Executive Recruitment

There are unique challenges to recruiting at the senior level. Sourcing strong candidates from a small selection pool, persuading international talent to relocate and many more. Our strong global relationships, built over 30 years, are the reason we’ve been able to successfully overcome such challenges and maintain a strong track record of delivering results for organisations we work with.

Learning Sets

We have been at the forefront of the Learning Set model since 1989 and through this, have built the largest Learning Set network, for executives, in Australasia. An HG Learning Set is not a professional development course, it is high performing leaders sharing real and pressing challenges in a highly confidential setting. Together, with an experienced facilitator, each challenge is workshopped and solutions are devised

Leadership Development Programs

HG Leadership Development Programs are designed to help experienced executives develop the contemporary skills they need to lead their organisations through times of change and uncertainty as well as support emerging leaders to build the skill set to transition into broader and more senior executive roles.
