Australia commits to acquisition of next ISR remotely piloted aircraft:

PODCAST: The shift from consulting business to specialised engineering leader, Greg Barsby, QinetiQ

Greg Barsby, QuinetiQ

Greg Barsby, the managing director of QinetiQ Australia, first joined the Defence Connect podcast during Avalon 2017 to discuss their acquisition of logistics support and project management business RubiKon. Greg now joins us to discuss what made that integration a success and how they have capitalised on this growth opportunity.

In their shift from consulting business to engineering leader, Barsby will unpack the challenges that they have faced along the way, the programs that they are currently involved in, and the fundamentals of their relationship with DST.

Finally, Barsby will explain how they differentiate themselves from other organisations in terms of incentivisation, rewards and recognition for their team, the culture and attributes that they are trying to nurture within the business, and how they are striving to be a workforce rich in “diversity of thought”.

Enjoy the podcast,
