Sally Pulley

Director and Consultant

About

My interest in risk management and situational awareness was triggered at University, with my first trip into the depths of a working underground coal mine. In my experience, there is nothing like stepping into the lift cage of a deep mine to build awareness of risks and engineering standards.

I am a director of Extrinsic Services Ltd, which was incorporated in 1999. Extrinsic melds the craft of intelligence with risk management and project disciplines to help organisations explore and own their unique futures. We work with people, companies and organisations that want to do things outside of the ordinary and routine – through innovation, and by adopting novel and unusual ways of looking at the world. I am also a partner of Business Cycles, which has a track record in horticulture.

In summary, my work can be described as helping organisations to create certainty of outcome by identifying and managing uncertainties. Over the last 40 years I have worked with more than fifty organisations; this rich mosaic of practical experience provides me with insights into governance structures, organisational design, business transformation, and project disciplines.

I was honoured to be appointed to the Audit and Risk Committee of the Parliamentary Counsel Office in 2014, and to become the first non-lawyer to Chair that Committee.

Areas of Expertise:

I first became a company director in the UK during the 1980’s, and since then I have founded and directed specialist organisations in both the UK and NZ.

A checklist of experience includes:

  • Governance (both as a company director and an independent advisor);
  • Audit and Risk Committee (member and Chair);
  • Intelligence analysis;
  • Risk management;
  • Complexity theory;
  • Data analytics;
  • Information technology (IT);
  • Independent Quality Assurance (IQA); and
