Shaping the workforce of tomorrow, today.

We are a Sydney-based people consulting and advisory firm, specialising in giving Boards, Owners and CEOs the momentum they need to solve people risks, and build future-fit workforces for sustained performance and growth.

We’re one of Australia’s most experienced people and workforce advisors. We focus on working with the most senior leaders of people-centric, purpose-driven organisations that have ambitions to transition from the old, grow in new directions, and/or disrupt their industries and beyond.

We give our clients the peace-of-mind, knowing that their immediate people risks are being solved, the confidence that comes with clearer visibility into their workforces, and the momentum that they need to shape tomorrow's workforce at the right pace.

We believe that together, Boards, Owners and CEOs have the greatest impact on whether or not people are ready to thrive and perform into the future.

"Truly impactful Boards, Owners and CEOs leave strong people legacies – for individuals, organisations and society."

    The future depends on what you do today

    Core Beliefs

    FutureCrafters is based on the intersection of three deeply-held beliefs:

    An enabling environment

    We believe that performance largely depends on a person's environment. The right environment enables us as humans to learn, adapt and grow. Boards, Owners and CEOs hold the power to cultivate environments that are positive, empowering and set people up for their best performances of their lives.

    The age of humanity

    We believe that bringing the best of our humanity to work is a competitive advantage. To thrive, organisations must tap into the innovation, emotional intelligence, empathy, problem-solving and critical thinking of its people. As we hand-off repetitive tasks to robots and co-bots,  work must become more inclusive, growth-oriented and authentic.

    A future-led today

    We believe that by being future-led, we create the future we want with today’s actions. By making intentional future-oriented choices about the workforce, Boards and CEOs will find the compelling and rewarding way forward. Not planning for the future and hoping for the best, won’t withstand the inevitable scrutiny of the market and society.



    The best way to predict the future is to create it

    - Peter Drucker -

    We quickly learn where you are now, and where you need to be. We work in stages to narrow the gap, so that positive change is achieved in bite-sized, well-paced steps. We co-design new approaches with those impacted, and include learnings along the way. 

    And leaving you stronger.

    We take the time to learn about the people expertise in and around your organisation.  Where ever possible, we engage your people and resources, and coach them to deliver, or work with them to supplement and grow your in-house capability.
