Trusted Partners in Regulatory Compliance & Training

Through our commitment to best practice, our comprehensive suite of service modules is designed to provide licensed venue managers with a sophisticated back up service that allows them to get on with what they do best - managing and growing their business.

Stringent compliance requires monitoring, training, evaluation and best practice (continuous improvement). As we all know, the hospitality business is complicated, detailed and time consuming, making it increasingly difficult for management to ensure they are always across all aspects of the regulatory requirements imposed by government. That's precisely where we fit in. To inform, measure and improve the compliance and best practice elements of your business.

From Board Governance, Risk Management, Responsible Gambling, Liquor Compliance, WH&S through to Food Safety, Anti-money Laundering, Armed Robbery Awareness and a range of professional development and accredited training modules, our ability to navigate the potential minefield of regulation and compliance is unparalleled anywhere in Australia.
