Problem Challenge

Callida Consulting is here to redefine the notion of effective public sector consulting.

There’s a way of thinking that we like to call ‘The Callida Difference’. It’s an approach that has nothing to do with egos and everything to do with outcomes. It is why we’re known by our clients as the Canberra-based firm that’s prepared to roll up its sleeves to get the job done.

  • What’s the worst that can happen? No really, let’s talk about it.

    Recently Callida was involved in helping one of the Australian Government agencies road test the rigour of their business continuity planning arrangements. Business continuity planning is the process of creating systems of prevention and recovery to deal with potential threats to a company and ensuring that there is a clearly understood roadmap for ensuring that critical functions are resumed as soon as possible. A good business continuity plan mixes principles based, prior planning with common sense to help you to continue to operate after a crisis.
