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.
Apricot Consulting, leaning on more than 20 years in our global work with executives, teams and organisations, explored what makes workplaces healthy. We determined in our extensive consultation and research that success in the following 7 areas drive the health of leaders, teams, organisations, and the broader community:
Meaning, Relationship, Leadership, Creativity, Agility, Decision Making and Delivery.
These 7 areas make up the Apricot Health Index, and they underpin all the services that Apricot offers.

What people say
I have worked with Apricot for a number of years and have gained significantly from this in terms of insight, thoughtfulness and a much broader perspective. He steps outside the corporate view to ensure issues are considered in their totality. Discussing (debating) ideas in coaching, always brings out new perspectives, opportunities and insights not previously contemplated. Apricot creates a challenging, but solution focused environment that leads to better decisions. I have benefitted from that both professionally and personally.

Change Management & Culture Change
With COVID-19 disrupting most businesses we have seen that the investment into Apricot Consulting has given us confidence in our ability as an organization to adapt to distributed working models and continue to work effectively together.
This investment will go a long way to ensure our sustainability into the next decade.

FORMER CEO OF JEMENA
I have worked with Derek, Apricot's Chairman, 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. Derek brings a new dimension to discussions, which drive new idea’s that are not possible in normal business discussions.
