human-centred business solutions
that celebrate the individual
A Melbourne-based organisational design and development consultancy with a twist…
solutions that connect your people and brand.
Fiona Tribe, Director
White Owl is me, Fiona Tribe. As the ‘I’ and the ‘we’ of White Owl, I work independently and collaboratively with you, your teams and specialist consultants. Drawing on a background across human resources and business development, I am a little obsessed with the employee/customer connection and right at home with small to mid-sized players who continually reinvent ‘the way it’s done’.
We approach human resources from the inside-out and outside-in; designing experiences that inspire individuality, customer-centricity and creativity.
We focus on the customer experience side of marketing – where the way you deliver what you do is what sets you apart.
We are all about human-centred innovation that is geared towards getting stuff done. With a leaning towards what’s possible rather than what’s next, we show you how to create and innovate with purpose.
6 x 1.5 hour sessions over 12 weeks for a focussed transition.
2 hour single session for a specific goal or idea that needs to pop.
6 month ‘drawn down’ package for a coach in your back pocket, when you need them.
For individuals with specific development needs or tailored career pathways.
For teams that are experiencing change independently of the broader organisation.
For when you need a coach to travel alongside your own internal change program.
Design and implementation of an employee engagement and retention strategy for a national project infrastructure firm.
Design and implementation of full suite HR strategies and customer engagement frameworks for a premier start-up consulting group.

Fiona is one of the most innovative change consultants I know! Through a unique combination of commercial acumen, experience, intuition and an uncanny ability to accurately read what is going on, she designs and implements creative solutions that work. She is a passionate, consummate professional who quickly helps you define your vision and bring it to life.

After completing my Masters it was enlightening to meet someone who could help me clarify, articulate and promote what I do with renewed confidence. I have developed some amazing leadership skills from an excellent coach – and enjoyed the process!
Kath Schubach, Nurse Practitioner, Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre
Fiona offered her services on a pro bono basis to coach my leadership team following a challenging organisational restructure. I was impressed by Fiona’s professionalism, confidentiality and direct approach; so much so that I engaged her services personally with a view to re-energising my own endeavours. It was a personal investment I’m glad I made.
