Kineo Pacific expands presence in Australia


Kineo Pacific is delighted to announce the launch of a second Australian office in Canberra and a new alliance with Canberra-based HR consulting firm, Effective People. The opening of the new office in the nation’s capital provides Kineo’s Australian team with more capacity to service its existing client base and share its global award winning elearning solutions with more corporate and government organisations based in the Australian Capital Territory.

Kineo, both locally and globally, has established an excellent reputation amongst government departments to deliver cutting edge elearning and LMS services. Kineo is experienced in working on projects with various departments and agencies in areas such as health, defence, infrastructure, justice, environment, transport, education, tourism and immigration.

In conjunction with the opening of the new Canberra office, Kineo and Effective People have announced an alliance that will offer best practice blended learning solutions. Effective People designs and delivers practical and targeted facilitator-led training programmes that deliver real outcomes in the workplace. They are service providers on numerous Commonwealth Government panels and their commitment to quality and customer service is the cornerstone for the many long-lasting client relationships they have established.

Kineo and Effective People bring together specialist skills and expertise to improve workplace performance through learning and technology with specific experience and understanding of the government and public sector. Both companies share a similar approach to designing custom learning solutions that leverage proven adult learning techniques and deliver measurable results.

Kineo’s Head of Business Development for the Australian region, Zack Harvey, is excited by the opportunities that this new announcement will deliver: “Being just over a year since Kineo launched its first Australian office in Melbourne, the demand for our progressive and fresh elearning and LMS services has led to this exciting new phase in Kineo’s journey."

"The landscape of blended learning is changing all the time as more informal and mobile elements start to be integrated into the overall blend, so there is an emerging set of new opportunities and channels to solve performance challenges. This combined with Kineo’s experience delivering world-class learning solutions for the government and public sector is why we are delighted to announce our alliance with Effective People and the opening of our new Canberra-based office.”

CEO of Effective People, Joyanne Gough, added “Last year, we identified a gap in our ability to deliver total learning solutions to our clients and recognised that the use of technology and elearning was the answer to this. The partnership with Kineo will ensure that we are able to draw on highly effective and proven technology, systems and expertise in the development and delivery of blended learning packages. This alliance will benefit both Kineo and Effective People and all of our clients.”
