About Us

We’re here to help you bring out the best in your people and systems.

Every organisation and the people within it have extraordinary potential to thrive. We believe the key to tapping into this potential is to cultivate environments where we can learn and improve, treat people as human, and incorporate system improvements to better support operations.

Southpac International is a contemporary training and consulting company focused on improving work. Our aim is to help organisations move off the plateau of performance, improve safety and simultaneously enhance outcomes across all other areas of business. We do this by exploring perspectives and beliefs, facilitating learning and insights, creating engaging spaces, laying foundations to build confidence and capacity and translating theory to application.

Our team are specialists in Human & Organisational Performance, Management Systems and Leadership – providing expertise in all three areas as needed to achieve the best possible outcomes for our clients.

We like to do things differently, and we’re proud to be the first company to introduce Human & Organisational Performance (HOP) to Australia and New Zealand.

We work with each organisation to understand how work happens and guide decision makers to reflect, learn and grow – harnessing the potential that already exists within its people. Because of that, we can offer a unique perspective and a more organic approach that drives more sustainable results.

Who we work with

What our Clients say about us

As part of a new Global Safety Strategy, CHEP wanted to move to a more bottom up approach to safety, where those closest to the risks would have the opportunity to design systems of work, that allow them to perform at their best. To help us on our journey in the Australia and New Zealand region, CHEP engaged Southpac to provide expertise in how to take the necessary steps for lasting cultural change. Form our very first meeting, we have found Southpac to be an excellent business partner. They have been very responsive to our needs and have been able to provide the right guidance and assistance. Southpac have the resource and ability to help us create a new future for our work teams, through a learning organisation framework.
