Solving the problems that hold you
and your people back

Be better.

You know your organisation can be. 
Better at knowing your people and getting the best from them - making you more capable, more profitable and more responsible.

The Deering Group opened in 2016 to help organisations to better understand what their people do and how they can help them improve their work and their roles.

We help make businesses better through their people.  

We get the job done with expertise in Executive Leadership, Learning and Development, Training and Competency, Operations Management, Technical Writing, Quality Control and Governance.

We have decades of collective experience across the resource sectors, defence, healthcare and hospitality.  We have offices in Brisbane and Perth – and team members across metropolitan and rural Australia.  We work flexibly – on-site or virtually to make it easier for you to be better.

We're passionate about helping you.


The work we do with you will be enjoyable and useful – but sometimes a little uncomfortable – we’re not afraid of the truth.


You’ll look better, feel better and do better.


We deliver unparalleled experiences – because of our unrivalled experience.

What we do

We help organisations to be better – better at their processes and procedures, better at understanding their people in the jobs they do. 

This makes them better at doing whatever it is they do – it builds their capability, increases capacity and profitability. 

It makes them a better business, a better place to work.

How we do that

We help organisations to understand where the problems are, what they look like and how to begin solving them.

Part of our job is to be the spark that makes change.

We help organisations to understand where the problems are, what they look like and how to begin solving them.

While it’s important, it isn’t a silver bullet.

In fact, sometimes simplification just creates more problems.

So, what should we be doing instead?

What we really need more of is this idea of decomplexification.
