Presented by Carli Saw

Growing up in a family with two parents that ran their own small businesses, Carli saw firsthand the difficulties they faced.
Her HR career began 25 years ago after completing a Bachelor of Business with a major in Human Resources, working for large companies where I gained experience across various industries, including IT, building and construction, oil and gas and automotive.

Carli found one of the most rewarding roles was as HR Manager for a business with less than 50 employees, where she was able to work with the leadership team to build a solid foundation for the management and engagement of their employees. So, in 2013 when she decided to start her own business, Carli's focus was on bringing her HR experience to small businesses that do not have in house HR support but still have the same issues to face around the management of their people.
