"Jo demonstrates an amazing ability to quickly turn around requests. She is very good at helping craft a communications framework, taking the most abstract of concepts and turning it into meaningful and purposeful content and reference guides."
Senior Manager – Large partnership organisation
“Twiga took our broad agenda for addressing literacy issues in Australia and helped us prepare a go-to-market plan based on where our products and services could make the best impact. The Twiga team is professional, accountable and delivered everything they said they would on time. They are genuine people doing genuinely good things.”
Gina Herbert – Chief Growth Officer, International online learning organisation

Andrew Hume – CEO, Early Childhood Management Services

“I can’t recommend Social Contract highly enough for any organisation. It has been so carefully put together and you are in such great hands with the maestro Jo Smyth.

How creating role clarity can help retain staff – and increase performance
Brad* loved his job but when his company merged with a competitor, his role completely changed and there were new expectations. He was told in a series of generic emails. Three months into her employment, Susan* was being asked to do more and more outside the scope of her contract.
How you can use ‘cultural liquidity’ to help find great talent
How can your business find – and nurture – great talent, even in times of uncertainty, crises and change? The secret lies with a particular balance.
Organisations with the right culture will survive, and even thrive, during times of change – and it’s not too late for businesses to adapt. We are using the lens of ‘cultural liquidity’ in our programs such Talent Pursuit by Twiga™ to create success.
