Dianne Hollyoak offers customers a broad employment capability with a strong industrial relations based practice. Having run her own company as a specialist in industrial relations and employment services and held positions in corporations acting as advisor on industrial relations, Dianne brings a unique understanding of the complexities around workplace and industrial law.
 
Alan Girle has a particular focus on occupational health and safety and regulatory law matters and is highly regarded as a specialist in the WHS space.  Alan’s focus is on assisting clients following a workplace incident, including crisis management, incident investigation and regulatory response.  He also assists clients in improving their compliance and risk-prevention strategies, by providing training, executive briefings and conducting compliance audits.  His ability to draft submissions to government concerning legislative reform is also highly valued, having worked intensely on legislative reform in his former role as Director of Safety and Health in the Queensland Resources Council.
 
This strengthens the core expertise of the existing ABLA Queensland team and our national footprint. 
 
Nigel Ward, CEO states, “we are chuffed to have Di and Alan join us.  They are an amazing fit for our mission based culture.  Our customers will immediately feel at home; quality balanced with practical, fun and caring people.”
 
Dianne and Alan are excited to support the NSW Business Chamber and the Australian Business family.   For any questions regarding this appointment, please call Nigel Ward on 1300 565 846.
