Canberra-based Kiah Consulting has in recent weeks welcomed three new consultants to its team. 

Appointed a Consultant, Isaac Reilly brings fifteen years of experience to the firm, most of which he gained at the government. More recently, he worked for Aframes Safety, a safety consultancy for high-risk industries such as mining, energy and construction, and for Agora Consulting, a boutique Canberra-based consulting firm.

Reilly is the first new starter that has come through Kiah Consulting’s newly developed virtual recruitment and onboarding process – the firm’s response to continuing its operations during the Covid-19 lockdown. “I’m excited to join the team and looking forward to meeting all colleagues in glorious reality soon,” Reilly said. 

He will focus on projects in the public sector, and will leverage his variety of roles to take a multi-disciplinary approach to solving complex problems. Reilly has a particular interest in the practical application of cognitive science, applying systems thinking to complex public policy issues and the use of modelling to identify different perspectives.

Murray Brissett is a qualified learning and development professional who has significant experience with the analysis, development, design and evaluation of formal courses within various Australian and foreign government agencies, which include the Royal Australian Navy, the Australian Army and the Australian Maritime Safety Authority. 

Prior to joining Kiah Consulting, Brissett worked at KBR, a professional services and technology provider to the government and oil & gas sectors. As a Senior Training Developer, he was responsible for the design and development of training interventions. Previously, he worked over a decade as Head of the National Search and Rescue School and two decades for the Australian Army in several operational and training roles. 

The third new hire, Jeff Andrews, joined from the fuels, oil and gas industry where he spent the last three decades at Caltex. After spending 25 years in equipment integrity, maintenance, reliability and quality as an engineer and manager, Andrews then successfully led the decommissioning, demolition and conversion of Caltex’s Kurnell refinery into Australia's largest fuel import terminal. The $200 million project began in 2014 in consultation with the local community and was completed in May last year. 

At Kiah Consulting, Andrews will focus on safety in the workplace at clients in the defence and oil & gas sectors.

Kiah Consulting was founded in 2003 by John Glenn, a former veteran of the Australian army. The 40-strong firm helps public and private sector clients with leadership (drawing on lessons from battlefields), operational excellence, project management and learning & development.
