Helping you make beautiful online|
At The Tarn Group, we are fortunate to have a team that comes together to source the best and most efficient solutions to problems, working with a diverse range of professionals across the world to make a positive difference in people's lives while still retaining our roots in Dunedin, New Zealand.

Advancing digital education

With the steady growth of our online learning platform, Bracken, The Tarn Group, has become a leader in digital education. Initially serving as educational support for our video analysis clients, Bracken has put successful online education within reach for clients across multiple sectors.

To date, we have helped 45 organisations transform their business, while still helping sports improve their performance.

A new name for a bigger future

After a successful decade and a half as Siliconcoach, our accomplishments stretched far beyond the sporting sector. We felt that this change was important to recognise and rebranded as The Tarn Group.

Our brand tells our story elegantly; as a tarn is a catchment of water that nourishes its environment, we are a collection of ideas, knowledge and experience that make a positive difference through innovation.

Building great partnerships

Promoting positive change through collaboration, The Tarn Group has successfully partnered with a number of inspiring companies to create effective products that seamlessly fit into the lives of their customers.

Our growing list of partners include; Education Technology, Evaluation Associates and Vault Intel.

Improving the experience

The application of video analysis soon grew to reach beyond improving athlete performance.

Dialed in Motion and PnO Data Solutions were formed in response to industry experts in athletics and prosthetics seeking to develop tailored video solutions to aid in the fitting and proper use of equipment.

The power of video analysis

The Tarn Group originally formed by Joe Morrison as Siliconcoach, aimed to help athletes identify areas for improvement in their performance with a cutting-edge video-analysis tool.

As Chief Executive, James leads The Tarn Group.

James has a Bachelor of Physical Education, and has recently completed his MBA. During his MBA studies he used Siliconcoach as the basis for his major consulting project.

Previously Bracken Business Development Manager, he has plenty of experience with staff and clients of The Tarn Group. He came to us from ACC in 2014 where he worked as a health and safety consultant to employers for over 8 years.

James was also part of the New Zealand Black Sticks hockey team between 2003 and 2009, during which time he participated in two Olympics (Athens and Beijing).
