Rox Dawson


Rox has been helping organisations streamline processes and utilise online technologies for more than 20 years.  It wasn't called "digital transformation" way back when he started but he has been transforming organisations using digital technologies for most of this time.

Rox has a formal background in Information Technology with a BSc from UWA and is a Senior Member of the Australian Computer Society (ACS), the professional association for Australia's ICT sector.

Through a broad range of roles in organisations big and small, and long term experience consulting both in Australia and overseas, Rox understands ensuring that organisations need solutions that effectively utilise people, process and technology to achieve organisation strategic goals.

Carolyn Combes

Marketing Manager

Carolyn is our words-person who specialises in creating quality content, researching topics, developing marketing campaigns, and looking into web analytics and search engine optimisation reports. She particularly enjoys proofreading and editing existing content. She is passionate about eliminating the overuse of capital letters and increasing the use of punctuation especially the rarely used apostrophe and the under-used comma.

Carolyn has been a marketing communications specialist for nearly 30 years and has worked with Rox Dawson in a number of businesses for nearly half of that! When she's not working, Carolyn negotiates her home life around two teenage boys, her husband, the cat, and the chickens. She loves spending time pottering in the shady parts of her garden and still plays "slowed-down-due-to-old-age" hockey and floorball.
