WHAT WE DO
We're Apricot Consulting, Australia's leading organisational health consulting firm.
We were founded in 2003 when our Founder identified the need for organisations to focus more intentionally on the human side of business to drive commercial outcomes. This belief has been reaffirmed by our years of experience in leadership training, Executive coaching, culture change, change management, corporate social responsibility programs, and digital transformation.
Our unique methodology and data driven toolkits based on 7 key areas of health underpin and integrate all our services to ensure that businesses achieve an improvement in social and commercial outcomes.
Our team is comprised of highly-knowledgable and skilled consultants with years of experience within organisational health transformation and our service advisory, strategy and management are unlike anything you've seen in the market.
