About XCS

During the financial purges at CSIRO in the late 1980s and early 1990s, the concept of a loose consortium of independent consultants had considerable appeal - as scientist colleagues were rendered redundant, discarded by the organisation, many joined me to form XCS Consulting in 1993.

With up to 70 names on the register at times, the company was competitive with other agencies in bidding for research projects - and without the excessive bureaucracy and overheads of the parent organizations.

Our skills base was extraordinary, with eminent entomologists, well-known wool researchers and a great depth of experience in veterinary science and also biological control and in-depth dung beetle expertise.


Collectively, our consultants have worked in more than 50 countries on all continents, including the Antarctic.
