Our People

DMV Team

Our team has always aimed to work effectively within a client’s team environment and gain a strong understanding of the client culture. This enables our consultants to understand the office dynamic and key influences such as stakeholders, reporting timeframes and pressures, skill levels, and staff experience. Our consultants are experienced in working across a range of team sizes, from individual assignments to leading working groups in the delivery of outcomes. Successful delivery requires the ability to be not only productive but also an enthusiastic team member. Our consultants have extensive experience in workshop facilitation, individual and group mentoring and performance reviews.

Culture & Community

Engagement with our customers, training and the sharing and transfer of knowledge and skills is an important element of DMV’s workplace philosophy, and a critical component of our value for money service delivery. At DMV we recognise that it is often critical to a task or assignment’s success for our consultants to have a good understanding of, and a willingness to engage with cultural, organisational and community issues our clients operate within.
