Creating people impact

with Dr Joshua Shingles | Associate Director

My purpose is to help people to see perspective and possibility.

We spoke with Associate Director and long-term Mapien, Dr Joshua Shingles about what drives him to do what he does.

What do you enjoy most about working at Mapien?

The people I work with at Mapien are genuine, clever, kind and driven. I work with an amazing team that loves to win and sees collaboration, support and commitment as the key to that success.

What drives you to do what you do?

Taking organisations forward is tough. So it’s very rewarding to play a part in seeing leaders have the confidence and ability to effect necessary change in their organisations. I see it as my specific purpose to anticipate, and provide the right strategies for, the complex people management problems that arise along the way.

What do you think is key to 40 years in business?

The relentless pursuit of excellence, having and growing exceptional people, strong business relationships and a leadership team that is committed to all three.


Joshua has been with Mapien for 17 years, based in our Brisbane office. Joshua’s approach to creating people impact is characterised by a strong sense of purpose, patience and perseverance.
