About US

Relatus was founded with a single mission: to build next generation human capability to help you capitalise on the human advantage. 

re + latus = to refer

In latin, Relatus means to restore, repay and return. We work with individuals to help better their interpersonal and intrapersonal skills. We refine and develop soft, social and emotional skills and work with you to create strategies that are implemented to align with career and business outcomes to ensure success. 


We’ve always specialised in relationships, starting with business networking skills through to managing complex networks of stakeholders.


We've evolved since our founding in 2005, with our focus on giving you the human advantage for the future. We believe our capability development programs coupled with our advisory services, will improve your teams confidence, communication and credibility. 

Meet The Team

Our team consists of a small core group, plus we engage specialists in the development and delivery of our programs nationally and internationally where required.

    Our Colours
    • Orange combines the energy of red and the happiness of yellow. Orange represents enthusiasm, fascination, happiness, creativity, determination, attraction, success, encouragement, and stimulation. Orange increases oxygen supply to the brain, produces an invigorating effect, and stimulates mental activity. In heraldry, orange is symbolic of strength and endurance.

    • Blue is the colour of the sky and sea. It is often associated with depth and stability. It symbolises trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, intelligence, faith, truth, and heaven. Blue is considered beneficial to the mind and body. It slows human metabolism and produces a calming effect. Blue is strongly associated with tranquility and calmness. In heraldry, blue is used to symbolise piety and sincerity.

    Our Approach

    Committed to building next generation human relational capability. At Relatus we have developed an award winning, proven methodology that ranges from micro learning through to simulated experiences. 

    Our consultative approach combines our extensive knowledge & experience with the most relevant content, whereby, we empower senior executives, all levels of management, front line and support staff with relevant and proven strategies.

    We work together with each client combining advisory and capability development services. Our programs are highly practical, deeply personalised and results focussed. We help you to strengthen relationships, maximise opportunities and improve the confidence of the team when

    representing themselves and the organisation.


    Since Ebbinghaus and his pioneering experiential studies of the memory, we know that we tend to forget 80% of what we have learned within 30 days if there is no attempt to retain the new knowledge. Therefore, frequent short bursts of content are much more effective than one-off learning interventions or ‘binge’ learning. Active recall after a few days or spaced repetition of content nuggets ensures a dramatic increase in knowledge retention and most importantly - behavioural change.

    Glass Buildings




    We customise, refine, embed and measure.

    We focus on improving the way people communicate and connect by harnessing their own natural style, and aligning it with strategies that guide them in order to bring out the best in them and every situation they face, be it personal or professional.

    Participants are empowered to create and manage viable networks, that support individual and organisational outcomes.


    One hit wonder work.

    One size fits all work. 


    Instead of teaching generic  ‘tips-and-tricks’ or using a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach, we believe that every person learns in his or her own way, and each has unique characteristics.


    Therefore to develop and embed effective relational skills you require a much more personal and planned system, delivered over time with blended learning.
