What other people say:
Max Dumais is remarkable at getting people to fire-up, stretch, and perform amazing things with their most undervalued and underused human resource – their thinking process. He can help you and your team get ideas and work them into something powerful in ways that can changes lives, shifts ideological mountains, turn organizations around. Steve Marshall (deceased), Former Chief Executive, Dept. Education and Children’s Services, South Australia

Max has brought valuable experience as both a former officer and Mayor to our community consultation process. The electronic meeting system has been a vital aid in helping us to involve people at all levels in setting our Social Justice Principles, specifying functions for our Global Learning Village and in forming our Neighborhood Character studies.  Frank Dixon, Former Director, Strategy and Organisation Development, Hume City Council, General Manager of the City of Launceston and former CEO, City of Maroondah.        

When we started our thinking about an Innovation Centre of our own, we came across Max and his marvellous ‘Zing Thing’. He really moved us along. Carmel McCarthy, General Manager, Business Development, Kangan Batman TAFE

Thinking with Max, our people came up with more ideas in less time than we ever thought imaginable.
