Your senior managers and professionals are likely to have access to confidential and sensitive information.

Yet you don't lock them away... you trust them to judge what’s confidential and what’s not, and who they should (and should not) discuss certain issues with.

It's no different at a PowerHouse.

In fact it's easy to find peers to collaborate with and talk to - without compromising confidentiality or commercial considerations - given the size of the PowerHouse group (typically 20+ individuals) and the diversity of their backgrounds and current employment (drawn from big business, small business, government agencies and non-profit bodies, from a variety of industries).

Plus, all PowerHouse Professionals sign non-disclosure agreements and our culture is one of respect for sensitive information.
