about us

We strive for positive change through conversations that impact culture.

People are at the heart of our business


As leaders, our values define how we do what we do. They are our guiding principles. At PeopleQ, these values include Heart, Curiosity, Trust, Enduring Outcomes, and Joy. We are sincere about making a difference to the lives of the people we work with, and the workplaces we touch. We lead with Heart, and encourage our clients to do the same through our PQfactor tool.


We are open, and mindful of suspending judgement, allowing our clients to feel free to explore and experiment. Curiosity is the key to how we engage with others. We are natural collaborators, building community wherever we go, and seeking out opportunities to empower others. At the core of this is Trust, which is intrinsically linked to conversational intelligence, because we believe that words create worlds.

We hold ourselves accountable for delivering results, and to ensure that we achieve this for all of our clients, we tailor our solutions and partner with individuals and organisations to achieve impactful and Enduring Outcomes. We do all of this to bring a sense of fulfilment and Joy to every person we work with.
