“Clim has been providing consultancy services in risk management and strategic planning for Tamper Evident on an as required basis since early 2015.
His strategic insights and attention to detail as well as balance between risk management and risk appetite has enabled me to look at business opportunities in a new light.
It has been wonderful discussing business scenarios and looking at the wider environment to create new opportunities for the business.
Clim is a no frills person, an excellent sounding board for me and is a mentor enabling me to brainstorm and test ideas in a thought-provoking and challenging manner.
I have no hesitation in recommending Clim for consultancy services in the business management and leadership domain”.
Tony Renkin, Managing Director, Tamper Evident Pty. Ltd.
“I have worked closely with Clim for the last two years in his capacity as a volunteer of The Salvation Army. He has worked with me on multiple projects revolving around the development of our leaders and managers.
Clim’s contributions have been numerous. His commitment and dedication to supporting our work has been second to none. His background and insights in the area of leadership and management have added value not just to our projects, but to individual participants of our programs.
Clim’s particular strength has been his ability to absorb himself in our culture and draw on his impressions to assist us to develop appropriate strategies that are relevant to our context. He hasn’t just developed this understanding because he has had to – he has a genuine interest and passion for this.
I have especially valued the ability to brainstorm around key issues and challenges with Clim, and take advantage of his valuable insights and innovative ideas to help move our projects forward. Clim’s involvement in our leadership and management programs – including a strategic focus workshop and our TRANSFORM leadership Development Program – has made them better and stronger than they otherwise would have been.
Clim is not a volunteer, or a consultant, or an employee. He is a highly respected member of the team who has built positive relationships not just with his immediate team, but with all key stakeholders. I would have no hesitation in recommending Clim as a valuable partner to any organisation that is looking to address strategic and/or leadership issues and challenges”.
Janelle Murley, Leadership Development Consultant, The Salvation Army Southern Territory
“Clim Pacheco has been volunteering with The Salvation Army (TSA), Southern Territory since July 2013 in a senior advisory capacity whilst undertaking specific project work to inform and develop a quality volunteer engagement framework.
Clim’s extensive corporate experience in risk and change management has provided invaluable support in the presentation and acceptance of TSA’s Volunteer Engagement Blue Print by the senior executive team.
Clim has been consistent and reliable to his voluntary commitment. He is generous with his advanced skills and knowledge, and provides considerable wisdom on how to influence change. This coupled with his warm, approachable nature and ability to be simultaneously personal and professional, has made Clim a strong mentor for multiple members in our teams.
We are very grateful for Clim’s invaluable contribution, and would highly recommend him as a mentor and/or consultant”
Penny Aquino, Territorial Volunteer Resources Director, The Salvation Army, Australia Southern Territory
“Clim has worked as a consultant with IBSA throughout 2013- 2014 on a number of Industry and Government projects and also participated as a member on the National Project reference group.
We found his work to be of a high standard, very methodical and he brought forth great sector insights and expertise which was invaluable.
His interpersonal skills and mentoring skills were of great strength and refreshing to the projects and to his work.
It was a pleasure to have worked with Clim and highly recommend his work and his ability to build on great relationships and transfer his knowledge & expertise. No project is too hard!!!”
Demmi Paris, Industry Manager- Innovation and Business Skills Australia (IBSA)
“Clim is the very definition of a business professional. I know very few people with the drive, social conscious, desire for success and comprehensive knowledge of bringing business opportunities and people together.
As a creative business thinker, Clim’s strategic insights and leadership is instrumental to his success. He brings a rare set of international skills and experience in challenging industries such as transport and education. From project management, strategic and risk management and executive-based mentoring, I have had the privilege to work along side Clim in many successful client interactions.
I strongly recommend Clim for any tasks requiring such important business skills”.
Mark James, Manager- Australian Institute of Company Director
“My role is to facilitate a new era of learning and development for all levels of Salvation Army personnel in Southern Australia (this exceeds 10,000 people). We are seeking to establish a culture – and associated programs and procedures – that allow all our people to be supported in targeted growth activities.
Over the past year Clim has engaged with me and members of my team on a weekly basis as we develop and implement our strategies.
Clim’s high level background in a range of industries, including leadership education, has been a significant resource to us. He has been variously a companion on the journey, a sounding board, a mentor, a critical friend, a source of new ideas, a presenter and an encourager.
We greatly appreciate his input up to now and look forward to an ongoing relationship”.
Jim Weymouth (Major), Coordinator |Catherine Booth College, Director|School for Learning & Development, The Salvation Army, Australia Southern Territory
“Clim was instrumental in driving the cultural change at ANZIIF to a more project management based philosophy. It was my absolute honour to report directly to him while he headed the Project Management Office (PMO) at ANZIIF.
I honestly could not have asked for a better manager/mentor. Clim was not only a project management expert, he was also an inspiring coach and consultant to project leaders and teams.
I was particularly grateful for the 3 month mentoring program with him when I was at the cross roads of my career and felt a little stuck.
The advice and activities that Clim designed specifically to my needs brought clarity to the situation and gave me the confidence to pursue my goals in project and change management.
I still turn to him after all these years for career and professional development advice.”
Leanne Duong, Manager Project Management Office (PMO), Australian and New Zealand Institute of Insurance and Finance
“Clim- Just a quick note to say many thanks for being my mentor in 2013, in my new role. You provided me with the insight, knowledge and the support I required to tackle the new job role, be able to fit the pieces together as to “who’s-who “in the Financial services sector , but also giving me the confidence to settle in applying the learnings to my work.
Many thanks… couldn’t have started on a positive without your help”.
