About Us

Applied Angle brings expertise with simplicity.


We listen and probe to understand your opportunities or challenges and constraints.

We shape effective approaches that will deliver the outcomes and governance you need.


Then we work with you and your people to deliver the results and build capability for the next opportunity.


We are not interested in building relationships based on dependency.  Life is too short.

Performance Embedded.


Our objective is to understand, improve and embed performance. 

To do this, practices, systems and thinking need to be developed, owned and maintained from within.

You will notice our best work in your people when we are not there.

Meet our team, below.  Contact us and we will listen and probe to work out how we can help.

Let's help people do good work.
