Effective teamwork begins and ends with communication.
“The Hatch Advisory Group across the AEM region recently embarked on a journey to grow the business significantly, which required an aggressive business development strategy. Knowing that people sit at the heart of enabling this strategy, it was decided to use Verity Consulting’s Psychometrics evaluations as one of the tools to create more meaningful interactions, internally across the geographically dispersed team and externally with clients and suppliers.
The evaluations provide a means for the team to understand their own and others’ behaviour, and as a result prevents potential points of conflict. To date Andre van der Merwe from Verity Consulting has facilitated multiple Psychometric debriefing sessions for us. Not only have we successfully achieved the outcomes we were looking for from these sessions, but his previous sales background also abled Andre to provide meaningful insights in to how the team can practically use their learnings to achieve enhanced results with both customers and internal stakeholders.
Overall everyone gained value from this and developed a curiosity to use the tool to grow themselves and the business.”
Regional Director Advisory
Understanding your company’s strategy and specific needs allows us to contribute across a range of business activities.
“We have worked with Andre of Verity Consulting on three different senior roles and various sales roles. Each time, they were successful in assisting us to explore the market and secure candidates of the highest calibre. Their passion for outstanding service, consistent follow up and the quality of candidates produced speaks well of their recruiting process. Having a Management Consultant who understands our company’s strategy and specific needs and is able to contribute across a range of business activities is of high value to us.”
Teamwork begins with trust and communication.
“Future Fitouts has been working with Verity Consulting since 2017. Recently, Andre and the Verity team provide our entire team with advanced training on the DISC profiles to understand various personality types (both within our own team and clients). The training allowed us to understand each profile in detail, learn how to communicate with different personality types and utilize the strengths and weaknesses of our team to maximise efficiency. We were able to extend this training and learn how to identify client types in order to convert sales and handle personality differences.
The course equipped our team with the skills to identify and communicate towards different styles and was positively received by all team members.
Finding the right people in the right roles has been imperative to the success of Future Fitouts. By understanding the DISC profiles in detail, we have been able to recruit the right people, make decisions on best roles within the company, develop team members into new positions that best match their personalities, balance personalities between DISC profiles and most importantly on-board new team members very quickly as the existing team know exactly what sort of personality is coming on board and how to make them feel most welcome.
We highly recommend implementing DISC profiling as part of your recruitment process or engaging Verity Consulting to assist and provide highly beneficial training. It’s definitely a course we will be doing again to understand how our team have shifted.”

Great things in business are never done by one person. They’re done by a team of people.
“Verity Consulting supported us in sourcing and selecting the right team of Sales Representatives during the roll out of phase one of a national project. They took time and effort to understand our requirements during the brief and were able to find 9 high calibre candidates who were spread geographically across VIC. The team’s approach was that of a true business partnership and as such we have decided to utilise their services for the rest of the roll out across Australia. I would confidently recommend Verity Consulting as a reliable and solid business partner and experts within their field.”

Not only celebrating closing sales, but also opening new relationships.
“During my time as Chief of Sales at National Tiles I utilised Verity’s services on several occasions in the past, usually in the areas of sales optimisation and recruitment. Regardless of the specific Consulting Partner used at the time, I have always found the Verity team to be commercially savvy and intuitive, able to diagnose the exact underlying need and recommend a solution that is simple, yet compelling and accurate. Each recommendation has always been followed with a rapid course of action, delivering beyond the required results on each occasion. I’d highly recommend Verity to any other Exec. looking to utilise the services of a management consultancy.”

Understanding our customers – deeply and genuinely – in order to serve them.
“Andre and his team has completed a number of projects for us at Stratco over the years. What’s impressed me on each occasion, is his ability to quickly gain an intrinsic understanding of our core requirements. Along with the soft factors not contained in a position description, whilst keeping in mind the team dynamics, overall strategy and commercial impact of each role. As a consequence of this he has connected us with some outstanding talent and I’d happily recommend him to any organisations looking for similar results.”
