinely interested in who you are and what you need – we will give you an experience that the others won’t.
deliberatepractice was established in 2010 to provide practical, value adding specialised HR services for our clients seeking to improve, grow and develop their business. We are passionate about working positively and creatively with clients to provide better business outcomes through fit for purpose HR IP, process and the best people. This approach underpins our consulting framework that ensures our clients ‘see change work’.
deliberatepractice is explicit about assisting organisations and individuals to change and boost performance in a way that systematically stretches organisational and individual limits. Our services span across all business cycles from downsizing/rightsizing to consolidation and growth and extend across the entire career life cycle spectrum from the inception of people strategy and processes through to the identification and assessment of people risk, potential and development.
deliberatepractice had its genesis in the founders’ passion to fill a gap in the market in providing a true collaborative consulting experience that provides a demonstrable return on investment for our organisational and individual clients. Our underpinning guiding philosophy holds an expectation of success and progress in a context of striving to continuously do things better.
The very spirit of deliberatepractice can be found in the Anders Ericsson’s research on the importance and contribution of Deliberate Practice in moving toward attainment of expert performance.
