WHAT WE DO
 

We're Apricot Consulting, Australia's leading organisational health consulting firm. We have a grand purpose and it is to make the world a better place.

 

We were founded in 2003 when our Founder identified the need for organisations to focus more intentionally on the human side of business. 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.

I have worked with Derek, Apricot's CEO, for over 15 years. Derek is without question honest and trustworthy. He is thought-provoking and has stimulated action-oriented outcomes from my work and life’s occasionally complex challenges.
