Barry heads a team of extremely experienced "Operational Risk" specialists that include degree qualified Occupational Health and Safety Managers, Environmental Scientists, Building Engineers and Strategic Security personnel.
Risk is such a widely used term these days that people use it as a descriptor for all types of business activities, when Barry talks about his teams Risk activities he is really talking about "Anything that can impact the business in a physical way".
Whilst we do not profess to be expert in every risk that will influence your business and its operations, we are experts in helping you sort through the Risk, we have experienced the entire gambit of risks to many organisations from the smallest exposures to the severest incidents that an organisation or its individual members can face. We specialise in "Strategic - Innovative - Intelligent - Solutions" but we also have a sensible and pragmatic approach to the problem solving. Our clients include some of the largest organisations in the Asia-Pacific Region with relationships that cover many years growing with and within their organisations.
From basic Occupational Health and Safety Management through Environmental and Engineering exposures to complex operational risk projects this group will not let you down. Their recent projects include Operational Risk Management of the Main Stadium (Birds Nest) at the 2008 Olympics, Property Risk strategies of the 2008 Pope's visit to Australia and APEC leaders meeting in 2007.
Our people sit on Australian Standards committees, Property Council of Australia, National Risk Committee, US State departments, Overseas Security Advisory Committee (OSAC) as well as many other Standards and Legislative panels and various working groups.
Barry's team add the most value to an organisation by actively working on your issues, understanding your business drivers and then working with your people to effectively implement behavioural, organisational or engineering changes over a planned period to improve your business activities. Each of their services is overlayed by a multi-disciplined depth of expertise and experience.
Barry's processes have driven down our incident numbers, severity and our Insurance premiums over his many years association with our company; we couldn't have done it alone.
By using this process we can cover our needs for an extremely high level strategic risk resource at times whilst maintaining a lower level resource for our daily needs, it makes sound business sense to have depth in experience.

Austbrokers Sydney Pty Ltd is part of one of the three largest insurance broking networks in Australia with 30 years in Financial Services, over 250,000 clients nationally, and over $1 billion in insurance premiums. You could say we’ve earned our stripes. And we only got there by focusing on our clients.
Our team includes hand picked industry specialists. Without putting too fine a point on it, most generalists in this highly complex specialised area of insurance and risk management just can’t possibly give you confidence that they have the depth of knowledge, the industry experience or the acumen to negotiate the ‘minefield’ of insurance, let alone adequately tailor solutions that give you the right cover at the right price. You can end up paying thousands too much, and get far too little.
If you DO need to make a claim, you want a broker with a solid reputation for going in to bat for you, representing you, (not the insurer), and NOT giving up until YOU have the very best possible outcome to your claim.
It’s for all these reasons you’ll be absorbed by the ‘human stories’ in these pages. It’s our belief you’ll see that insurance isn’t about filling in impersonal forms and high premiums. It’s about people. It’s about you. It’s about a company with the passion and commitment to protect you and your interests.
