What our clients say about us:

“Sean, I just wanted to thank you for everything you’ve done for me over the last couple of months.

When I first came to you I felt helpless and stuck. You offered me a practical solution and I can’t thank you enough for the professional, competent and knowledgeable way you approached everything.

You gave me back my voice, my hope, and my dignity.”

“A key aspect of our working relationship with ABMM is the genuine business partnership we have in place. Our experience with ABMM’s employment relations team is highly successful due to the trust, collaborative approach, their high level of expertise and the knowledge they have acquired on understanding our people, the challenges and diversity within our businesses and the Local Government environment, and ultimately the advice they provide.  The ABMM team,  in particular Sean has professionally and pragmatically guided and supported us through significant change processes, industrial and employment relations matters to ensure outcomes are the best that they can be for our organisation.”
