Elevating Excellence

“If there is one thing I have learned in my years on this planet, it’s that the happiest and most fulfilled people I’ve known are those who devoted themselves to something bigger and more profound than merely their self-interest.”

John Glenn, Astronaut

“I want to come to work for more than just work”

Can we change the world? We can certainly change it for a few talented individuals—and with our help, they might just change the world for us.

We are successful because we make a difference. We know we punch above our weight. Our business is about being clever, maximising the leverage to be gained from what we know and what others have. We want to apply that philosophy and our skills to life outside our business as well.

The Elevating Excellence program is our contribution—using who and what we know to give a hand to a few who have talent, a drive and a vision. We call it Elevating Excellence because we aim to support our partners to level up, to take that jump to the next stage of their careers.

Elevating Excellence is eclectic. It’s not about supporting charities or foundations, although many of us do that too. It’s about people.

Individuals who seek to excel.

Who undoubtedly inspire, create and make a difference to those around them, and with just a little help, could do so much more.

We don’t know what our next project will be. We do know it will come to us from a heart filled with passion and determination to achieve something amazing, and that it will be our privilege to help.

Mechelle Moore

Current Partner

Mechelle runs a charity working with women and children at risk of trafficking and sexual exploitation on the Thai-Burmese border.

Mechelle is a previous client of Kiah Consulting. We first met her in a public sector role, well on her way up the corporate ladder. But somewhere along that journey, Mechelle’s life took a dramatic turn. She found her passion in helping women and children at risk from the sexual slavery trade, and now leads her own charity, Global Alms Inc. She has given up friends, family and her own country to work with vulnerable women and children, teaching them self-defence, life and business skills to support their economic and social freedom and independence.

Mechelle is modest to self-deprecating. She told us that she wasn’t aiming to change the world. But last year she and her small team gave self-defence, life and business skills to 500 women and children at risk. She may not be changing the world but she has definitely changed the world of those 500 people.
