We are pleased to announce the appointment of two new Principals in our Melbourne office: Angela Connors, previously operations leader at Australia’s largest social purpose provider, and Peter Wiseman, an award-winning consultant, strategist and facilitator.

The appointments of Angela and Peter brings to 27 the number of Principals in our Melbourne office, led by experienced consultant Claire Noone.

Angela is passionate about human services and ensuring policy delivers better outcomes. She has more than 15 years of experience in the sector and brings expertise in service and policy design, including implementation, regulatory compliance, service reviews, strategic planning, facilitation and multi-stakeholder engagement.

Angela previously led operations across disability, aged care and child, youth and family services at Life Without Barriers, Australia’s largest social purpose provider. She worked in Victoria’s then Department of Health and Human Services, advising government on policy and service design. She has also worked in local government and education.

“I am thrilled to be joining the dynamic and creative team at Nous,” Angela said. “I am looking forward to working collaboratively with government agencies and the broader human services sector. I am excited to continue my passion for delivering positive impacts to improve outcomes that change the lives of people and communities.”

Peter is an award-winning consultant, strategist and facilitator. He works with leadership teams to define strategies that deliver sustained impact, and to align people and operations to deliver on strategy. He has more than 15 years of consulting experience, with expertise across education, financial services, legal services, utilities, government, not-for-profit organisations and major corporates.

Peter returns to Nous after a period as a strategic advisor at the University of Tasmania. His work has previously been recognised in the 2017 AFR Client Choice Awards, where he was voted the best management consultant in Australia.

“I’m excited to be back at Nous and able to apply my time in industry to my consulting work,” Peter said. “I’m looking forward to exploring the strategic opportunities and challenges of our clients in Melbourne and nationally.”

Claire Noone, the leader of Nous’ Melbourne office, said the arrival of Angela and Peter would further strengthen the expertise Nous offers to clients.

“Few people know how to deliver quality human services better than Angela Connors, while Peter Wiseman has a fine track record as a leading organisational strategist,” Claire said. “I have no doubt that their expertise will be keenly sought by our clients in Melbourne and across the markets in which we operate. It is particularly pleasing to see Peter return to Nous after a few years away.”
