We engaged Dawson McDonald to assist us to undertake a Risk Culture Survey. At all times, the Principals, John and Carmel, were receptive to any ideas and feedback we had and were always available for advice. Their ongoing support since the survey was undertaken is appreciated.

The survey instrument was most effective in identifying the existing risk culture and the detailed analysis has provided us with a positive starting point to move forward. We were very grateful for the efforts made to have the report and recommendations available to senior executives within a very short timeframe from the date the survey was completed. It was again a measure of their responsiveness to our requests.

We would certainly recommend their services to any organisation wishing to measure their risk culture.

The City of Casey engaged Dawson McDonald to conduct a risk culture survey for the organisation. The support and assistance we received from John and Carmel from the beginning of the project to the end and ongoing has been just fantastic. They were open to feedback and suggestions from us regarding the survey and the feedback we have received from our employees who dealt with Carmel and John about the survey has been very positive.

The survey results and recommendations were delivered very promptly following the completion and their ongoing support has been very beneficial. The results will assist us to develop our ongoing risk management strategy action plans over the next few years and we will not hesitate to engage them to assess our risk culture in three years time.

I would recommend them particularly given their expertise in the public sector.
