Senior People Operations

KOB Consulting was founded on the premise of providing People Operations to Start Ups and Growth businesses, but as we have evolved, we have now found our niche is bringing People Operations from the Start Up community to Corporate HR. 

We are well informed by People Operations from the Silicon Valley which is built upon an entrepreneurial mindset, often bootstrapping, and leading with customer centric design. 


Our approach to consulting is to seek to understand your business before anything else.  We believe co-creation leads to better people outcomes.  We will always approach our work with kindness, care and curiosity.  What we do impacts lives, we will never lose sight of this.
