The words I would use to describe The Zalt Group’s Better Conflict Workshop are: Strategic, Best Practice, Enlightening, Relevant, Amazing & FUN!!

Workplace Relations Project Manager, Worksafe

I recently attended The Zalt Group’s Better Conflict workshop for HR Practitioners. Zandy has impacted my confidence to deliver successful, appropriate, tailored and value-add support, advice and coaching to the business during difficult/ unique situations. I now feel ready to go and excited for the challenges that await me instead of fearing them. Thank you Zandy, very impressive!

Jessica Goodwin
HR Business Partner

The ZALT Group conducted a site-wide Health Check after a number of concerning indicators presented. Working closely with the ZALT Group and their discerning insights and analysis we formulated a very definite process for the much-needed culture change that we have implemented over the past eighteen months. The ZALT Group have supported all of my managers to make brave decisions and take action with confidence.

Zandy supported the implementation of a number of recommendations including working closely with my leadership team to ensure a consistent approach and improved outcomes relating to difficult conversations. She skilfully engaged them to overcome their discomfort and buy into the approach on a personal, employee and business level. She has considerable skill in providing the strategy to change both the overall culture and impact individual cases and has supported and up skilled my managers to make the changes necessary themselves.   Almost two years later we continue to focus on our culture and engagement and there has been a tremendous improvement with managers now taking full responsibility for the culture in their teams, the teams themselves are motivated, job satisfaction scores are consistently above 80% and challenges are being effectively managed before they grow.

The ZALT Group’s involvement and thinking in assisting my team and drive this change has been invaluable and I would have no hesitation recommending them for any prospective engagement.

Our team attended The Zalt Group’s Better Workplace Conflict Workshop. It gave me a great insight into what I do and what I can do to empower management competence. We loved the space Zandy created for discussion and shared learning that will allow us to be more consistent in our approach. I highly recommend teams attend this training together.

Tony delivered Workplace Investigation Training that was practical, thought-provoking and highly engaging. It really enhanced my skill set but what really made a difference was the way Tony helped to shape my thinking and approach to conducting workplace investigations. This together with Tony’s engaging delivery where he shared lots of great examples on point meant that this training was highly effective for me.
Michelle Nolan
Human Resources Manager at Catholic Ladies' College

I attended Workplace Investigation Training delivered by Tony. As a result I developed better knowledge, skills and importantly, better judgment as a workplace investigator. Tony’s style is engaging and thought-provoking and his depth of experience and knowledge mean you are always learning. I also appreciated the support that Tony freely provided to me when I conducted a complex and detailed investigation soon after. Great training and ongoing support. Thanks!

Zandy is a pleasure to work with and operates extremely professionally.

The ZALT Group provided a fantastic course specific to my team of HR professionals. It was an informative, interactive course that has had a direct impact on the way we are now viewing and managing conflict. The practical workshop provided my team with the confidence to approach and lead conflict resolution and investigations. Tony and Zandy have an energetic and engaging approach based on real life examples and practical tools.

I recently attended an interest-based negotiation professional development course run by Zandy. I was so impressed by her communication and facilitation skills that as a recruitment manager, I wanted to offer her a job there and then! She engaged all our senior managers and created a comfortable environment for all to contribute. I recommend her without hesitation.

Heather Hill
Senior Talent Acquisition Manager, Aegis Services Australia

Your ability to make the content relevant to our business was great. The course will make a difference in my day-to-day management, and has made me think quite differently. I will use this new information immediately.


Regional Manager, Spotlight

A big thank you for your session. I loved it and thought it was perfectly pitched for our leadership group. I have had positive feedback from the leaders and that’s pretty amazing. We would love to have you back on another topic later in the year.

The ZALT Group provided engaging outcome-oriented training which empowered and up-skilled every participant. The conflict framework presented genuinely shifted my thinking. This is an essential course for HR and anyone managing conflict.

Sharni Kelly
HR Business Partner at EY

I attended an outstanding two-day course run by The ZALT Group. My thinking was challenged and I developed new skills that I could put to use straight away. Zandy’s delivery was engaging and full of insightful, practical examples. Tony’s delivery was well-balanced and his legal knowledge added a sharp edge to the proceedings. HR practitioners and their businesses will benefit enormously from this engaging course.

Nigel Smith
Global HR Manager, Global Corporate Challenge

The ZALT Group facilitated training for our Regional Managers and Area Managers at Bakers Delight. The sessions were dynamic, thought-provoking and allowed for reflection of how managers were operating in the field. One manager said “before the session, I honestly thought some of my franchisees were poor communicators. Now I realise it’s me! I need to change my approach for better results!” All participants are keen to implement their renewed mindset and the practical ideas presented.

Andrew Pajic
Operations Training & Development Manager, Bakers Delight

Tony is an outstanding presenter on People Management. After an in-depth consultation, he developed a program for our executive team to support our change strategy and lock in an effective medium-term plan. Tony has a terrific understanding of the NFP environment and the risks associated with managing change.

Ray Blessing
CEO at TaskForce Community Agency

Zandy was an outstanding facilitator of a team in crisis and conflict. Defusing the tension, she effectively managed a government team with religious and cultural sensitivities. She used these differences to facilitate a non-confrontational self-assessment of their communication with each other. The changes were immediate. I look forward to working with Zandy again in the future.

Maria Dimopoulos
Managing Director, MyriaD Consultants

Tony is highly knowledgeable in all areas of employment law and is very attentive to the needs of our organisation. He provided outstanding and sensible advice to our senior management during some very difficult situations. He is reliable, trustworthy and knows how to deal with clients in the best possible way. I would highly recommend Tony to anyone who is seeking a superb, talented professional.

Dvir Abramovich
Chairman, Anti-Defamation Commission

Zandy was recommended to me to support a breakdown in relationship with a team member. She effectively facilitated a number of difficult conversations. Through her probing style of questioning, she was able to quickly get to the root of the problem and have both parties commit to new ways of dealing with each other. Zandy has real insights into human relationships, communication breakdowns and getting to the heart of issues.

Lisette Gibson
Facilities Manager, Melbourne & VIC Region, First State Super

I went to Tony with a multitude of questions on staff engagement and practice management. Tony very quickly helped me identify the real issues and take immediate action. This was a major breakthrough for me personally and professionally. Although I was the one making decisions and implementing change, he helped me uncover what it was that needed the change.

Boaz Gilboa
Director, Back on Track Osteo

Tony was extremely professional, expedient and discreet in handling a sensitive matter for us. He has also provided proactive assistance since that engagement and I highly recommend his services.

Cameron Stirling
CEO, Synergistiq

We engaged Zandy to conduct a difficult mediation with a team in conflict after a complicated investigation. Zandy quickly built trust with all parties and helped them open up and be honest. She engaged the parties to commit to resuming working relationships and a shared behavioural framework. Everyone gained from her involvement in the discussion. As I said to her at the time, Zandy is “a gift from God.

Michelle Terracciano
National Sales and Operations Director, Jenny Craig, Australia and New Zealand

I greatly appreciated Tony’s assistance recently. He helped us with a sensitive matter involving a complaint from a staff member which was escalated to Board level. Tony dealt with it quickly and professionally and I was very pleased with the process and outcome.

Gina Lyons
Board President, Hepburn Health Service

Zandy Fell recently spoke at our International Women’s Day event for Women in Resources, Victoria. She is a powerful and dynamic speaker who succeeded in coaching our participants through how to influence and negotiate careers within the resources industry. Our participants’ feedback was unanimously positive. I highly recommend her as a keynote speaker and would be eager to engage her again.
