Shared Wisdom

An industry leader with 50+ years of executive/Board experience told me:

“Leadership is about vision and direction. Management is about speed and efficiency. I’ve never seen a person equally balanced in both. You have to have qualities of both but you will always be more of one or the other so you have to know yourself and therefore put the right people around you to compensate. If you’re a great leader you probably can see the big picture brilliantly but you need people around you focusing on the management”


Thank you to Deanne who led the search for our new CFO, Warrick Ranson! We challenged Deanne to find a person who not only satisfied the high technical criteria we set but the much higher cultural fit bar. I was very pleased with the people Deanne brought forward, leaving in us in the enviable position of having to decide between some truly excellent people.

Deanne was an absolute pleasure to work with and the unsolicited feedback we received from the people she worked with was truly inspiring. Well done Deanne and looking forward to working with you again.

CEO, Oz Minerals


I would just like to commend Deanne for her skill and meticulous attention in successfully recruiting a senior position for us.
She takes recruitment to another level and offers a truly specialised and boutique recruitment service that can't be matched by the bigger firms.
Highly recommended

Managing Director, Mitolo Farms, Mitolo Wines


If you are like me, you will think the art of headhunting and true business partnering for talent acquisition is lost - best to do it yourself. The only way your opinion will change is if you engage Deanne Tindale.

Many recruiters claim to be headhunters, few are. Many promise the world, few deliver. We wonder what we paid for and we know we could have done the same thing ourselves, so we are really only buying time. This will not be the experience you have with Dreamvast.

Deanne has the key elements in spades - an extensive network, commercial acumen, results orientation and tenacity, and the most important ingredient (which you either have or you don't) the ability to read people very well, think outside the square, and know if they will fit the culture.

Aside from being a true talent acquisition partner - she is a terrific human being, will invest in you and the business, is authentic, honest and great fun. Its been a pleasure working together and I look forward to the next assignment.

Deanne has assisted our Board with a number of Senior Executive and Board placements and done an exceptional job in finding high quality candidates for the roles. In all cases Deanne has communicated concisely with the candidates which has made the Company's selection process simple and timely. Thanks Deanne.

Jeff Branson
CEO, JSW Australia


Throughout this process, Deanne was highly engaged and focussed on the outcome. I never once felt like she was just working a data base nor that was she just being expedient. There was no pressure on me to appoint rather constant dialogue and guidance throughout the entire process.

I could go on but I think you have the idea. If you have a senior appointment to make and looking for someone to truly partner with for that very important journey then I cannot recommend Deanne highly enough.
