Our Co-Founders and Leaders


For a long time we’ve believed that the change experience created in organisations can be better.


It’s our passion and where we see the biggest opportunity for organisations to truly harness the potential of their people and their technology as we move into era of change that’s completely different to the way business has operated in the past.


We know what works and how to create and sustain environments that leverage AI and automation, how to change people’s behaviours and habits in order to deliver sustainable business results.  Our approach is grounded in the latest thinking from neuroscience and psychology and coupled with our experience of the practical ‘how to’. We are strong advocates for inclusive design principles to ensure decision-making can benefit from the richness of diverse thoughts and ideas and the change is effective. 


Put simply, we help you create change that’s better- in less time and with less disruption and cost.


Since 2019 we’ve been working with organisations who are embarking on their AI and automation journey.


In early 2021 we became the first ‘people focused’ organisation to be accepted into the Emerj’ Global AI Accelerator Program designed for businesses specialising in AI and automation delivery. This program has enabled us to learn from experts leading intelligent technologies all around the world and this has significantly influenced how we help organisations every day.


We also work within an ecosystem of specialists across the technical side of AI and automation, data, process reengineering and communications, which we draw from depending on the organisations need at the time.
