People Matter - it's just that simple.

People Matter has been established to help people (not just leaders) grow through coaching and development, and support businesses with their human resources related responsibilities (or as we like to say - the 'People Stuff').


We offer a flexible approach, down to earth style, and provide pragmatic advice and support. We work with you to support your growth, develop you and your team, as well as tools that will make your life as a people manager / leader as simple as we are able.

We are agile, responsive, and highly experienced. We are open and transparent in our communication and work style.


We can work with you proactively, so that your people know that you are investing in them through good systems and processes, or in response to an issue, concern or problem. 

We work across Sydney and regional NSW. We have strong networks of professionals to support businesses - from employment law specialists to bookkeepers, transformational change experts, diversity equity and inclusion, graphic designers, and safety specialists.
