ABOUT US

WE BELIEVE IN THE HUMAN, SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC / COMMERCIAL VALUE OF CREATING GREAT WORKPLACES, SO WE’VE CREATED SUCCESS THROUGH PEOPLE TO BE YOUR RESOURCE, YOUR GO-TO POINT, YOUR SUPPORTER, AND YOUR COACH…. TO HELP YOU AND YOUR TEAM BUILD AND SUSTAIN THE BUSINESS YOU’VE DREAMED OF AND DESERVE.

The Success Through People team has more than 60 years combined experience supporting businesses and organisations with their “people stuff”.

Greg left a senior corporate role in 2007 to start HR Success, a small HR consultancy focused on supporting SMEs in Western Sydney. Recognising the limited opportunities for smaller businesses to access quality training for their teams, Greg also launched Short N Sharp Training in 2011.

While HR Success and Short N Sharp Training continue to support businesses with their recruitment, compliance, general HR and staff training needs, it has become increasingly apparent that many SMEs are craving a different level of support: support to build dynamic and highly-engaged teams that work together to achieve a level of success that ultimately benefits all. It is out of this insight that the original 8 Elements to Success through People© Model was born.

After successfully partnering with clients to apply the model in a range of industries over the last 10 years, we know the Success Through People© Model delivers enormous value to SMEs, so we decided in 2021 to establish Success Through People as a new brand and introduce it to a broader audience.

And so here we are: ready to help you and your business also achieve success through people!
