We develop human capacity for sustainable futures.

We are Performance Frontiers.

In our world of change and complexity, where much feels out of control, we help people and organisations thrive by tapping into their innate capacity for transformation.

To imagine, collaborate, learn, adapt, create, grow with purpose and have a meaningful impact in the world.

Founded by our Managing Director Gretel Bakker over 20 years ago, we have grown into a collective of transformation specialists, designers, facilitators, coaches, systems thinkers, and strategists working with some of Australia’s biggest brands.

We’re united by the belief that our work, the work of human and organisational transformation, will help create more sustainable futures for us all: where people, businesses, communities and our planet thrive.

This is the work we do every day at Performance Frontiers:

Developing human capacity for sustainable futures.
