Adam Colquhoun, Founding Principal
Originally from country Victoria, Adam started out as an Industrial Officer at the Victorian Farmers’ Federation (VFF).
In 2008 whilst working at the VFF, Adam completed his Masters of Industrial and Employee Relations. Not afraid of hard work, Adam then decided to go to law school at Monash University whilst working full time. Over the next 4 years Adam continued to work in workplace relations whilst completing his law degree.
“Studying and working was tough. But it gave me a unique insight into how to apply my learnings from law school to real life problems at work. My focus wasn’t just on how to pass the next exam, but instead how I could apply what I was learning to work”
During Adam’s studies he worked at the VFF, Australian Retailers’ Association and a mid-tier law firm, all in workplace relations roles.
Law degree finished and HECs debt maxed out, Adam went looking for a new job which would help him to fund the remaining steps to becoming a Lawyer. He landed at VECCI in a Workplace Relations Consulting role.
