Meet our team
engage consulting group has grown and evolved over the last 18 years. We certainly understand how businesses start, grow, mature, divest, invest and reinvent. We first started as a dot com business creating a customised on-line survey system. We morphed into a management consultancy, added a financial planning arm, divested it and reinvented ourselves into an IT professional services start up. We built the IT professional services business from a start up to a mature profitable business and sold it to an ASX listed company.
Now, we are strategic advisors, mentors and angel investors for Australian businesses helping them reach their true potential in a sustainable manner. Sarina and Sam combine their marketing, people, commercial, IT and engineering backgrounds to create innovative, inspiring client engagements.
