Nigel Carey works with individuals and organisations in the areas of leadership development and organisational culture change.

As Director of Thinking Dynamics Pty Ltd he consults to corporate business, schools, government departments, professional associations and not-for-profit organisations.

A good part of his 30 year career has involved him providing management and leadership training to thousands of different people from all sections of the community.


Many of the courses he delivered used the latest research, theory and practice from the behavioural sciences (psychology, neuroscience, emotional intelligence) which often gave participants powerful new insights into how they could manage themselves, maintain relationships and lead people more effectively to achieve personal and organisational goals.


​People often commented that the principles and practices they were learning were so fundamental to success in a changing world that they should be taught in schools. He totally agreed and this is one of the reasons SELschools is now being established.
