Former CEO of Feros Care, Jennene Buckley, has launched a new aged care consultancy this week with her business partner Tash Edwards.

Enkindle aims to work with government, aged care providers, peak bodies, boards, executive and senior management of organisations to reimagine, redesign and transform services, systems, and organisations to deliver world-class aged care.

Jennene’s new consultancy will specialise in assisting aged care organisations with:

  • strategic advice
  • organisational strategy planning and development
  • transitioning strategy into operational plans
  • operational reviews
  • program and project establishment services
  • market entry and exit advice
  • tender and business case development support


Jennene has said leaving Feros Care after 20 years was a difficult decision – “but for me, it is about a new adventure and an aspiration to play a much bigger role in shaping the next wave of reform.”

“With the royal commission final report into aged care, the Federal Government’s response, and a roadmap of reform to 2025, I wanted to help shape a world-class aged care system for Australians,” she said.   

 “I hope to wear a few hats within the next five years, supporting government with specific pieces of work to deliver the reform, particularly around system design, stakeholder management and supporting aged care providers to understand the reform and mobilise a tactical strategy to meet the reform head on,” she said.

Jennene and Tash are most looking forward to providing a fresh set of eyes and adding value to the sector.

“We love a start-up, we love innovation and we love a strategy, so working with organisations to refresh, renew and revive their plan, strategy or organisation will be very exciting and rewarding.”
