When we recruit new team members it is vital that we bring in the right blend of experience and skills but also most importantly the right values and behaviors. I have always found that Micki and the team at Talent.Realised take the time to really understand our culture as well as our business and when candidates are put in front of us they are more likely to be a good fit. Consequently, we have appointed a number of Talent.Realised candidates over the last 4 years who have gone on to be strong performers in our business. Talent.Realised collaborative and friendly approach makes them a pleasure to deal with.

Having called on the services of Garth at EA elite to assist in my search for an Executive Assistant recently, I found him to be an exceptional recruiter. Garth took the time to question and probe to enable him to really understand the style of C-suite Executive Assistant needed to support my business across the board along with my personal affairs. Garth’s knowledge of the Sydney market, ability to tap into his vast network of exceptional talent and identify potentially suitable candidates ensured the whole recruitment process was swift and seamless. Garth is, without a doubt, a true professional and stands out within this space.

Garth has exceptional skills - he listens, understands the requirements and finds excellent candidates. His network is fabulous and he never lets you down. Garth is fun, friendly and always delivers. The Boutique companies he has co-founded are successful because he truly gives you sound, individual care. I would thoroughly recommend Garth as I have known him for over 10 years and he has a good track record. We have had the pleasure of seeing each other grow and develop and I look forward too many more years of success.

I have worked with Talent.Realised during my time in various roles, most recently as Head of Marketing at The Athlete's Foot. Three words/statement sum up how Micki and the team at Talent.Realised operate: Keeping it real, Partnership and Integrity. Micki and the team at Talent.Realised operate with complete transparency across all 3 of these platforms. For them, it's not about putting a 'bum on the seat', or a commission in their pocket. It's a legitimate passion to understand the company, the brand, the team culture and my leadership vision. And from this, it's working in true partnership to help me craft the best high-performance marketing team the business needs whilst operating with integrity and honesty to help me navigate the landscape and decision-making process as I balance candidate culture, skills, experience, innovation and contribution. And they keep it real... there's no 'pitch', no gimmick, no fluffy, unnecessary meetings or conversations. It's real, productive, insightful, trusting and valuable.
Head of Marketing Athlete's Foot
I have been working with Micki and the team for over a decade in my role as the Managing Director of the Warner Bros Home Entertainment Group and latterly as the owner of my own business. In my experience, Micki is not just a service provider, but a valued business partner who took the time to get to know me, understand my business and just as importantly, took the time to understand what it means to work with me and has always sent me candidates with a good cultural fit. I respect her opinion and she is not afraid to push for what she believes would be the right outcome for both her candidates as well as my business. I recommend her services unequivocally.

I have had the pleasure of working with Micki Persky for many years. She is someone who invests in understanding all of your needs from immersing herself into your company’s brand and values to identifying the right talent to fit with where you are going vs. where you have been as an organisation. She is a highly collaborative business partner who understands how to add value to people. With the evolution from Saville Persky to Talent.Realised, Micki and her colleagues will no doubt become an even bigger force in the Australian recruitment space.
