Zeal founder Carl R. Lettig

"We help organisations transform so that they reach their potential and their aspirations, Safely. Safely for us means that every aspect of the business links, and drives strategic, operating, financial and human dimensions powerfully and sustainably."

– Carl Luttig, Managing Director - Zeal

For over 35 years I have been a senior driver of significant transformation within the safety and workplace sector.    My work has spanned Africa, Europe, USA and APAC within blue chip organisations, localised operations, industry associations and governments.  

My expertise sits within the mining, resources, retail and commercial sectors where I have worked across all levels from executive boards to field workers.   I have enjoyed delivering many keynote addresses, whitepapers and training forums on safety and leadership and have been the proud recipient of various   industry awards.    Having worked in many of the world’s most politically volatile and unstable environments I bring unique skills in navigating sensitive and diplomatic communications that result in cohesion and action. 

Workplaces and businesses have seen extraordinary challenges and commercial change over the decades as they clamber for sustainability, shareholder value, cost reduction and market share.    I have always operated from the core tenet that:  “safety is a business driver, not just designed for loss prevention and injury management”.    This principle is as relevant today as ever and has been the cornerstone of transformation and team building initiatives throughout my career.

About Zeal

Our Passion: To build trusted relationships with our clients based on delivery of exceptional value. We believe strongly in the concept of co-design and the power of conversation.

Our Mantra: From Safety to Safely.

Our Values: Integrity: Ethically and honestly doing what we say we will do; and, Fun: Allowing the joy of life and the pride of achievement to be expressed and fully experienced through all of our work and relationship activities.

Zeal commenced in 1996 when the founder performed a management buy-out of the CRA Safe Department with 4 colleagues. From that day forward Zeal built a network of the best thinkers and practitioners in safety, risk and change which has enabled us to accumulate considerable intellectual property and experience over our 21 years of operation.

Our model is to provide high quality support and advice to organisations. We are a scalable boutique safety consultancy with a core group of employees supported by a larger network of independent consultants, many of which have been employees at some time in our history.

Our success is built on the capability of our people, track record of delivering results through a belief that every customer is unique and important.

Over 21 years we have helped many organisations in mining, retail, manufacturing, engineering services and telecommunications achieve strategic and tactical objectives by applying the right capability, capacity and methodology.
