Facilitated by International SLA Guru

Joe Caruso
Master of the Art of Service Delivery 

For over 15 years, Joe has provided expert sourcing, SLA and contract management advice to over 110 organisations in over 130 projects covering 70 business functions with contracts worth up to $1.5 billion per annum throughout Australia, New Zealand, Middle East and Asia Pacific.

Being an experienced practitioner and former CIO in Contract Management and Service Agreements, Joe Caruso gives those training with him a deep understanding and bird's eye view of contracts. This comes with his past involvement in both “buy side” and “sell side” of projects allowing him to reach outcomes that are mutually beneficial to both parties, thereby ensuring successful and sustainable relationships.

Besides that, he also creates online learning content for University courses for Melbourne UniversityLondon School of Economics, and University of Missouri - St. Louis.

Joe’s private sector clients includes those in the banking, petroleum and telecommunications while his public sector clients cover numerous federal, state, and local government departments and agencies.



“Joe provided me a very structured framework for creating an SLA from scratch to negotiating with others. I learnt that it is more than just copy-pasting from Google and inserting KPIs. There are a lot of fundamental elements to be considered when dealing with SLA before engaging with stakeholders. The course is an eye-opener for me as I got to listen to Joe share about best practices in his career which I can relate to my own field of work. Now I know how to react to a situation when it arises as Joe has showed me the way”
William Tan, Head of Regional IT Service Management, CIMB Bank

“The trainer had depth of knowledge and provided adequate examples to facilitate understanding. The business requirement and benefits is the main strength of the event. This is my second course with Kexxel Group and the courses are very specific and informative.”
Rajesh Bangera – Supply Chain Manager, Service Delivery, Emirates Airlines

“Joe provided the ideal environment for learning and the made the subject easy to understand. Case studies, examples and tips are valuable”
Abdul Rafiz Rasid, General Manager, Telekom Malaysia

“The training is superb. We learned a great deal of new ideas which can be implemented in our organizations.”
Mahani Masni Mubarak – Manager, Tenaga Nasional Berhad

“Joe provided the needed understanding on SLA which through implementations will be beneficial to all. I learned how to develop SLA’s; what content to have in an SLA and also the important points that should be taken into consideration when drafting an SLA. We can definitely apply what we learn from the course to our current job.”
Mohamad Sham, Senior Manager - Procurement, Tenaga Nasional Berhad

“Joe showed us that everything can be done in a systematic manner. It helps us better manage our time and deliver SLAs to our stakeholders within the stipulated time. I would recommend the course to others as Joe is very experienced. He provided useful tips and managed to answer any question thrown at him with ease.”
