Who we are

Questo is a team of human-centric practitioners who share a desire for better work experiences and workplaces.

Our experience in organisational change is deep but not bound by rigid charts and theories. We are not fazed by disorder and uncertainty. In fact we revel in innovating with what is at hand.

Our clients include organisations, business owners, universities and local government and enlightened technology vendors. They choose Questo because we mix expertise and creativity to design practical plans that are dynamic and can adapt for an enjoyable, effective change journey.

We have a long track record of delivering on our promise.

People first

As passionate advocates for the human factor, we seek to release the talent and energy that drive sustainable change. We love those moments of delight when people are genuinely engaged.

Trust

Success comes from a basis of trust and integrity. We do what we say, and say what we mean. We help you explore feasible solutions, and we share our knowledge and experience as we work with you to reveal the path to your destination.

Design

We are purposeful about what we do. Our actions are guided by design principles and enabled with design sensibilities like empathy, creativity, curiousity and optimism.

Helen talks to Dr Jen Frahm (Conversations of Change Podcasts) on the importance of ‘design’ in organisational change.
