• A highly satisfying, collaborative journey of discovery. They operationalised the project timeline and milestones very quickly upon their initial engagement, yet included us on the decision making process so that it was mutually acceptable. Others I have worked with in previous projects have simply not tried as hard to overcome difficulties.

  • The Culture Communication and Relationships at Work (CCRW) program and resources, used in the project made a unique and valuable contribution to enhancing the workplace participation and service delivery of people from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds. CCRW is an excellent tool, very well used by a highly competent team.

  • Fortis listened to the expertise by the reference group to identify all expectations in detail. The expectations of the reference group were fully met. I was more than pleased with the outcomes and the efficiency of delivery.

  • Few things are more satisfying than collaborating with an organisation that seeks to maximise performance and ultimately returns to stakeholders by embracing diversity, developing capability and establishing an optimal culture. That is why we love our work.
