Nous secures debut client in Canada


Nous Group, an award-winning management consultancy operating in Australia and the UK, has expanded into a new market, securing its debut client in Canada.

The project for a large Ontario-based university will be overseen by Nous Group Managing Director Tim Orton and Toronto consultants Tim Kennedy and Tom Tyler King.

Tim Orton, who founded Nous Group in 1999, said Nous’ entry into the Canadian market was a sign of global interest in Nous’ consulting services.

“Nous has a strong track record in Australia and the UK in partnering with clients to improve people’s lives,” Tim said.

“We are pleased to extend our positive influence to Canada, where organisations are facing opportunities and challenges that are similar in some ways to their counterparts in our existing markets but also have unique Canadian characteristics.

“As one of Australia and the UK’s leading higher education industry consultants, Nous understands how to harness the dynamics that drive activity in the sector. Many leading Australian and UK universities have benefited from our consulting services, and now Canadian universities will be able to join them.

“Alongside our higher education expertise, we bring a strong understanding of human-centred design, business strategy and organisational performance, which are essential to the success of a modern learning institution.”

Tim Kennedy said the work with the university will showcase Nous’ capability and generate further interest in its work.

“Nous was selected due to our experience delivering similar projects with universities in Australia and the UK,” Tim said. “There are very few firms in Canada with our expertise. We are looking forward to working with the university and other great Canadian organisations in future.”

Celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, Nous has more than 400 staff across nine locations in Australia and the United Kingdom. The expansion into Canada follows Nous’ expansion into the UK earlier this decade.
