What we do
Q5 is an international award-winning consulting firm, specialising in organisational health. From cracking strategic challenges, and designing the most effective organisational structures to building capability in teams, we help companies work better and smarter.
We work in three tightly linked domains to help organisations transform: Strategy (setting the right direction), Design (creating operating models to deliver the strategy) and People & Change (developing people and putting the elements in place to make the change work). We do this across a large variety of sectors, including Media & Technology, Retail & Consumer Goods, Health and Public Sector & Not-For-Profits.
Why do companies choose us

Our projects aren’t ‘cookie cutter’, and neither is our team. Our consultants come from a range of backgrounds (including but not limited to: chemistry, engineering, teaching, psychology, commerce & analytics), helping us tackle the most complex challenges our clients face.
