What We Do

A Market Leader in Defence & Government Professional Services

duMonde understands the complexities of the Defence sector and the strategic challenges faced by both Government & Defence Industry in this unique and exciting growth market. As one of Australia’s leading boutique Government & Defence training and consulting firms, we are trusted by clients at all levels of the Defence supply-chain to help them improve and grow.

With our team of seasoned experts, made up of former military officers and executives from the Department of Defence and the largest Defence prime contracting firms in the country, duMonde leverages this first-hand experience to provide guidance and support to clients seeking to deal with difficult issues, from leading major strategic reviews, through to critical assessments of Australian Industry Capability and delivering challenging organisational change. We do this with passion and a sense of pride in what we can contribute, with our outputs resulting in actionable strategies and plans and our training courses being widely recognised for their practical applications and deliverables.

Led by former Defence Industry executive and duMonde Managing Director, Nick Mondou, and supported by duMonde Chairman Jim McDowell (himself a former Australian and Saudi Arabian chief of global defence giant BAE Systems), duMonde’s experienced team completely understand Defence’s culture, supply chain, management, security and intelligence imperatives, and are keenly informed on areas of past and continuing development.
