Key Personnel

Leigh Tyson
Managing Partner

Leigh is a passionate consultant and entrepreneurial ‘big picture’ strategic thinker who is a trusted private advisor to C-Suite within the broad Finance Sector, and has over 20 years of deep global business role and successful operational change experience.

A self-defined consultant, entrepreneur, and part time venture capitalist, with a ‘hands on’ background in all three gives Leigh a unique commercial perspective.

Leigh has an inherent drive and commitment to constantly challenge the status quo, and to work alongside you as a peer, and trusted advisor. He has the energy and skills to break down your strategic challenges and to help you think differently – and see the wood for the trees. Leigh enjoys teaming up with like-minded and bold executives to convert the complex into the simple, and the seemingly intractable into the doable.

If you need a sounding board with an independent confidant, peer advice on how to convert high level strategy into achievable business objectives, informed options on business transformation, optimal operational models, or your business change needs an authentic business expert ‘health check’ – then Leigh thrives on helping to collaborate with you on a pathway to mutual success.

He believes strongly in applying honest ‘old school’ business principles whilst taking a refreshingly innovative, direct and contemporary approach that adds value and leaves you and your business empowered.

Key Personnel

Michael Nightingale
Partner

Michael is a proactive, results driven executive consultant with over 25 years’ experience in the financial services industry.

He is committed to developing and maintaining professional relationships with all levels of a client’s business such as CEO, executive management, business leaders and senior subject matter experts.

Michael thrives on complex, ambiguous challenges that others may shy away from.

Michael has extensive experience in working with all sectors of the financial services industry, with a core focus on partnering with clients on the identification and implementation of their corporate strategy and transformation programs, specialist advice on operational capabilities, change program assurance, delivery, and where necessary project recovery.

Michael would prefer to ask the question, ‘how can we’ and believes that no question is irrelevant, as left of centre questions will often identify an unexpected solution. If you are prepared to be challenged on your current thinking and are committed to a quality outcome, then Michael will partner with you to achieve the desired results for you and your business.
