About Us

In 2005, Trevor Wienert set about achieving his vision of creating an environment where like-minded HR and OD professionals work in their chosen areas of passion and specialisation and share that expertise across a range of organisations.

Joined in 2008 by Joanne Woolley, APS has over the years built a strong team of consultants who are actively engaged in delivering their best to a vast number of industries.

APS is equipped to provide an extensive range of services from small scale projects to major organisational change initiatives.

We are recognised throughout Australia for our sound judgement, strategic advice and proven success in implementing practical people solutions to complex organisational challenges. Our reputation is for getting the job done well and without fuss – it’s not about us, it’s about you.

We are a team of Human Resource and Organisational Development specialists drawn from the cutting edge of industry. We are dedicated to working with you, in your business, to design and deliver practical people solutions that achieve sustainable organisational effectiveness. Our relationships are collaborative; we won’t walk in with an assumption or a prescription, we work with you and your team and together deliver results.

We stay the course; our commitment extends from design through delivery to review. Our clients say that it’s our ability to do, not just advise, that sets us apart. That’s why we’re there, making a real and tangible difference. That’s what motivates us and where we derive our sense of achievement.
