Key Sabre Team Members

The Sabre Corporate Development team is composed of highly experienced and professional people who have the knowledge to underpin their actions.  People able to deliver everything from "serious fun" to "serious outcomes". 

Talan Miller

Managing Director


Talan founded Sabre in 1988 based initially upon insights into teamwork, leadership and team building gained from service as a young officer in the Australian Army.  He also had a brief stint in the film and television industry as an advisor, which added some theatricality and flair to Sabre’s approaches.  


He has worked successfully with top level corporate, government, defence, NGO and sporting clients in Australasia, The Pacific, The USA, Europe, The Middle East and Asia.  He is an accomplished leader, businessman, facilitator, speaker, expert in team role theory (using The Belbin Team Role Model since 1989, and now Distributor for Australia) and recognised innovator in this field.
