Who we are

circleindigo was founded in 1999 by Gary Austin and Justine Marchant two highly experienced professional consultant facilitators with over 25 years experience of group, collaborative and participative working.

Gary Austin

Senior Consultant Facilitator

My natural authority combined with a down to earth approach enables me to build rapport quickly with individuals and organisations. The thread that runs through my work is making connections between people, ideas, concepts and theories. I'm committed to raising awareness and building capacity in people to effectively manage change and transition and build resilience. I continue to have a significant role in the development of the facilitation profession and seek to push the boundaries and raise the bar globally.

Justine Marchant

Senior Consultant Facilitator

I have an intuitive approach and I am at ease in difficult environments, managing uncertainty and tensions. My strength lies in an ability to embrace the complex, drawing out the essential from the complicated. At the core of who I am is the principle of servant leadership and my belief that all people have limitless potential. This enables the individuals and groups that I work with to see possibility and make real progress.
