Growing A Project Management & Administration Business With An HR Focus In The Performing Arts Industry

Rachel Barker

Rachel Barker recently stepped-up her HR consulting business to the next level and I really love the way she’s gone about it.

Rachel helps leaders in the performing arts to successfully manage their people and create better organisations.

During the course of our discussion, I asked Rachel:

  • Tell us a little about your background and led you to launch your own consulting business? How did it feel?
  • What consulting kind of consulting services do you provide and to whom?
  • Most people who are employed in some sort of HR-related role, when they decide to start their own consultancy they go very broad and very generic. I love the fact that you’ve decided to focus on a particular niche. Why did you choose a narrow area and was it a big or scary decision?
  • What’s your advice to other consultants who are trying to find their niche or focus point?
  • What are your plans for getting new clients?
  • What do you see coming down the road for HR and the world of work and how should listeners get prepared for these changes?

Growing A Redundancy Process Coaching Business – with Jamie Getgood

As you know, we’re going through some very challenging times. People are being laid off around the world without warning and, in many cases, without any support.

Jamie Getgood

Downsizing, retrenchment, call it what you will – the whole area of redundacy is fraught with danger and painful emotion.

However, it doesn’t all have to be doom and gloom. My recent podcast guest, Jamie Getgood, has helped build strategies that have revolutionised and streamlined the redundancy process.

These strategies help protect the company from legal fallout, protect the brand from negative press, engage and support leaders and, best of all, the strategies help the people involved. These are people with families, children, mortgages and bills who need to transition through this difficult process.

Jamie helped General Motors Holden, one of Australia’s largest car manufacturers, through closure of its operations in Australia and he was a leading voice in the closure of the whole industry.

Jamie has also won several awards for his service and we discussed:
